As I didn't find any better title, please feel free to revisit.
Yesterday somebody asked a "simple" question: "How to ensure block elements will be on same line in a table?".
There were two answers, that perfectly solved the problem. But after a few minutes there was a comment like this on the question:
Is this a fake question? Why do you ask a simple question like that when you have 2000+ reputation. Do you just want to gain rep or attract bots to upvote your questions.
(This is not the original quote, cause the comments were removed. I tried to remember the content).
My question is: What is that supposed to mean? How can you gain extra or more reputation by asking a "simple" question when you already have a good rep? And what about this "bot thing"? Didn't get that either.
And by the way. I answered that comment with something like that:
Why should it be fake? Maybe the OP gained 2000 rep asking hardcore C++ questions but has no clue about HTML. (Not offending in any way.)
Immediately after my comment I got a down vote (my first one, argh) on "this (also very simple) answer" and some minutes later on my answer to the question from above, that was stated as "fake". I found that strange too, somehow. Or are my answers badly presented? I mean one line of code doesn't need much explanation – in those cases, right? And yes, I read "How to improve low quality answers consisting of only a code block?" just some minutes ago. :)
Maybe this is not a good (written) question, but maybe you can explain what this comment was all about.
