There are two opposed answers to the question on localization of questions and answers. If we allow answers for any jurisdiction to a question, there might be tons of answers to each question -- and each of them valid!
How do we proceed if we allow such general jurisdiction questions?
Europe alone has over 30 countries, United States has 50 states and then there's the rest of the world. The laws across Europe will most likely be very similar or even identical and the same could be said for the United States, but there will be differences.
If a question does not specify a jurisdiction and it gets an answer on how it's done in Texas, Portugal, France and South Africa, what answer should the asker accept? Normally on StackExchange, answers are sorted by voting to make an order from "best answer" to "worst answer", but how should voting work with answers that are all correct but apply in different locales?
Should we vote based on how big the jurisdiction is (a US answer should get more upvotes than a Portugal answer) or perhaps based on how developed the answer is (a detailed and sourced answer for Portugal should get more upvotes than a one-liner for the US)?
Or is this enough of a problem that each question must make clear the wanted jurisdiction?
