My question specifically concerns this question, which was closed as "Not suitable for this site." I suspect that what made this question unsuitable is that there was no context or work shown.
When I saw the problem (before it had been closed), I tried to get a bit of context. The OP said they knew a related example, so I commented asking for the specifics. The OP then gave the example in another comment (and even linked to a relevant question), and I figured that was good enough for context/work. But the question was closed after that, so maybe I'm wrong.
My first (non-titular) question: is the amount of context/work the OP gave with that related example actually good enough? I thought it showed they had tried a little and done some research, but what do yinz think?
As for the titular question, I believe that it's better if context is added straight into the question rather than in comments, because then people don't have to scroll through a bunch of stuff to get the whole question. Do other people agree? If so, is it necessary? Should I refrain from answering questions where the context can only be found in comments?
If I'm wrong about why the question was closed, I'm still curious about the general questions in the above paragraph. I'd also be curious as to the real reason, in that case.
One final thing: I should delete my answer, right? If the question is unsuitable for the site, then as per the Enforcement of Quality Standards, I never should have answered in the first place and thus I should delete it?
