Recently I requested an user as follows
If you want to post it on meta, please tell me. Else I will do it.
The post, I am asking about, is related to the scope of the site. Since I am involved in the chat and curious to know whether my question is on-topic or not, I requested the user for the information (whether the user is ready or not to post on meta).
Reason(s) for asking
To avoid duplication on meta
Curious to know, in detail, about on-topic-ness
Personally felt that the members of the community are friendly enough to ask
The user responded with the following statement
I should not be asked beforehand if I intent or not to post anything on Meta.
I was active member on other stack site. And it is normal there with almost all of the users to comment requests like above. In fact, I asked similar questions to few users in our sites also.
But I am doubting now whether to ask for such information in comments is recommended in general or not. Please guide me in this.
