The following post What topologies are largely unexplored in machine learning? asks more than $6$ questions, which are quite unrelated to each other. Shouldn't this type of posts be closed as too broad?

According to One post with multiple questions or multiple posts?, the suggestion is to ask one question per post (especially, if the questions are quite unrelated), which I completely agree with.

See also Flagging post that has multiple questions? and https://meta.stackoverflow.com/q/267058/3924118. They all state that posts with multiple questions should be closed as too broad.

I've already flagged the question above as too broad, but my vote was rejected (so my only way of contributing to this community is to downvote such a question, which, IMHO, would anyway deserve a downvote, because of the lack of focus and simplicity).

Is it possible to know why moderators haven't closed this question as too broad?

A few other questions that should all be closed as too broad:

All of these questions (which I have read) should be closed as too broad (given that they ask more than one unrelated question).

If this community wants to attract more people, it also needs good questions and answers, that are compliant with "standards of quality" of SE websites.

  • $\begingroup$ My sense is that the questions in the list that remain open are within the range of acceptability in the broader context of the stack. (Many of them deal with philosophy, theory, or social impacts.) On the "4 steps of Monte Carlo Tree search" I'm personally inclined to agree with the OP that they are related, and form a single overall question. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Nov 27 '19 at 21:03
  • $\begingroup$ @DukeZhou Read https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/39224/287113. Even if they are related, he's asking at least 7 questions, if I counted correctly. $\endgroup$ – nbro Nov 27 '19 at 22:30
