This question was already asked concerning this but my question is inherently different. What can be asked here?Please read what follows.
It seems to me that the site has lost its purpose or that I have totally misunderstood the FAQ, as I am fairly new to the site I feel forced to ask the question here.
According to some moderators some specific science questions can't be asked here even if the questions make claims of which the OP is skeptical of. Example: Question
But some other questions are indeed allowed and those questions need at least some basic knowledge of the science in question. Example: Medicine || Chemistry/Physics || Biology || Chemistry And there are many more examples.
So really now, what questions are deemed "appropriate" for the site and which ones are not?
Mainly so I can ask questions that won't be closed.
Edit: I made some research in meta and found this: Validity There the moderator says I quote:
Skeptics.SE has a very broad scope of potential areas it covers; the way we limit our scope is to only look at areas where there are claims being made that seem dubious. For example, if you just have a question about finance, we aren't interested. Go ask on money.stackexchange.com or quant.stackexchange.com, or somewhere else on the Internet. But if you have a question where someone says something that sounds dubious about finance, we jump into action to try to find the truth.
That doesn't mean of course that skeptics are experts in finance right? Now that I read that it becomes even more confusing....
