The question How is Accio a safe spell? is closed with the following close reason:
Questions seeking scientific solutions or explanations are off-topic unless related directly to a cited work of fiction. There are several other Stack Exchange sites dedicated to answering questions on non-fictional sciences. For more information, see What is our actual policy on science questions? on meta.
Yet the question seems to squarely fit the exception for questions that are "related directly to a cited work of fiction". The question reads as follows:
Why couldn’t Newt use ‘Accio’ to retrieve all his beasts?
‘Accio’ only works on inanimate objects. While people or creatures may be indirectly moved by ‘Accio-ing’ objects that they are wearing or holding, this carries all kinds of risks because of the likelihood of injury to the person or beast attached to an object travelling at close to the speed of light.
It says that Accio-ed objects travel at close to the speed of light. Why do such objects not wipe out mankind from the face of the Earth (relativistic Kinetic Energy and air friction/ drag ju-ju)?
I know that electricity doesn't work well near magic, but it can't explain the above scenario.
This seems to clearly be a question about a work of fiction, namely Harry Potter. The question seeks to understand how certain objects in Harry Potter act contrary to how they should act according to science. That is, that according to science these objects should be destroying everything yet in the story they don't.
It does not seem to be asking for the science to be explained; it presupposes the science and asks what mechanism within the story allows science to be overridden. In fact, the questioner even suggests a potential resolution, and that resolution is a fact relating to the fictional setting rather than a scientific fact. Though the questioner rejected that resolution, it should still show that what is being sought is an explanation of Harry Potter rather then an explanation of science.
Moreover, in the two existing answers there is barely a reference to science. Both answers use information from within the stories to address the question. If the question can be answered from the books rather than from science then it is likely not a question about science.
Additionally, the user who asked the question is one of the top users of the site (by reputation), and therefore presumably aware that science questions are off-topic. This is not some new user who may have asked a science question not knowing any better; the fact that the question was posted at all should be enough to grant the benefit of the doubt unless it is very clear that it is actually a science question.
Repeated attempts to have the question reopened have failed. Can someone explain why this question remains closed when it seems to be asking about how something works in a fictional story, and the current answers address how it works in the fictional story? If not can it be reopened?
