A while back I asked this question: Swimming: why can I not front crawl?
It was subsequently put on hold. The rationalisation was:
"Questions on exercise and fitness unrelated to a specific, competitive sport are off-topic here, but can be asked on Physical Fitness Stack Exchange."
But swimming is a specific competitive sport.
Imagine I had asked a question about tennis technique: "why can I not hit a topspin forehand?" there would be no contention surely.
This is a direct parallel.
This rationale for putting the question on hold is illogical, contradictory.
I said as much in a comment.
Checking back weeks later, I see the question was closed. It boggles my mind that five people voted to close the question after my comment that clearly exposes a flaw in the logic.
