"Pardon me," said the protruding nail to the hammer above.
While I understand (and agree with) the discouraging of posting a question on more than one Stack Exchange site, why is it frowned upon by some to post a question here and on the ESRI support forums?
Is there a rule, unwritten or otherwise, that requests and requires that any question posted here not be found on any other forum regardless of how closely tied it is with Stack Exchange?
I have seen posts and comments that finger-wag at a user for having a question on both GIS SE and the Esri support forums. In my mind, these two entities are far enough apart that it is right and proper to expect useful (and perhaps different) information to arise from asking in both locations.
On that note, is it also considered bad form to simply link to another answer on a non Stack Exchange site?
It seems that having all the answers here, whether they appear elsewhere or not, is the ultimate goal of a Q&A website.
If my logic is flawed and wayward, please guide me back!
