I just saw the area51 proposal scams-phishing-and-malware. Dont we want questions like these on our SE?


If the question is based around either actual security measures, or business risk analysis...
AND if it's not about your grandmother getting scammed at home...
AND if it's not about "help i got phished quick what do i do"
AND if its more about "business" security -

Then, yes there is room for it here.
However, I do think its a fine line...


Well the proposed site includes non-computer related scams and seems to be focused on the end-user side of things. If the question is "how do I protect my customers from scams, phishing, and malware?" then it would still be better asked here than there.


I agree with AviD. Their proposal appears to be about protecting ones self from identity theft. We can learn from them and they can learn from us, but it looks like a different area/emphasis.
