Lately, a perspective regarding the effort put into rules questions (eg, lack of research) and how to handle these questions have come into question.
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the asker gives no indication of performing basic checks on whether any rules apply, and adequate official resources are easily available that do so, to far greater depth than is possible on SE. Follow-up questions after reading the laws are preferable.
There is a valid counterpoint about allowing these questions based on previous, allowed, and well-received questions.
Nonetheless, this still received more than one close vote under the guise of "lack of research."
However, with this question, Ball goes through the strike zone, but the catcher doesn't catch the ball?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is too easy to look up and OP did no research.
That's not a valid reason to close; a vote to close should not be used as a "super downvote".
I vote to close because it is possible to find the answer with a very simple search on the web
Although the question is not closed, it was still received favorably with no rebuttal.
Thus, in two scenarios, lack of research is an appropriate reason to close and in the other scenario, lack of research is not an appropriate reason to close.
