Inspired by this innocent question, I bring to the notice of the community the following issue:
The official "subtitle" of the economics.se site is
"For professional and academic economists and analysts"
Well, is it? Based on the questions we receive, even excluding those that are closed, it seems to me that this is not an accurate description of what happens in the main site (and it has been happening for two years now).
We have had similar discussions in the past, but then we were discussing intended scope. But now we have a two-year reality on our back, and maybe it is time to acknowledge that this site functions much more as a place to clarify "the misunderstandings of the common man" as well as some tricky aspects of economic thinking and technique tormenting undergraduate and graduate students of economics, rather than engaging in professional/academic discourse.
So how about contemplating changing our "subtitle"?
I will write my proposal as an answer, so that upvoting/downvoting this question should be translated as "yes/no" to changing the subtitle in the first place, while answers can compete for the actual new subtitle.
