I'd like to ask something like the following question on the main site. Is this a good and acceptable question? Should it be edited in some way? Are the tags correct? Should we also add the tantra tag?
(Please don't try to answer the following question here -- this meta-question is about whether the question is acceptable and can be moved to the main site to be asked and answered there.)
Title: Explanations of Buddhist "thought-provoking dissonance" in dialectics?
Zen question-and-answers and talks like the ones described here (also mentioned in books like this one) don't seem like orthodox 'right speech'; yet, they are believed or intended to trigger spiritual progress.
What's the mechanism by which such interactions are beneficial (for example is it meant to be thought-provoking dissonance and anger, therefore ultimately dissatisfaction with conventionally-held positions)?
If used on a site like this one, such interactions might attract down-voting and deletion, etc.
Can you recommend any writings or talks, by relatively recent (say in the last 50 years) Buddhist teachers, about such interactions?
Have the teachers specified how to distinguish or identify such dissonance-causing dialectics, as opposed to gratuitously-offensive "wrong speech"?
This was partially a question about asking questions on this site: but I am more interested in asking it as a question about Buddhist dialectics in the real world.
