I saw someone asking (in this question) for some sources to learn Pali language so he can broaden his understanding of Buddhism.
The reason given by the user who had asked it to be edited was it being off topic.
But here's the thing I am confused about.
We are interested in Buddhism and that's why we come here: so when someone asks us for a good source to learn, should we be like robots and say, "you are off topic", or should we lend a hand to that person who is in search of 'the path'? I mean after all isn't that the advice in Buddhism: to be good friends to fellow searchers of path?
Can't we be more sensitive than being objective in certain circumstances?
