It seems there are the beginnings of an edit war going on with how can counting the number of cracks in glass tell you about the speed of imact?.
Now the question has a few problems:
- It doesn't stand particularly well on its own, requiring reading an external link for background.
- It doesn't discuss the question in such a way as to guide answers to the desired level of detail.
- It is partially phrased in the imperative, rather than the interrogative.
However, as far as I can tell, it has nothing to do with homework, either in actuality or conceptually. Someone was reading a scientific news article and had a question about the physics behind a phenomenon. It certainly doesn't sound like someone wants a particular problem solved - I read it as asking for the concepts behind some claim.
So why was this tagged as homework? Is the new policy to use homework to filter out questions certain users don't particularly like?
