Android questions on superuser are getting closed as "not computer related". Examples:
Lots more on http://superuser.com/questions/tagged/android, almost all of them are closed as "not computer related".
The FAQ states: "Super User [...] is not about [...] cellphones or mobile devices, except smartphones such as iPhone that interface with your computer"
- Android per se is just a platform, an operating system. It's not a device.
- Android runs on lots of devices, including netbooks and even standard x86 architectures (any PC). Android is fundamentally different from iPhone because of this, so the same criteria for superuser questions cannot be applied.
- Android devices do interface with other computers (via TCP/IP, HTTP, IMAP, and any standard protocol) just like any other computer, because they are computers.
Let's pick one of the closed questions: http://superuser.com/questions/116960/htc-android-mail-imap-folders-not-synchronous-closed . How is this different from a question about Thunderbird or Outlook?
Another: http://superuser.com/questions/115514/on-demand-rtsp-to-android-closed . How is it different from a question about any RTSP client/server on a PC or MAC ?

I think either the FAQ has to be revised to be more clear about this, or the moderators need to be moderated.
