This question already has an answer here:
In many discussions when whether or not to close a question comes up on The Bridge, and even here on meta, there is often a vocal group who feels that questions should be closed if they aren't about a problem the user faces.
I believe this mainly draws from this section of the /about.
However, it remains unclear in the /about whether or not the "actual problem" part means that questions not about actual problems will be closed, or if they're simply more likely to be bad questions that get down-voted (or closed for other reasons). A person could certainly ask questions about problems they don't actually face but which satisfy the "Ask about..." criteria. They could also ask questions about problems they do actually face but which fall in the "Don't ask about..." criteria.
I'm tired of seeing "this isn't an actual problem you face" thing used as an argument for closing a question while the issue remains unclear. So let's clear it up.
