I understand that this site has an established history of prejudice (🙃) towards questions about shared hostings or control panels. However, I still can't see how these questions (1, 2) not comply with the requirements in the on-topic page. Those questions don't mention any control panel, using only commands to interact with the server, and asking about the communication between my server and bots. Since they aren't even about the interaction between the client (me) and the server, I think whether I have root access to my server or not is irrelevant.
I ask these questions not just to solve my immediate problem, but also to learn more knowledge about webserver/sysadmin, so that I can navigate what's best for me in the future, and to be more efficient to communicate with an insider. In my opinion, these questions can only be asked from a servermaster mindset, not a webmaster mindset.
I think the position of the asker is not important. But the mindset of the asker is.
I can ask them elsewhere (Reddit, say), but I think the SE format is best suited for them. Webmasters SE may also welcome them, but given that they are asked from a perspective of a wannabe servermaster, I think it should belong here.
Perhaps I cannot help myself, but gaining more knowledge with give me a better position to discuss with the technician. He has no obligation to help me debug, but if I can show him the possible problem, then probably it will intrigues his curiosity and work with me. And even if it's not possible, questions asking on SE are not solely to help the OP, but also help others. The questions are closed in order to avoid spiral with me only, but for others who actually have root access, they might see them interesting.
What are the harms for me to ask this kind of question? What are the harms for you to accept this kind of question? Why are these questions should be off-topic rather than on?
