What is the atittude here concerning "soft" questions? I'm thinking of questions that are maybe not directly research level physics, but interesting to the community. For example, questions on career advice or how to deal with referees. On MathOverflow such questions regularly lead to discussions on whether it is appropriate or not.
Personally, I think such questions can be quite interesting and helpful, and probably this site will be more approriate than physics.SE. Then again, such questions tend can be argumentative or too much dependent on the individual (i.e., the asker is better off asking, say, a professor that (s)he knows).
Are such questions not welcome at all or is there place for decently stated questions?
