I might be wrong, but I have got the impression on MS users are divided in two main cults:
One side stricly against any type of "Economic" questions like this one: Who creates money? Central banks or commercial banks?
and another side quite against "Day by day money chores" questions, like this one: https://money.stackexchange.com/questions/15505/can-i-save-money-by-making-my-own-clothes
I'm not a moderator, or a big contributor to this community, but don't you think time is come to clarify once for all what type of questions could be asked here?
Don't you think it's realy unfair to all users (which means ourselvs) not to clarify this once for all?! Users take time to answer to questions, and then they get frustrated by seeing them getting closed.
See for instance the answers at the 1st question by Muro and KeythS. It definietly took time for Muro and KeythS to think about answers and write them down, isn't it frustrating to see it closed then?
My personal POV for a possible solution is to simply accept each other cult and allow both.
In this community there could be people more interested in economy and other more interested in day by day money chores. I don't see how one subject could badly affect the other, as long as there are users willing to answer both type of questions, and it seems there are!!!
Talking about both Economy and Money chores simply expands a bit the interests in this community.
At the end of the day aren't both Economy and Money chores "Personal finance and Money"?!
Couldn't then both these type of questions just live in this community one next to the other?!
Disclosure: both questions used above as examples were not posted by me, nor answered by me, so I have no interest in having them being re-opened or kept closed.
