in reply to Auto answer to "Where should I post X?"

What problem would this address? For the most part, the section names themselves do a pretty good job of communicating the appropriate location for various content. In the relatively rare cases where content is placed in an inappropriate section, the moderation system does a good job of flagging those posts and the editors do a great job cleaning them up.

Update: Besides, how about just asking the question in the CB? It's generally monitored by several "expert systems" that are very good at interpreting natural language questions and responding with reasonable answers. ;-)

    I agree completly. Most posts are very straight forward in where they belong. If a post is that close to the borderline, that you can't tell where is should go, then in most cases it probably won't matter in which of the sections it is posted, and if it does then the editors will fix it.
