This question was closed a few minutes after being asked (and about a minute after I answered it) by a moderator. The moderator left a rather brusque comment before closing the question. I had posted an answer, but nobody other than the moderator had commented before the question was closed; this was a unilateral action on the part of the moderator.
It was closed as being "not a real question", but it was very clear (to me) what the question was. I (and another commenter) believe the comment reveals that the moderator was out of his depth regarding the subject matter. Sure, the question was not well researched, but it was (in my view) clearly from a novice and I think there should be some leeway here. Furthermore, it was flat-out wrong, in my view, for the moderator to impugn the motives of the OP.
