It has been suggested that we close 'true beginner questions' as off-topic on this site.
Where do we draw the line? For example, should this question be closed (I've voted to close it as off-topic, but want to know what others think about the general principle)
So the question has been refined to be: How do we know a question is too basic? Where are we drawing the line?
What are the key characteristics of "too basic"?
