Having been on the edge of asking one of these questions - my answer is "I don't think so." I am starting my career in IS - and though many of you may have been here for a long time, I want to remind you these are all individuals who probably don't have mentors or know people who have been in IS. I, personally, have no mentor - and these people are probably 20-somethings who are looking for validation of going into this field and trying to get a re-assuring push.
That said, understanding aside - these requests or posts don't make good questions. The path is one an individual must take - no one here can tell me why I should look at moving into compliance more than AppSec, etc. There are far too many answers to give.
A good question for [career] would usually turn into a different question - for instance, I might ask: "I am learning Pen Test Scripts in the Windows environment - should I spend my time in Python, or PowerShell, or something else?" Would this still be considered a [career] question? It seems to me, this would be rather broad Pen-Test/scripting/Windows rather than [career].
Even questions regarding certification guidance usually aren't that great - "Do I get the Security+ first or SSCP?" are already answer - and can be found with easy google searches - I know because I had the same questions.
In this light - I think [career] will continue this trend. I don't think that the close rate is too high - I think it is appropriate.
