About a week and a half ago I've posted a question on the Security Stack Exchange forum relative to the SMB1 protocol: SMB1 deactivation on OSX and Linux
As a long-time user of StackExchange network websites I performed due diligence to make sure that the question I was asking could not be answered by googling. However, within a day the question was put on hold, then closed as off-topic by a moderator with the reason given that the answer to that question, including a link posted in the comments was on the first page of google result.
When I tried to discuss more in depth what was going on in a chat room, I received no answer and the question was closed after that.
As of now, as far as my understanding goes, am still with a vulnerable group of systems on my hand, no pointer on how to correct them and unable to ask questions about how to correct it nor having a better idea how to ask better questions in the future.
As far as my understanding of the scope of StackExchange and StackOverflow (based among others on my reading of CodingHorror and JoelOnSoftware), this is not a normal course of events.
