I was going to close a question for "General Reference" today but... The option is not there, why?
We have it on the EL&U and it says this:
This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.
My proposal is to add it. Now, basic questions can be useful, but too basic questions such as "How do you read this hiragana syllable?" can be easily looked through any search engine.
