It is Friday. I wanted to ask this question a while ago. May be I will just say it now.
I asked http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11158721/sql-not-like-not-working and answered it myself thinking that such question did not exist (I searched first) and posted my own answer (by that time I had found what was wrong and it did eat up an hour of mine) thinking it may help someone. Initially it was received well but then it was bombarded with down votes. My answer itself was downvoted and ultimately deleted. As if I had touched raw emotions? I wasn't expecting this at all. All I thought ok question is appropriately answered or may be someone can answer it better and they will just move on, but people did not. They were stuck here. I am still getting downvotes on this question, got 1 today, got 2 last week. It seems there is no end to it.
Now this question can easily be deleted by a moderator or a couple of high reps user but it was never deleted and it continuously gets downvotes. Can someone put me in the right direction, did I really do something that wrong that people can't get over it? Were there raw emotions involved?
Can we bring some type of closure to it so that it does not offend any other people? May be the question can be deleted? I apologize if hurt anyone.
Note: I am not asking for upvotes or downvotes, just wanted to raise this issue, related to raw emotions.
