@MonicaCellio yes, as far as I can see, either accepted answer or question should be tweaked. Thing is, the answer refers term "Agony Aunt", which is now not present in the question. That may look confusing for readers, so we better "sync" it somehow. I feel like it would be better to re-insert a mild reference to agony aunt in there, but I haven't yet made my mind, maybe an edit to the answer could be better. Need some time to figure it out

@gnat Yeh, it does sort of change the question enough to invalidate part of the answers. I'll probably just edit out references to Agony Aunt because I'm not sure I can see a way to keep it without it being polarizing.
My advice to people is to either add contexts to links they're referencing in contexts, like "Hey user, on our site, we try to steer away from discussion-oriented posts and look for ones that have a clear question. While I believe this may need to be put on hold, you may be able to edit it to make it more objective and more clear as to what your question is. See <insert link> for context."
That sounds a lot less passive aggressive than just posting nothing but a link.
Especially when that link uses words that new folks may not understand and may have an adverse reaction to....

Hello user3416398, on our network, it's best to tailor your questions to different sites or avoid cross-posting them. We see you asked the same question here: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/236317/…. This spreads answers across different sites and makes it hard for future visitors to find all of them. I'm removing this post. See the one on Programmers SE from this point forward. Good luck! — jmort253 ♦ 10 secs ago
