This question

Everybody wants to know what's going on with this but we should leave it to Twitter, Reddit, blogs, etc. There is very little actual Mathematics in the discussion I linked to.

(I am supposed to ask a question) Why not?

  • $\begingroup$ I guess this should be tagged (on-topic) - since it is a discussion whether questions like that are suitable for this site or not. I was also thinking about (specific-question) , I am not sure whether it's a good fit - the question is probably more about one specific topic that tied to one particular question (the one linked in the post). $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Apr 7 at 4:13

    $\begingroup$ Regarding the remark "leave it to Twitter, Reddit, blogs, ...", I'll just remind that MathOverflow has its own chatroom and on Mathematics there is Number Theory room - but neither of them is visited vary often. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Apr 7 at 4:15

I see a reasonable amount of mathematics in the answers, together with links to relevant discussions and papers.

I think the question is not about gossip, and it is a valuable service to mathematicians who are not themselves experts in the relevant topic such as myself.

I should probably add that I find the topic of obvious mathematical interest, and the links and surrounding discussion useful. The gossip, not so much.
