What is our attitude toward questions of the following form?
Multiple paragraphs describing a cool idea I had for interpreting something in the Torah.
Do any of the commentaries support this?
Here's the recent example that directly inspired this question, but I'm sure I've seen (and think I may have posted) others.
On one hand, permitting such questions could be dangerous, as it would seem to open the site up to people using it to publish their personal ideas about the Torah in as much detail as they please, as long as they tack on a pro-forma question coda at the end. In addition, it seems to be a close match, formally to the "just a rant in disguise: '______ sucks, am I right?'" type of subjecting question that our Help Center says to avoid.
On the other hand, such questions could result in valuable answers that cite interesting sources that confirm, deny, or put a different spin on the idea at hand. And, asking for sources in the commentaries is a bit more substantive and objective than simply asking "am I right"?
So, should we allow such questions?
Assuming the answer's not binary:
Where should we draw the line between "statement with a slightly rising tone at the end" (not allowed) and "genuine question that happens to contain possibly-original ideas of the author" (allowed)?
