An example is this: When should I use an em-dash, an en-dash, and a hyphen?

There is no such question on ELL and is only on EL&U, but I am assuming it is not allowed to post this on ELL. Am I right?

Cross-posting is generally frowned upon, though some new users obviously don't know it and ask a question in two places, hoping to get an answer quicker. But I fail to see any benefit in re-posting a well-established EL&U question here.

Note that it's certainly possible to tailor one question to two different audiences, e.g. English linguists and English learners. Whether that's useful in this particular case, I doubt it.
