It is the obvious thing to flag a question like:
What is the meaning of "white"?
as being off-topic (answer to be found in a dictionary).
What about questions like the following:
#How to use "until" grammatically correct Which one is grammatically correct ?
- I waited there until he had come.
- I waited there until he came.
What's the rule?
The answer can be found in any grammar book. I flagged myself several of these questions, nothing seems to happen as a result.
Therefore I became curious: what is the recommended handling of these questions? What is supposed to happen? I admit that I might have the wrong understanding.
Note: I encountered "countless" questions with this pattern, some of them not even asking for rules.
Note: I searched on ELL and ELL Meta and I did not find something similar.
Many (most?) of them follow the same pattern of a quiz, and I cannot notice any improvement in the quality of the questions (actually, I do not even notice an effort to improve). Am I wrong in my assessment?
