MSE is really the best for specific how-to questions, but they don't accept much else. If your question is vague, or the discussion goes on too long, the moderators can get quite steamed.
Despite all the crank postings here (they are quite easy to spot after a while), sci.math and sci.logic can be a useful forum for just getting your thoughts together on some topic -- something the MSE moderators just won't tolerate. They might gently suggest you use their chat room (never did like chat), or they can be quite abrupt. Though, overall, my experience there has been very positive.
