It would be useful if we could have some custom off topic close reasons.

One of the most useful ones would be:

Any others?

Questions seeking product or service recommendations are off-topic because they tend to become obsolete quickly. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve.

This question is off-topic because it is about an area of space exploration not covered in our scope. You might be able to get help on Space Exploration.

    $\begingroup$ I agree with Chris. First thing I did on Phy was to deactivate our "move to math" option (and later push for a migration path). It encourages cross posting which we may not really want. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Oct 11 '13 at 18:46
