I recently posted a question closely related to (but not identical to) this one. I promise not to continue posting variants.

That said: I have just voted to close this question as "unclear what you're asking", because it's entirely unclear what the OP is asking.

However, in casting that vote, I am also automatically inviting this poster to "please clarify your specific problem or add additional details". I do not actually want this poster to clarify the problem or add additional details, and I wish I could cast this close vote, for this reason, without having to issue that invitation. Ought the phrase "Unclear what you're asking", unadorned, be made available as a reason for closing?

  • $\begingroup$ I feel the latter portion of my answer to your previous question would apply equally well here. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Subjective viewpoint: most people who post weird questions like that tend not to come back and adjust it for reopening. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think it ended up being closed with the right choice -- not mainstream physics -- and I wouldn't have used the "unclear what you're asking" vote. I reserve unclear for "improvements could be made to make this okay" and "not mainstream" for things spouting utter gibberish, like that one. $\endgroup$
