According to a declined flag, the meta question Are questions asking technical issues on academic services on-topic? does not reach a consensus:
I agree that there aren't many upvotes on the yes answers, but we also have "indirect consensus":
- the no answer has 4 downvotes
- the question itself has 15 upvotes
- there is no opposite comment in the yes answers.
Can we safely and objectively assume that we have reach a consensus? And in general, is there a consensus if there is no direct evidence but only indirect one?
