:)) That's more like it...

comment English Language & Usage: Please help me to write an official meeting invitation email.
I have to follow-up on that comment. This question is actually too similar with the other one, it should be "not a good example"-voted into oblivion. We shouldn't have 2 questions that similar in our top 5.

@Pete - Google proved to be not exact enough on this particular example :)

comment English Language & Usage: Does anyone want to be my pen pal so I can improve my English?
...just because I thought I could come up with a better off-topic example :)

We have a deficit of good off-topic questions...

comment English Language & Usage: How should I reply when someone(Meet first time) tells me “Nice to meet you”?
This is one poorly written question.

comment Mathematics: How can I calculate the shortest distance between 2 cities, having their latitude & longitude?
@derobert - As I said, it would consider the Earth's almost-spherical shape, but the purpose would be like calculating what's the distance when going by plane, or by ship (I've seen the need in real life), so it doesn't have to necessarily need GIS.

comment English Language & Usage: Were Shakespeare's plays really written by Francis Bacon?
@Robert - I totally get what you're saying, and I might be wrong, but this question for me says: "Is talking about English literature on-topic?" - which is a good one in defining the site.

This is kind of similar to your other question, "I have composed following email. Please help to check grammer or other issues." - area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/1269/…. Some diversity always helps.

@ire - That's why it's a good off-topic question, IMO.

comment Mathematics: Can someone solve [2x^2 + 3x + 2 = 0] for me?
@sixtyfootersdude - I tried to make it as clearly off-topic as I could, but there is so much you can do with the title only... Do you have any idea how a question could sound more blatantly-homeworkish? For me, "Ca someone solve [soemthing] for me?" sounds blatant enough...

comment Mathematics: How do I create a mathematical formula containing [special construct] in Word?
Of course, this question though is not directly about mathematics and I don't think the Math site should allow questions asking how to use math software programs, as equation editors and such.

comment Parenting
@Juan - Yes, of course, but moms4mom is a SE 1.0 site that actually works, people getting fast and good answers and so forth. People who want to ask parenting questions NOW can already use that.

comment Mathematics: How do I find the determinant of a matrix in Matlab?
IMO, this isn't directly about Math, but about using a program (Matlab), so I guess it's off-topic.

comment Mathematics: How do I calculate my key word in numerology?
:) Well, excuse my ignorance, I actually didn't know what Numerology meant. From Wiki: "Numerology and numerological divination by systems such as isopsephy were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics by modern scientists."
