Update: I withdrew this policy proposal. It received 5 downvotes and no upvotes.
This is a policy proposal. The proposed policy in the question or its answers will be adopted in the case that after 3 days it received at least 5 upvotes with a 2/3 majority in favor (*). Please upvote or downvote this question or its answers based on your opinion of the policy statement as presented, not just based on whether the premise of the question or its answers is reasonable.
(*) That is, x≥5 and x≥2y, where x is the number of upvotes and y is the number of downvotes.
I propose the following as a policy:
POLICY. Questions that describe a proof of some statement or an algorithm for some problem and ask others to do all the work to check its correctness are deemed to be off topic and closed.
The intent is to give a clear ground to close questions like “Algorithm for Longest Path in Undirected Weighted Graph” in the future. While the question had a specific goal (present a counterexample to the stated algorithm), I find it wrong to ask other people simply to do all the work to check the correctness of proofs or algorithms.
The proposal has something in common with some of the answers to “How to ask a good question?,” namely this one, this one and this one, even if they did not already cover the case with which this proposal is concerned.
