While traversing the site, I had, on numerous occasions, an urge to share an idea, or to ask a short question that's not worth enough to make a separate post out of it. I know this is what meta is supposed to be used for, but I feel bad for polluting the main stream. Most of the time I need a comment or two to figure out whether it's stupid, or an idea people like. Hence, the suggestion:
Should we have a post here on meta for sharing of short ideas, requests for clarification or just some observations?
The answers should be itself formulated as questions, and people would express opinion in the comments. If a person gets a satisfying answer (regardless good or bad), he could just delete the post and take further action (e.g. write a proper question, or forget about the whole thing).
A good rule of thumb would be that if it's more than a few sentences long, or the answer you're expecting could be, it's probably better to make an ordinary question out of it.
