We sometimes get what I would describe as "wrong" questions.
For instance, a perennial favorite seems to be questions about binning continuous variables, like What is a best way of binning non-finite continuous variable?, which currently has zero votes, zero answers and a comment (by me) recommending not to bin the data at all - with seven upvotes. Or discretization to create intervals for continuous variables, where I copy-pasted the exact same comment.
What should we do about these?
- Leave them open?
- Find some reasonable existing question we could close these as duplicates of (for the two questions above, this could be What is the benefit of breaking up a continuous predictor variable?), even if it is not a duplicate in the strong sense?
- Write an answer that essentially explains why the question itself is mistaken, even if such an answer does not answer the question?
- Implement yet another closure reason (I believe that we are already at the limit of the number of closure reasons the UI will support)?
