The question at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18601128/trying-to-simulate-a-1-dimensional-wave seems to have been migrated from gamedev.SE to StackOverflow. While it doesn't have 'game' anywhere in its title, it's clearly a question that arose in a game development context (as evinced by the fact that it was posted here in the first place); it's a question that's likely to be of interest to game developers; and moreover, as a programming matter it's unlikely to be of interest to anyone but game developers (I'm hard-pressed to think of any other field that would be doing this sort of simulation at this level of simplicity). It was moved very agressively (within an hour of being posted) and AFAICT without any discussion at all, and I'm just a bit confused as to why this question in particular was picked out of dozens if not hundreds of similar simulational questions.
I migrated it because it wasn't specific to game development. Simulating a 1 dimensional wave is not something a game developer would know how to do better than another developer. Per the help, it did not pass the following test:
Would a professional game developer give me a better/different/more specific answer to this question than other programmers?
The question is asking about implementation of a mathematical algorithm:
Taking math equation and implementing code for it is not something that's specific to game developers. The question does not ask about games in any way.
Further, I can assure you I was very calm while migrating it, and there wasn't any aggression :)
Unfortunately, questions being posted here does not necessarily mean they have a game development context. This can be seen in the frequent questions about compiler errors, null pointer errors, linking issues etc. Those questions are typically asked here because the OP was in the process of making a game when the issue arose, but it doesn't mean it's a game development issue.
Even if the question we're talking about said it was for a game, it would be off topic here, for the reasons above.
