Do you think the following question would be a suitable question on CS.SE? Do you think it should be migrated to here?

I've already stated my position on migrations from CSTheory.SE to CS.SE. I think the CSTheory community and moderators are competent to make this decision. If it's a reasonable-looking computer science question whose fault on CSTheory.SE is only that it isn't research-level enough or that it isn't theoretical enough, go ahead and migrate. (But remember that programming questions go on SO.)

Go ahead and migrate responsibly. If we don't like a question, we'll close it and reject the migration.

I personally do not intend to monitor this thread.

    $\begingroup$ @Kaveh It doesn't matter if there's a duplicate question. Migrate, and leave the duplicate search to the CS.SE community. On the monitoring thing… your way requires you to monitor the responses here, it's self-imposed work. I don't relish having to check back on the response on meta.cstheory myself. $\endgroup$ – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 28 '13 at 13:07
  • $\begingroup$ Some of the complaints about previous migrations that I got were about what I wrote above (this is explicitly stated in D.W.'s question). That is why I am asking as Raphael wrote (I don't see much difference between asking on meta in place of chat, it is just simpler for me to ask on meta). I can check later to see if people think the question is suitable for migration and then migrate it if it is so. $\endgroup$ – Kaveh Nov 29 '13 at 0:48

    $\begingroup$ @Kaveh: Gilles' proposal gives a clear answer for the question we talk about here: it's a valid CS question and includes some own thoughts. Therefore, it's (likely to be) fine for Computer Science, so no reason not to migrate. I never understood your reaction to the earlier discussion (to not migrate at all); frankly, I thought you were overreacting. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Nov 29 '13 at 21:43
  • $\begingroup$ @Raphael, I understand Gilles' answer. But from my perspective I see that there is a general and strong opposition to the way that I was migrating questions to here, obviously I don't want to continue that when it is creating so much negative reaction. Why make so many users here and there unhappy by continuing those migrations? On the other hand I don't think I have time to migrate questions following what people seem to expect by checking the criteria myself. That is why I am asking. As I said I don't think it is much different from asking in the chat. It is just simpler for me. $\endgroup$ – Kaveh Nov 29 '13 at 22:05

    $\begingroup$ Seems like a good one for migration to me! $\endgroup$ – D.W. Dec 23 '13 at 19:04
