I come to understand that there is some policy regarding users who repeatedly show little effort on their part when asking questions.
Is it correct? If so, what are the parameters by which a user is measured as showing little effort continuously?
Recently I came across a user that keeps asking very low quality questions: most of them are down voted and close. Yet, this only happens when the users asks questions for a specific tag. For other tags, it seems like he/she makes a nice contribution to SO. It's just this specific topic/tag that the user refuses to learn and improve his/her questions. What can be done? It's annoying to keep getting these low-effort low-quality questions...
I understand that the exact parameters of the banning mechanism are not published for good reasons. I'm not after the secret ingredients, and I believe the system works fine in general.
My question is regarding a particular user that on some topics (tags) exhibits "ban-worthy" behavior (at least to my understanding) while for others he/she is a respectable member of SO community.
- Can a user be partly banned?
- Can this user be discouraged from participating in certain tags?
- Or better still, is there an effective way of helping this user improve his/her behavior and learn more before he asks for all tags?
After a short period of peaceful quietness, this phenomenon repeats itself.
Any new ideas?
