@ankur that's great -- post the link with a short summary and it would be the right answer.

A CPAP is a piece of medical equipment used to assist breathing in certain situations, such as certain complications of asthma or emphysema, or certain sleep breathing disorders like sleep apnea.

comment Is it cheaper to mail a small package to Germany from Turkey, Bulgaria, or Romania?
@matthew An explanation was given in the close message. If you find that insufficient, meta is the place to handle it so that everyone can participate. It isn't fair to establish precedent for on- or off- topicness of a subject in the comments of a closed question where most users will never see it or have the chance to weigh in. Regardless of your intent, that is the effect of having this sort of discussion in comments. That is why we insist that it happen in meta only.

@Matthew: Feel free to start a meta discussion about this if you feel strongly that it should be re-opened. "We didn't discuss it on meta" in itself is not enough reason to re-open. Additionally, this is the sort of conversation that belongs on meta -- here in the comments it serves only as noise. I'll be cleaning up the comments in a bit to remove this exchange.

Exactly -- and if they improve, the answer will no longer be accurate.
