Rules on ask metafilter

I have had questions deleted before for being "too chatty" but I see questions all the time that seem very chatty. Can someone tell me if you can post chatty questions?

I need [more inside] and less outside.

A KISS Reminder for RelationshipFilter on the Ask Mefi Question Page?

Ask Metafilter relationship questions that are 25+ paragraphs long, which is a more and more frequently seen problem, never go well. How about putting wording to that effect on the Ask Mefi posting page? [more inside]
