Title kind of gives away the question, but here we go.
Very recently another meta-thread has appeared "warning" about the possible appearance of questions related to a CodeChef challenge. There have been a number of these posted, and they often lead me asking the following simple question:
Why does the Mathematics Stack Exchange community care about monitoring for such problems?
I am of the opinion that our "Contest Problem" policy should be enforced in quite narrow circumstances. A couple of prime examples would be USAMTS problems and national/international olympiad problems. These are explicitly mathematical contests, the results of which impact the mathematics community. CodeChef challenges, on the other hand, are programming challenges run by a private company.
So please enlighten me as to why we (or perhaps more specifically our moderators who have to verify flags raised on these matters and do the locking-and-deleting-answers thing) should be expending any effort applying the contest question policy to CodeChef-derived questions. Is there a benefit to this site that I am missing?
