I understand that you should not be thinking about Torah while in the bathroom. I assume that existing Mi Yodeya questions would be considered Divrei Torah, b/c people have been discussing Torah ideas (for MOST of the questions, that is.)

However, a question that has not yet been posted, maybe is NOT in the category of "Divrei Torah". After all, the question might be rejected, it may be off-topic, etc. So, maybe it is permissible?

    Questions that involve Torah can still be off-topic. If you are thinking about Torah, you are thinking about Torah. – Fred Jul 17 '14 at 21:19
  • @Fred - Good point. I'm going to ponder over this very question, now ... while I go to the bathroom. I may have to edit or delete it :-( – DanF Jul 17 '14 at 21:24

    Wait, were you in the bathroom when you thought of this question? – Yehuda Jul 17 '14 at 23:42

If it involves Torah in any way, shape, or form, it's assur. See this question about Purim Torah.
