In the question, Can I empty a soul gem?, the OP has mentioned that he is using Xbox 360. I take this to also mean that he's not looking for PC-only console commands or mod solutions, so I edited in the xbox-360 tag, and answered a solution that does not mention mods or console commands.
However, user kotekzot mentioned that it is not an Xbox 360 specific issue, and "There is no reason to exclude PC or PS3 solutions just because the askers happens to be using a 360 - if he was the only one to ever need help with the problem the question would be closed as too localized" and "Unless this problem can only occur on 360, it shouldn't be tagged [xbox-360]", so he removed the xbox-360 tag.
I then amended my answer to the question to also include PC mod solutions, as I understand the question to now apply to versions of Skyrim in all platforms.
Question 1: If the OP has mentioned that he is using Xbox 360 and/or PS3, and is not looking for PC console commands or mods, is it still acceptable to answer it with console commands and mod solutions for the PC?
I see an issue regarding the questions: Cannot Get a new Radiant Quest from Companions in Skyrim (where OP has mentioned he is using Xbox 360 and does not want console command answers), and Companions will no longer give me radiant quests (where OP has mentioned that she is using the PC, where I reckon console command and/or mod answers are welcome).
If the guideline in the Can I empty a soul gem? question is followed ("unless the issue can only occur on <platform>, it shouldn't be tagged <specific platform tag>"), the second question above should be closed as an exact duplicate of the first question (without the platforms, they're talking about the same thing). But since the first question's OP mentioned he does not want a console command answer, it is possible that this might not help the OP of the second question, who is playing on the PC.
The two questions about the Companions radiant quest above interest me as I also have the same question and would like to give a bounty to the PC-related question, if it isn't closed as an exact duplicate.
Question 2: What should be done in this situation?
