The main off topic reason (the generic one that every site has) currently reads this on this site:

This question does not appear to be about open source software, within the scope defined in the help center.

Two questions:

  1. Why does it read this in the first place? As far as I can tell, the Area 51 proposal scoped this site so that it wasn't limited to just software - so why does the OT reason say it is?

  2. Can we change it? It shouldn't mention anything about software, merely saying open source would be enough.
