Can I ask you an off-topic question about Hibernate?
But please, do it on StackOverflow and send me the link.
If you ask me a question about Hibernate in a blog post comment, I will not answer it because that’s not the right place to answer such questions.
Can I send you an email with a question about Hibernate?
I don’t answer questions over email. The best way to ask a question in to use StackOverflow.
You can send me the link to the StackOverflow question on Twitter, and I’ll do my best to answer it when I have time.
What if the question is not a good fit for StackOverflow?
Questions which are too broad or the answer is opinionated are not a good fit for StackOverflow.
In that case, you should ask the question on Quora and request me to answer it. Quora has a very nice feature where you can choose someone to answer your question instead of writing it as a comment on some unrelated post on this blog.
What are the blog post or page comments for?
You should use the blog post or page comments to address a question or start a discussion that’s relevant to the blog post or page you are commenting on.
Otherwise, it’s better to ask a new question on StackOverflow and ping me there.
