I've been following SO for some time and lately (or is it my impression?) I see many comments on users' posts being ironic or in no way constructive. I've flagged a couple but they seem to reappear. The question is, should there be some kind of other mechanism? Or is it ok to go about mocking naive users with stupid questions?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
