I have seen a question in Ask Ubuntu :Some Bash questions for a newbie

Here that question is a BASH script which is too long and with many queries were posted by the OP.

here my point is , according to AU rules one question per one post.

But OP asking too many & all the questions about the same question/post only.

do we have to suggest him that maintain one question per one post or keep it like that ?

    I see that questions 2-4 are about general programming language and are not strict Ubuntu exclusive. I would close it for being too broad.

"Some bash questions for a newbie" isn't a question. :)

I would ask them to trim it down to be "How do I indent code in gedit?" which is the only part that is salvageable here, the rest can go on stackoverflow.

That title is a mess, I don't get how it got 2 upvotes and no one fixed it. Here's a quick search of questions with question in the title that can be fixed up if someone's looking for a nice low hanging fruit:

  • Vote: To be honest I gave one up vote.

  • The question content is fine, it just needs to be fixed to make sense. Oct 10, 2013 at 16:06
