Having been a casual user of this site for some time, I have noticed some patterns. Purely off of my own experience I will say that the preferred form of question seems to be scoping to a particular denomination.
From the outside looking in, this is particularly convenient for Catholicism, because they have a clearly defined authority structure, and a plethora of citable sources. Many an obscure and strange question scoped to Catholicism are deemed appropriate, while less obscure and more relevant (my opinion) questions from a non denominational perspective are tossed into the nether, and have a hard time ever coming back from being put on hold.
Not to rail against the Catholics, I don't believe this is being done intentionally, it's just the natural playing out of the rules.
My question is, what if anything can be done for questions which are asked from a non-denominational perspective?
---------- fun fact --------------- according to http://hirr.hartsem.edu/cong/nondenominational-churches-national-profile-2010.html If non denominational were a proper denomination, it would be the third largest in the US, behind Catholic, and Baptist.
