There's a lot of talk about PSQ (problem statement questions).
It was recently suggested in this question that PSQ should be an issue at the upcoming election.
From the aforementioned question:
"Since it wasn't clear, a problem statement question is a question that essentially (and often, literally) consists of nothing more than the statement of a problem".
And from the FAQ:
What kind of questions should I not ask here?
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
I'm not claiming the sentences above are contradicting, but certainly aren't on the same page as each other.
When I first found out about MSE, I asked a few questions (which aren't associated with this account, by the way) and from actually having lost the time to read the FAQ, I thought I was supposed to ask questions exactly by typing nothing else than the PSQ (if it happened to be one).
If you're gonna have an issue with PSQ, at least make the FAQ more clear. Having a special section for homework questions isn't the solution. It may be the case that a question is a PSQ and it isn't homework.
