This question http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1753312/how-do-i-match-the-last-character-in-an-arbitrary-string-using-c-regexes (asked by me) seems quite reasonable:
- It summarises the question in the title.
- It shows why a solution that was commonly proposed by my coworkers doesn't work.
- It asks how to do it right.
- It has a real, short and very precise answer.
What prompted those comments that seem to imply the question is stupid, invalid, whatever? Could I have phrased it better? Should I just ignore such comments or should I take them as indication that I didn't word the question very well?
