You would think ASP.NET had nothing to do with it.

There's a dedicated forum for Azure:

Do you have a question? If it is related wo cloud computing you should try the link above.
Also you should have a deeper look at what cloud computing really is. You can build great web applications build on Windows Azure with ASP.NET. Additionally cloud computing is not the answer for every problem.

No this is feedback about the site.
One would think that as this is Microsoft's primary web server development technology there would be a section devoted to it here.
Perhaps there should be because Azure is a platform and not an end in it's own. Development of applications with ASP.NET running on Azure is very relevant and hence the surprise and feedback about the site.

Then you should go for the MSDN forum provided above. The MSDN forum is dedicated for Windows Azure. This forum has more a focus on ASP.NET (because not every ASP.NET application is running in Windows Azure).

So your argument is, don't include ASP.NET web role discussions here because there may be some people to whom it is not relevant. (even if there are a many it may be relevant).
I think it should strongly be considered it as there is a cross over between the two technologies and this is not being addressed. The Azure Development forum has little contribution towards MVC security or deployment in Azure or tooling in VS. They are
concerned with the platform as a service predominately and as you say there are many forms a cloud app can take. There is only one forum for which bundles all 'Development' style questions.
I hear what you say but I think it is wrong as it stands and presents risk.

Thanks for the feedback. We do have 2 new tutorials here on Azure deployment with Web Forms and MVC:
Hosting an ASP.NET Web Forms Application on Windows Azure
Walkthrough: Hosting an ASP.NET MVC Application on Windows Azure
The bottom of those tutorials point out additional resources for Azure. I'm sure we'll continue to build up our Azure content here in the coming weeks and months.

We have now also created an Azure and ASP.NET forum on this site:
