There are many questions which come up again and again, virtually every day, trying to propose an alternative explanation for a well-established principle. I think it would be very useful to keep a list of best-explanations for why the established principle is the established principle, for quick reference (and when marking things as duplicates). Here are some of the common issues and best responses (in my opinion). I hope that this question will open discussions about what other common duplicate questions are, and what the best answers are.

  • $\begingroup$ @Danu how about continuing what's set in motion here? :) $\endgroup$ Nov 7 '15 at 21:03
  • $\begingroup$ There's no question here, and nothing to answer - even considering the relaxed standards by which we handle questions on meta, I don't think this works as written. But rather than close it as unclear or opinion-based, I'll mark it as a duplicate so it can serve as a signpost to the original proposal. $\endgroup$
