The OP is asking for knowledge from a particular viewpoint and I don't see anything wrong with that. There are different schools of jurisprudence in Islam and the person asking the question might be only interested in knowing about a particular viewpoint. I don't see any problem with the question.

There are different schools in Islam and answers to jurisprudence questions can heavily depend on the school and scholar, there is not a general consensus among Muslims and Islamic scholars regarding the answer to these questions. A person who is following say Hanafi School might not be interested in answers from say Shia school. Even finer levels of scope should be permitted since one might follow the rulings of a particular Muslim scholar.

(On the other hand I find your post problematic since it assumes your beliefs as the base for the discussion "Well in Islam there is no Shia no Sunni no Shafai no Hanafee [...]" which is demonstrably incorrect. You are assuming a particular view and using as a base for restricting what questions can asked which is unhelpful IMHO.)
