Inspired by recent meta questions (Are question about job outside academia but related to on topic? and Are questions regarding academic internships off-topic?), I'd like to get some feedback on two very similar questions related to non-academic jobs/internships which were handled very differently.
The first question, Does your university name matter?, was closed as off-topic.
The second question, Does name of university matter for internships?, was not closed.
These two questions seem to be quite similar to my mind (perhaps, one is a duplicate of the other, but that is another matter). However, the outcomes of the two questions above is inconsistent and, I must say, confusing (to me, anyway). Why were these two questions handled so differently by the "powers that be?"
