Questions asking "what if" are off-topic as per the Help-Center:

To prevent your question from being flagged and possibly removed, avoid asking subjective questions where …

  • ...
  • you are asking an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ______ happened?”
  • ...

How should we handle such questions?

  • I.e. is there a specific 'close-reason' we should be using?

    "How should we handle such question" - Uh, I guess in the same way we already do all the time. And for that "too broad" and "primarily opinion-based" seem sufficient close-reasons to me, depending on the particular question.
