Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Why did I get -1 vote for both questions I asked regarding Stack Overflow? Is it something like bullying on this site?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

@Keyur: Read the FAQs page, and then post your questions to where they belong. – Ken White Dec 29 '10 at 19:40

The first rule of Stack Overflow is that you don't talk about Stack Overflow on Stack Overflow.

If you want to talk about the site itself, please don't do it here. Visit our meta-discussion site where you can talk about things like what questions are appropriate, what tags we should use, suggest a feature, or generally discuss how Stack Overflow works.

OK it's not quite the first rule, but it is mentioned quite early on in the FAQ.

Questions about Stack Overflow is what meta.stackoverflow is for, and that's why we are here now.

That and the "If your question is about this website, ask it on meta instead" in the sidebar of the "Ask Question" page. – mmyers Dec 29 '10 at 20:15
@MB You watch too many movies :-) – ringø Dec 30 '10 at 9:50

See best-voted answer to your question. I don't see why you're getting downvoted here on SO, as your question is on topic (even though it's a FAQ, it seems mean to downvote if well-intentioned).

It's a loaded question - "Is it something like bullying on this site?" - that's almost an invitation for downvotes. – jball Dec 30 '10 at 17:37
