I am looking at this question and it references a table with source and target columns. I am transitioning from another area of expertise and this makes little sense to me. I have a very established definition (example) of what I know this to be, but it doesn't fit the context at all.
I would like to comment: "What are source and target columns?"
I think this would be inappropriate since:
- It would muck up his/her question and create confusion
- I am sure that users of this board would know the answer and my clarification would add nothing to the answer
- If people made a habit of of this activity, this site would become a mess of cross-links and change its structure
So what is the appropriate procedure in this situation? Asking a separate question of "What are source/target columns" in a separate question would have no context and be very confusing and likely downvoted.
