Not all users neglect the FAQ, and those that don't can still be mislead by it since unfortunately we inherit the generic SO template as Knight correctly pointed out in a comment to a question of his which got closed.
@Chuck Please accept my apologies if i have misread the FAQ. It says "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face". This is an actual problem I face and I would appreciate any suggestions or answers.
This can definitely be misinterpreted and we should be able to change it somehow. Of course the point still holds if you interpret "an actual problem" as "an actual research problem".
