Which rules were broken that meant that this question was an ill-fit for ELL?
To copy my comment across after it started collecting close votes:
This site isn't about English grammar. It's about helping people who are learning English to get on in the English speaking world. Someone learning English wanting to know if a capitalized word "FREE" means the same (or is grammatical) compared with the word "free" sounds like an entirely legitimate question for ELL.
I've voted to re-open because I can't see any good reason why this question doesn't fit with ELL's mission of helping new English speakers to find their feet in the English speaking world.
It's also obviously a bad fit for ELU, so if not ELL, where can an English learner legitimately ask whether capitalization of words changes their meaning?
It's not even a stupid question, since there are words which do change their meaning when you capitalise them differently.
The Titanic was a titanic ship
A change of law says that turkeys may march in Turkey in May or in March.
Barack Obama speaks on behalf of all of us / Barack Obama speaks on behalf of the US
Or my favourite, but somewhat more rude when miscapitalized:
I helped my uncle Jack off his horse
So anyway, I think this question is a question which isn't necessarily obvious to a new speaker, it isn't a grammar question that is fit for ELU, and it's a question that's helping a new English Learner with a problem that he actually encountered.
I'm voting to re-open unless someone can tell me why this isn't a good fit for ELL, or what specific FAQ rules were broken.
EDIT This is what the FAQ says:
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much.
If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about _”, then you should not be asking here. However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain _ to me”, then you are probably OK.
It seems to me then that this question is valid to all three of those requirements. It's a real question that an English learner actually encountered, it's a limited scope question and it's phrased as a question and not a discussion.
