The following passage from the Skeptics FAQ has always bothered me:
However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain __ to me”, then you are probably OK.
While that's perfectly acceptable for other Stack Exchange sites, I don't think it is here. Simply put, we verify rather than explain. I don't think a single “I would like others to explain __ to me” type of question would ever fall as on-topic. Therefore, that section of the FAQ is misleading.
Can something be done about this?
