Whenever we migrate a question to Stack Overflow now, the justification text is misleading the person who asked the question (and probably everyone else):

This question was migrated to Stack Overflow because it can be answered by professional and enthusiast programmers.

This is just wrong. The question was closed, because it is a programming question that is not related to WordPress.

Most of our top users are "professional and enthusiast programmers", and WordPress related programming questions are very much welcome on our site. Hence our name: WordPress Development.

I haven't seen the close reasons for migrations to other sites yet. If the message above is an indicator for the quality of those text boxes, I have to ask that we moderators can edit them.

If that is not possible for some reason, the please fix at least the text above.

    Yes. It comes across as: This question was migrated to Stack Overflow because it can be answered by professional and enthusiast programmers, as people on WPSE are essentially only aspiring developers.

    I've added the status-review tag so that we can put this in the backlog. We have a feeling this messaging may affect more than just this site.
