As long as you ask questions about Pharo, this is the place.

It does not matter that you would use the term Smalltalk when doing so or when learning.

This is not the place to talk about fishing, time travel, different shades of blue, ... 

The context should always be Pharo, it is very simple.


BTW: 'Smalltalk' is a concept, not a single concrete language, and certainly not a single implementation.
