Why does the General section have its name?

Asked by Mimishu1995 (14775points) May 1st, 2014

AKA why is that section called: “General” and not any other names?

Now that we have social section and meta section, I think the better name for it should be “Serious section”. The general section has such a strict guideline that the name “general” doesn’t seem to suit it.

I agree, general doesn’t suit it.

Personally, i’d rename the three sections…

Here’s my suggestion:

“General” does not refer to the categories questions, but to the rank of the Mods who come down like a ton of bricks on anyone straying from the topic.

What @marinelife said. I think General works just fine. There was a time when there were no sections at all.

general: holding superior rank or taking precedence over others similarly titled
