We usually agree that idea generation questions should be avoided, as per here. However I had the feeling that we used to have a more explicit statement about it in the help section.... but I can't seem to find it anymore.
Was it removed? Is so, why? Is my impression wrong and there never was such notice? If so, why shouldn't we?
Idea generation is a common reason for closing down questions, and a typical mistake made here. Shouldn't we dedicate a few lines in the help?
