The conceit of this site is that it provides expert, or the best, answers. It's hard to have the best answer if you have an incomplete question. Putting aside the frame challenge and comments that eventually disappear, or get deleted ...
This post is but one example of many that has me gritting my teeth on how the questions get answered at this site. (I expect this is a challenge for any "voting site" and will one day read the SE member's book on that topic.)
Any of us who may offer an answer on a group dynamics topic only have one side of the story to use as the basis for an answer.
When a person (me included) asks a question and it involves group dynamics, the default problem is that we only get one person's side of the story from which to attempt to arrive at a most excellent answer.
I have seen in both comments and in answers signs that some responders recognize this, but I have seen far more answers (I am now at ~700 pages of q and a reviewed of 850ish) that provide a canned or favorite response to a problem presented by one person from a group of people regarding what boils down to friction in expectations and interpersonal interactions.
This bothers me enough to ask about it. None of the RPGE "powers that be" nor the SE "powers that be" wish for this venue to turn into an interactive forum type of site.
The question I'd like to see answered is:
While staying within the constraints of the SE format: are there tags, links, old discussions, or community derived tools that reflect my concern and thus guidance to that flaw in the model?
What is the flaw? We only get one side of the story yet try to provide a "best answer" with incomplete information.
We don't get the whole story when a "problem player" or "group dynamics" or "styles are in conflict" question gets asked.
Fortunately, some folks who answer do point to style differences, GNS concepts, and the critical issue of communication in any problem resolution. Unfortunately, I've seen the canned answers get a lot of up votes
RL "incomplete story" that contributes to why this bugs me
I have served on two jury's. The most disturbing thing this has taught me is how a jury does NOT get the whole story. Never. Both the defense and the prosecution work to only tell the jury a part of the story. Lawyers are hard working, smart, and motivated to succeed. So, the jury does not get the whole story. On the last jury where I served, the judge visited with us afterwards before we returned to our normal lives. When asked something by one of my fellow jurors, she shared some facts that could not be introduced into evidence.
Sometimes, when a jury doesn't have the whole story, the jury can arrive at a "wrong answer" and either convict the wrong person or not convict one who has committed a crime.
This site provides an unregulated jury, at best.

Full disclosure: I am sure I have been guilty of this already at least once. It was the linked post, and @thatgirldm's reply (which I liked a lot, including the diva point) that got the gears churning.
