With a long weekend between my curt reply and coming back to the topic, I think the better approach would've been to consider the node for unapproval instead of just unapproving the node myself.
I think that the other off-topic posts are still approved because nobody unapproved them or discussed them. I approved (OT) Listing / Inquiring on MQ Cluster Queues becuase I thought that some interesting discussion of the API of MQSeries and its API/use might follow, which I consider in Perl-land. I don't see how asking a question about gcc can lead back to Perl, which is why that question does not belong in any section on this site IMO. Again, I think I shouldn't have unapproved it directly, but waited for the voting.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
