It is not about "related", it is about "specific". Easy example is JS/CSS questions which can be asked about any other platform. More complex is theme/plugins questions. If it is possible to give a generic wordpress answer it is cool, but if the question is specific to that theme or plugin than it is not specific to wordpress, but specific to the theme/...

I wasn't involved in those, but I did write the answer that was commented on. I believe that some of those comments add to the answer, and that by removing the previous comments, context is lost. I've found many a useful thing in the comments on stackoverflow attached to an answer, and clarifying comments are sometimes lifesavers. Sure a good comment can be ...

We can customize only the first three messages, and there is a character limit. That's why they are so broad. See our public discussion in the chat about that. Yes, they should be better. The third one is bad because it has too many links. On mobile, it is very hard to select that close reason without touching a link. Note that off topic from the first ...

Flag one of the user’s posts, use the custom flag reason to explain the problem. In case of spam accounts, flagging the spam content once is enough. We will see those flags and destroy the account anyway. I just did that.

I had a look at this and was on the fence whether it should be moved or not. Ultimately, I left it be as it had to do with the WordPress user login. While at a glance it does look like generic HTAccess configuration, after reading the question it is specifically aimed at HTAcess for WordPress accounts + whitelisted IPs. I don't think you're necessarily ...

I don't believe it's spam, but it is a link answer. Link answers are problematic but for other reasons. Answers need to be self contained, and linking offsite or recommending something without explanation usually leads to bitrot or difficult to understand answers. Having said that, it's a useful tool, but the poster didn't explain much about what it did or ...

It looked like a beginner's mistake to me at the first glance. Later I invested this a bit more, decided it was indeed spam, deleted the posts and the account. Sorry for the mixed signals. Background is that we get many invalid spam flags, some people flag every post with a link to the author's site as spam, even if the linked resource is actually ...
