I've seen couple times now people asking for "confirmation" of a bug (which to top it off, it's already confirmed and reproducible) and even they provide with the links of the bug report. And this question Is it okay to ask for confirmation of a suspected bug? made me wonder "what is happening here? why people are bringing bugs to AU?". While I believe that non-workaround solution to bugs, like this one where (after edits) instead of asking how to fix the bug, asked how to just drop the buggy part of the application (is a corner case scenario, but is a recent example) could be considered on topic (again, corner case scenario), but questions about a specific bug should be considered off topic.
Our help page doesn't specify what is the policy about "already reported, or suspected bugs" (nor the close reasons) so maybe we should expand the description to include such cases. I'm in blank right now, so I can't propose a draft about what the help page should say.
