We follow a ritual about requiring quoting scriptures when answering, with answers getting deleted due to lack of citation. This is to prevent personal opinions which don't have scriptural backing. That's fine.
What about questions which refer to scripture?
For instance, none of us have personally met Rama or Krishna. All we know about them are through scriptures. If a book, say Ramayana, has two sentences - 'Rama was born. Rama followed dharma.', now there are 3 possibilities of belief:
I don't believe this book at all (rational / scientific / atheist / anti-traditional / secular / pro-non-hindu)
I believe this book completely (faith / religious / theist / traditional / pro-hindu)
The whole book ? Maybe not. Some parts of it ? Yeah. (faith plus rational / neutral)
Suppose a question is of the format :
Even according to Ramayana, Rama didn't follow Dharma. Right ?
This question attributes a certain characteristic to Ramayana which is actually the OP's opinion, and in addition, doesn't back it up with quotation. The standard which we follow for answers is 'cite scriptures to avoid personal opinion', or at least separate scriptural verses from our commentary/opinion by block-quotes. If we follow the same standard for questions, the question would look like :
In Ramayana, it says:
"Rama was born. Rama followed Dharma"'
I don't believe the second sentence. Rama didn't follow Dharma, right?
to which great acharyas have already replied:
'How do you know Rama was born ? Did you see him? If not, where did you read that he was born? In Ramayana ? So you're willing to believe some book even though you haven't seen him directly ? If so, why are you not willing to believe another sentence in the same book ? Does the other sentence not 'sit-well' with you? You can read some more sentences in the same book to get clarity.
A LOT of questions and answers, on any religious site, especially one as diverse as hinduism, is bound to have opinions. Even scriptures have differing opinions ! So it is absolute necessary to clearly delineate what is scripture and what is opinion, whether it is in the question or the answer.
Now, the question is, who should do this delineation ? Obviously we can't expect all users to do so, since they're new, they're learning etc. But are other power-users / mods allowed to edit such questions as they see fit ?
For example, in this question, the OP claims
As mentioned in another post, Vishnu's human avataras don't seem to age beyond young adulthood.
Neither is the source posted, nor is the statement true.
In another, same OP claims:
A lady in a YouTube video says..
Again, these may be fine for new / innocent users, but not for those with 4k+ reputation with a hint of an agenda / history of creating animus.
If such questions are allowed without bar, then in future, I'm going to start posting questions like :
'There is a claim that Krishna killed Kamsa to take revenge for killing his 6 brothers. Shouldn't Krishna learn to forgive and forget ?'
'They say we should give great importance when naming a child in Hinduism. I also read somewhere that Rama killed Vali because he didn't like monkeys named Vali. Does name really matter in Hinduism ?'
