We have had questions about naming a company, a product, or some other commercially relevant thing in Latin. To be on topic, this questions have to satisfy our quality standards (whatever they are), but is that enough? While they produce interesting content related to Latin and are what the site is about, they are also a form of free consultancy for anyone who wants to use Latin.
Should we somehow react to this commercial aspect? Are questions like this okay, or should we frown upon them? Should we let them be or react somehow?
In some cases it might be possible to hide the commercial incentive, but I assume (perhaps wrongly) that most will be honest with it. It can be hard to veil a question as something it is not while still keeping it intelligible.
The solution is not to require monetary awards for answers given on our site. It is fine if someone finds an expert on this site and contacts them privately for consultancy, but Stack Exchange sites are not a place for paid effort. I know some things that the solution is not, but I do not know what the solution is. Do yo?
This question was inspired by fdb's comment to the answer to this question: "Is this really what this site is for? I mean: doing free consultancy work for a commercial enterprise?"
