The question What does this Pablo Neruda quote mean? was recently closed by two users including site moderator Hamlet, who said in a comment:
Hi. I'm afraid that this question can't be answered with any certainty unless we get more information about the quote. For example, it would be helpful to know what book/poem/whatever the quote came from. I've closed the question, but will reopen when more information is added.
He seems to believe that the question should be closed because the OP hasn't provided context or a specific source for the quote they're asking about. Now I couldn't find any context for the quote either, after searching for it online, but I assume that an expert on Pablo Neruda's poetry would either recognise the quote and know where it came from or be able to locate it easily.
Consider if the question had instead been about Shakespeare's "to be or not to be" quote. If anyone had been unsure about the exact source or context of this line, somebody could easily have edited in a play/act/scene/line reference - the quote is easy to find by Googling. Essentially, by closing the Neruda question but not this hypothetical Shakespeare one, we're discriminating against obscure works, which is against the spirit of the topic challenges and the site as a whole.
Again, someone familiar with Neruda's work would easily be able to locate the quote in context and probably answer the question, even though a random internet user who'd never heard of Neruda and doesn't speak Spanish (such as myself) couldn't find it. Without more context included in the question, most of this site's users will find it hard to answer, but a Neruda expert wouldn't.
Should we be closing questions because they're only answerable by experts and require good knowledge of the subject in order to be properly understood?
