  • This is a discussion because the user that created it chose it to be a discussion. The moderators of the forum can simply change the type to question at their discretion.

  • Although the situation is improved over when the selection of Question or Discussion was a drop-down, there are still far too many folks selecting Discussion in error. I would say that the vast majority of "Discussion" threads in fact are due to user error.

    There is something wrong with an interface where a rarely needed feature is given equal billing with the normal usage, and hence is often used incorrectly. Personally, I would favor getting rid of Discussion altogether.
