The Help Center prevails.
It's clearly stated in the Help Center that questions that ask us to rewrite text or otherwise tell you what to say are off topic.
I understand your confusion!
As per this meta:
If a question is a good/important question, (weather you disagree with it or not) up vote the question. This makes this question more likely to get broad attention and user-participation to get a strong mandate
Then post or up vote an answer stating reflecting your view. The highest-voted answer reflects the current majority will of the community.
With one exception: there are some questions tagged as feature-request. For those, you upvote the question if you want to see that feature implemented, and you downvote it if you think the feature is a bad idea.
So in your example the community voted that:
- Its an important question (+15/-5 as of this writing)
- Phrasing question should be on topic (+12/-2)
Now in theory the community makes the rules. So if this discussion is considered mature enough, the help-center should be changed to reflect that. As per @Catija s comment there is further discussion (could´t find it, will update if link is provided) to be found about this topic, so there may be more arguments to consider.
The answer with the highest up votes prevails. But resulting policy may be affected by further discussions.
