This question already has an answer here:
Well, it's been 4 months. And I am impressed.
I am also a bit disappointed.
Before you read this, take it with a pinch of salt. I'm kinda new, still. I'm still learning the ropes. But I've done a lot of browsing through old questions and new questions, and all the comments in between.
Why am I disappointed, you might ask? Well, I'm disappointed because of the (re)occurence of the yousuck effect. No, I'm not talking about the stern warnings to "read the faq" or the "please post your code". I'm talking about this question. And there are others, if anyone wants to add them.
The first comment on the question was by Mitch Wheat: "It's that time of day again..."
Look, I might have got an easy welcome to Stack Overflow. I posted some dumb stuff. I also posted some good questions, if I say so myself.
But just because it's the time of day where the foreign people (not sure from where because they could be many nationalities) come onto the site and post so-so questions DOES NOT mean that you should treat them like crap.
I know that I wouldn't want to be treated like a useless statistic if I was a foreign person with a question.
And for all those other high-rep people out there, I know what you are like. I know that you are generous. I know that you help me out when I get stuck. But please, please just realize that every new account is, well, a new person. And that is an account that should be treated with utmost respect. And really, the high-rep people should be setting the good examples.
... not to pick on you, but Mitch, I guess that the comment was deleted for a good reason. I think that it was a good move to delete it.
So in conclusion, just realize that there are people who care. I hate this stuff. I did a "dodgy upvote" because I felt bad for the poor guy. So please, please just do the downvotes and the flags. Maybe you could try to help them out once in a while.
But try to keep the snarky comments to yourself.
