Here we go again: we have another question of the sort "Is this claim true, or a myth", where the answer is "No evidence for its truth, and theoretically impossible". The question is: Does stacking cellphones drain the battery of the top one?
Any answer of that sort will get shot down through the "No theoretical answers" rule. Moderators even shoot down comments of that sort. This essentially leaves the question unanswerable.
I made a suggestion that the rule should be modified but that was left entirely without consideration.
So what do we do about this? It is extremely frustrating that answers that shows the impossibility of a claim gets shot down on what is essentially a technicality, or worse: a faulty wording, in that the rule conflates "theoretical" with "speculative".
How are we supposed to answer questions about claims when the question can only be answered by pointing to the impossibility of the claim?
