I'm coming from meta stackoverflow, Details are not important. I edited an answer there to reduce complexity by getting rid of the real-world example (essentially code bloat). So, would it really be beneficial for a reader to have a real world example (maybe get a firm grasp on what the OP wants to achieve), or would it make it harder to read/skim to have the question longer?
Do readers prefer short, concise questions, or long elaborative questions with a real example? (Keep in mind that the short question had all information necessary to figure out and solve the problem, the only difference is that a real example might be easier to get your head around)
