Why was this question on Windows documentation closed? It is based on an actual problem I faced, it is answerable and it is about software. The reason given to close it, being outside the scope defined in the faq just does not hold. Why did nobody of those who voted to close it leave a comment?

    the question seems more like is there a website for documentation than anything – Sathyajith Bhat Mar 28 '11 at 13:35
  • They should mention this in the faq: Never let your post appear it has anything to do with websites. Maybe one should always add a disclaimer like "This post is not related to websites. If you're interested in what it is actually related to, please read the post." – artistoex Mar 29 '11 at 8:26
  • and it is not about … websites or web services - says the FAQ – Sathyajith Bhat Mar 29 '11 at 8:36
  • I've even explicitly asked for command line accessible documentation. It is clearly not a question about websites. ... If you're interested in what it is actually related to, please read the post. – artistoex Mar 29 '11 at 8:37
  • @Sathya Yes it says posts mustn't be related to websites or web services. But it does not say posts also mustn't appear to be so. (Note the difference between appearing and actually being.) – artistoex Mar 29 '11 at 8:43

I've reopened the question. As I commented, I recall the post being more of a question of which websites I can get the documentation from. That seems to be an incorrect assumption, and some of the community members seem to agree with the same.
