I have a question about my Network Engineering Stack Exchange post: What are typical causes for phantom messages and how do network protocols deal with them?
This question was closed for being off-topic, the reasoning was that the question belongs in the category "education, certification, or homework", wheras my reasoning for asking in here was that i saw the category "theory of protocols used to operate a network (e.g. IP, TCP, routing protocols, STP, etc)" was listed specifically as being on-topic.
Could anyone expand on that? Is there a different SE site it would fit better in your eyes?
