What would justify downvoting a
[discussion] (Questions marked discussion on MSO)? Recently, a user was directed here by a moderator to ask a question about which subjects are appropriate for SuperUser. Upon asking this question, the user was downvoted*. Why? I don't know. The question was marked as
[discussion]. If it had been
[feature-request], I can understand the downvote.
Are we discouraging
[discussion] by downvoting posts that don't really deserve downvotes? Or is there some justification for downvoting a user who is simply here inquiring about an idea?
* Not by many, but this is only one occassion. Many
[discussion] questions have been downvoted numerous times
** Yes, this is marked
[discussion], and I'm sure some of you will think it's cute to downvote it.
