I don't think it's particularly useful to put this in an answer. Part of the point of stack exchange is that the questions and answers can act as a resource in the future, not just to the original ...

I thought this was a somewhat interesting question - I also thought of BB King's gurning - and as Dr M says, other facial contortions are also often seen! But this is a site for questions about how ...

The first approach to take with any question that seems to have issues is to see if it can be improved. I feel that often, a comment suggesting how the question might be edited to fit the on-topic ...

At the moment, it doesn't seem useful to me. Both questions currently tagged church-music are better served by hymnody IMO. You could call church music a genre, but then you could call "K-pop" a ...

Should we create a FAQ about Music Theory?

If people are asking duplicates, they still need to be closed, and the close-as-duplicate pattern still needs to be able to work. I'd suggest building, in meta, a list of good, well-upvoted 'does-this-...

Are questions tagged [software] off-topic?
