I recently attempted to answer a question about statistics on MSE, but didn't bother with completing my answer because there was too little traffic on the question and the OP took no interest. I wasn't sure what the general approach is to statistics questions on MSE - do they add to the site, and thus should be answered in order to help other users? Or should they be flagged for migration to Cross Validated?
The question I linked above was downvoted, and didn't attract the usual good quality answers or comments (even though it is a poorly asked question). Was it down-voted because it was off-topic?
