I posted a question on this site called Is it actually useful to ration food?. Some have commented saying that it is off topic for this site, and as of writing this, it has four close votes.
When I posted the question I was interested in the biological/nutritive perspective, so arguably I should have posted it on another site. However, the question does not call out that that's in the fact the perspective I'm interested in, and people interpreted it in an OutdoorsSE context.
It has gotten a lot of attention since it was posted two days ago (30 upvotes, 5 favorites, ~9000 views, and 5 answers), which tells me that the users of OutdoorsSE are interested in the topic and have something to say about it.
Some of the answers talk about morale, comfort, accountability and such, and though admittedly those were not the types of points I was looking for when I posted the question, they are perfectly fair points that answer my question in the OutdoorsSE context.
After seeing several comments talking about closing the question, I cross-posted it to HealthSE. I prefaced it with:
I posted this question on the Outdoors SE site. There were some good points regarding morale and such, but I'm curious about this question from a purely biological/nutritive perspective.
In my view, the question is on topic in both places and will garner answers from different perspectives. Let's discuss.
