So I happened to be browsing SO, and came across this question. As it deals more with abstract security principles and trust models than with a specific programming problem, it looked to me like a potential candidate for migration to security.SE.
That is, until I noticed the banner below the question that read:

This question came from our site for Information security professionals.
OK, so what gives? Why was this question deemed off-topic for security.SE, and why did somebody think it would be more on-topic at SO?
Admittedly, I haven't been very active here on security.SE, so it's quite possible that there's some good and well agreed-upon reason why this question was closed here that I'm simply not aware of; if that's the case, I'd be happy with a simple pointer to the relevant policy / meta discussion.
(Even then, though, I'd still question the appropriateness of SO as a migration target.)
