I had a longer question written up that was similar to this, but included my real question. But I wanted to start more conservatively in finding the correct forum for it...
Where should one ask questions of the sort "how do I isolate and test a specific part of my software system that does not appear to me to lend itself to mocking or unit testing?"? Is there an appropriate forum within the SE ecosystem for getting help with targeted testing strategies regarding a specific complex system?
My hesitation comes from the fact that my question would seem to solicit "opinion based" answers. I'm pretty sure there won't be "a RIGHT answer" to my issue.
PS: btw, I had trouble in even picking an appropriate tag for this question.
