This is in reference to a question I recently posted, Which dialects of English are easiest for learners? which was deemed not constructive.
I respect the decision that this question is too broad to be answered objectively as it is, I agree that there are many factors to consider before even beginning to form an answer, especially since potential answers are largely dependent on the learner as well. However, I have had multiple students ask me this recently, and I believe many English learners face the question of which dialect to learn (though typically limited to SAE, SBE, or the regional dialect), which is why I thought it would be a good addition to the site.
I therefore intend to break it down and focus it into a series of smaller questions, hopefully more objectively answerable, which can then be compiled into a CW at a later date.
Is this an acceptable plan of attack for this specific question? Or the question something which is entirely unwanted on ELL.SE?
And lastly, for the sake of generality and posterity, is it typically acceptable to break down broad questions into a series of related focused questions? (not about my question, just a general rule of thumb)
After looking at it some more, I came to the conclusion that although it is possible to do a breakdown into objective components, to do so be more along the lines of a dissertation. And I unfortunately don't have the time required to undertake the project. So my thanks to everyone who gave feedback, maybe someday I'll have a dissertation on the topic...
