I'm wondering if it would be appropriate to ask a soft question on MO regarding mathematical etiquette. In more detail, I'm writing a paper that cites a well-known paper in my field, but I've been informed that there are concerns regarding the validity of parts of that paper. I'm curious about how to tactfully handle referring to the results in that paper, so I would like to ask an MO question about it. Would such a question be appropriate?
