A question of mine just got VTCed with the explanation including a quote from a famous FAQ by Eric S. Raymond "How to Ask Questions The Smart Way":
from How to Ask Questions The Smart Way: "If you are trying to find out how to do something [...], begin by describing the goal. Only then describe the particular step towards it that you are blocked on."
Is that specific quote applicable to SFF and should not adhering to the quote's advice be grounds for labeling the question bad (downvoted or voted to close)?
I'm only asking about the quote, not the FAQ overall.
