Is Python a snake or a programming language? If the latter, why is it choking my dog?

I've seen several Questions lately typified by this one, which quite shamelessly solicits suggested names for a program variable.

I don't mind if a questioner wants help choosing suitable terms for his application to display (for example, when presenting user choices). But I really can't see why EL&U should concern itself with choice of variable names.

Would it be ok to flag such questions for moderator attention? Or am I being unreasonable?
