I asked this question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7324321/mathematics-instead-of-if-statements and it was closed as "Not a real question". Thanks a lot!
I can't be more specific in that post, because I don't fully understand my problem. Instead of getting upset about a broad question, how about one of you moderators just helps me narrow my topic down and has me edit my question?
This place is very limited, because very few people know exactly what their issue is. The only people this place helps are those who already know a lot about their problem, and who could probably find their answer on their own anyways.
I don't know where else to ask, and I can't do what you're asking because I don't know how, so I guess this is just a big "we don't care" from Stack Overflow. I actually lament coming here because it feels sterile and dry, like going to jury duty. Maybe there's a place for broad questions in insert prefixOverflow, but there are a gazillion of them, and I don't know which to try.
Sigh. I know this will probably just get closed, but I'm not swearing or pointing out anyone specific, and I'm just giving my opinion. I just wish Stack Overflow had more humanity in it than a robot from the 50's.
