Kali is hard? Kali isn't that hard as people may tell you. Let me share my story with this distro. I am not a full-time penetration tester nor do any kind of cybersecurity job but am rather a bug hunter and have used kali for more than two years having installed it many times. I also installed Debian 11 (bullseye) and Ubuntu, later on, to see what's better. &...

is that users looking (e.g.) for awk-based solutions will have a harder time finding this question and related answers I have to challenge this because is a common yet misguided argument. If people search for awk based solution, they would include that in their search keywords and any useful search engine would scan the entire page and index all the content....

Should tool-specific tags be used on questions that do not explicitly ask for how to do this with a specific tool, or that do not describe problems arising from the (incorrect) use of a specific tool to perform the described text-processing task? No, because that would warrant putting all text-processing-tool-related tags onto such question, defeating the ...

I would suggest that unpinning is the better behaviour. Two situations come to mind: When a question is answered by a quick&dirty solution, that may work for the OP, and may therefore be accepted. If a more robust, less error prone or just more elegant solution is posted later, that will (probably) be upvoted, pushing the inferior, but accepted, solution ...

I think it would be best to have accepted answers unpinned on U&L. I see no reason to treat accepted answers specially.

I use a Community Wiki when someone has answered their own question but not created an answer. Sometimes the original asker treats StackExchange like a forum and updates their question to provide their answer, and despite prompts for them to create their own answer and not leave the answer in the question, nothing is forthcoming. Occasionally it's a ...

Your question asks, "Isn't Fedora's DNF a failure?". A quote from What types of questions should I avoid asking?: To prevent your question from being flagged and possibly removed, avoid asking subjective questions where … [...] your question is just a rant in disguise: “______ sucks, am I right?” Your question is a rant in disguise.

I think that Answers-in-comments are not a good use-case for a community-wiki Answer. I would give the commenter an opportunity to answer on their own, perhaps by asking them directly to answer; if they decline or don't respond within a reasonable period of time (24 hours?), then please feel free to create your own Answer. Take the feeling of goodwill and ...

We already have format-specific tags such as yaml and json, so I think it would make sense to create toml. One advantage I see to having a format-specific tag, rather than a generic tag for all structured document formats, is that it will separate the format-specific tools as well. Instead of having a lengthy catalog of formats and tools in a generic tag ...
