I usually post long answers to questions with some illustrations of how to simulate the problem, where applicable, and possible option to fix it. My understanding of posting an answer is to make it useful for others and not just the community.
For the first time I received a down vote for an answer being long. User left the below comment.
-1 as this is excruciatingly long, for a relatively simple question. Keep to the point. SO is a a Q&A system, not a tutorial repository.
This answer was not even the longest of my answers. All my answers look long because I use lot of screenshots. Anyways, it was surprising to see the comment and left me wondering if my answers are not suitable for SO's Q&A style approach.
I am trying to understand if the answers that I am posting are considered tutorials and unfit for SO's Q&A style. It will be nice to have someone shed some light so I can understand if this is just one user's opinion or the above comment embodies the community's views as well.
