On the Tour page for Security.SE it states:
Information Security Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for Information security professionals.
However, when I see questions like this Does clicking lead to DoS attack? with 10 upvotes, it doesn't strike me as the sort of question an information security professional would be asking. For a start it is a very basic question, and the OP doesn't appear to possess knowledge of how a web page actually works (i.e. the click resulting in a GET or POST made by the browser).
I wouldn't mind questions like this as I like helping people, but the fact that it has got 10 upvotes indicates that it is high quality information security question where it is clearly not. Obviously the OP may be an IT professional and wants to ask about security, but that doesn't make them an infosec professional - should the Tour page be updated to reflect this?
Another example is an answer to the above question which states
DoS is not about sending some specially prepared data that will kill your site (like exploits, ping of deaths etc.).
which is clearly wrong, but appears to have 6 votes.
Another is this answer to a different question - 25 votes for an incomplete answer.
Maybe these examples are simply anomalies - but it concerns me that these posts are the ones currently receiving the most positive attention on a site for "information security professionals".
Now is the scope for Security.SE for the average user with security issues, or is it for infosec professionals? Can we have a site that does both without the professional questions being watered down by basic ones that appear to attract the most attention.
The solution that this most reminds me of on the SE network is MathOverflow vs Mathematics.SE where they have a different site depending on the level of the question. However, this may be confusing and may result in two watered down sites if Security.SE did the same.
