I think you started to think of this after seeing this question.
Confession: The OP had not included the mathematics-education tag. I retagged it so, since it seemed it was a problem with him learning things. I did it based on the same line of reasoning when I tagged my very first question here. To quote myself, "I asked it in mathematics education. What else do you ask in mathematics education, if not problems faced by students?".
I am not trying to defend myself, and your point is valid. But I must confess that I am the responsible party in this instance, not the original poster.
The outcome of the meta discussion on my original question was that the question was borderline. And the poster of this new question you refer to, referred to mine for similarities.
So I suppose, mine was taken while it was borderline, and moreover I was too ignorant about the site then, and this newcomer's question was stopped because this was already decided then, as a result of the discussion on my question?
Actually, I think the mathematics-education tag is more appropriate when it concerns issues of interest to us as teachers. The other end of that is the students' viewpoint, which is quite different and leads to different questions. Maybe a tag like learning-mathematics would have been more appropriate for the question mentioned above.
learning-mathematics <===> mathematics-learning <===> mathematics-education.
What's the difference?
I can see hanche's point. "I want to learn" and "I want to educate" are opposite actions and really should have opposite tags.
