This question Using brand logos for polls on my website?
has generated several comments concerning the appropriateness of the question for this site.
I went ahead and answered the question, but perhaps meta is a better place to discuss the best way to handle the question.
While I felt the question was extremely naive, and something which virtually any experienced website operator in the US would already know, none the less I took it to be a sincere question. If I had to guess, it is perhaps from a non-native English speaker in a foreign country. Further since he has a reputation of one, presumably this is his first question.
Clearly he could have done a much better job of asking the question, particularly by breaking it down into multiple questions, each of which involved a single topic calling for a simple answer. He really had 3 different questions rolled into 1 which is not good.
What is the best way to handle a question like this?
