I have a gut feeling that lately questions are very rapidly closed as "not a real question" without the OP giving a chance of modifying the question.
Example: import data from Excel
I presume the OP is not native English, as I see a lot of influx from non-English people too.
Maybe these two are correlated, maybe my gut feeling is totally off.
Do other people have similar experiences?
If yes: what to do about it?
Let's add some more oil, I might put that in another question later.
I have the generic feeling that SO (not SE!) is getting more hostile, both from askers and answerers.
Phrases like 'fed up' and 'please write my code for me' don't give a warm community feeling to new users, or users not familiar with the English language or with programming.
I think that feeling is what Joel et were after in the first place when starting SO.
The SE sites have much less of that, I think because those sites are in a much younger stage.
We - the users - should strive to keep this place a friendly one, and think about how to do that best.
Opinions, please :-)
