I see a few questions which demand answer only from the BORI Critical Edition of Mahabharata (MBH). Now if someone has studied the popular, not critically edited version of MBH (e.g., K M Ganguli's translation available at sacred-texts.com) but they aren't sure what's included in the BORI CE or not, should they waste their time in just figuring out if a particular story is present in BORI CE or not?
IMO, if the ask is from a particular version, then the answer should be posted as per that version only.
should he waste his/her time in just figuring out if that particular part present in BORI or not?
Totally upto the user, if they can invest some time to read the asked version, they can do or else some other user who already has studied the version, will post the answer.
Should they waste their time in figuring out if a particular story is present in BORI CE or not?
No they shouldn't. We have to remember that this is a Q & A site. If OP is already aware of the popular version of the story from MBH but sees some discrepancies in it and wants to know how the CE team dealt with them, why do you want waste your energy telling them what they already know?
If you don't like BORI CE for some reason it's really easy to walk away from such questions. Downvote if you don't like them. But we shouldn't be trying to close such questions as has been done with Is the Virata war an interpolation according to BORI scholars?
Also, suggest you read the post Closing Questions That Raise Issues You Disagree With from Parenting Meta. When it comes to answering any question on any SE site, it's best to put yourself in OP's shoes, then proceed to answer. If you cannot do that, it's best to leave it to those who are willing to do it.
