This is regarding my question here, and the subsequent back-and-forth I had with moderator @RonMaupin: "Dumb" conference-phone device?
Before posting this question on NE, I was unsure where on Stack Exchange it belonged. I Googled "stack exchange telecom" and found these 2 posts:
- Network Engineering Meta: Questions about telecom networks
- Stack Exchange Meta: Networking stackexchange
Seeing as the NE Meta post was more recent and the answer was very emphatic that NE is the proper place for telecom questions ("From POTS to ISDN to VoIP to IP telephony, all are part of a network."), I felt confident that NE was the right place for my question.
I posted my question, and shortly afterwards Ron put it on hold because of product recommendations being off-topic. I respectfully explained that my question was not asking for recommendations, but asking if such a device exists at all. He apparently agreed, because the off-topic reason changed to it not being "about professionally managed networks in a business environment. " Again I explained that this was in fact for use in a business environment, as I had written in my question. He commented that "Phones are not on-topic here" (in contradiction to the NE Meta post above) and explained that I can post my disagreement on NE Meta. So here I am.
