Whilst it seems perfectly acceptable to make humourous comments and answers in SO, particularly where relates to technologies or in reference to flame wars, is it acceptable to make comments that may be regarded as demeaning to the person posing the question.
This seems particularly pertinent with regards to typos, which may in-fact be a misunderstanding of English.
For example: PHP regular expressions and XML
Was originally badly written, had many spelling mistakes and ended with the line:
Amy help will be sufficient
This was greeted with the first comment:
Amy's busy. Can River help?
I don't deny that the comment was funny. I chuckled. But then reflected on what the person (a first timer) asking the question would have thought. Potentially:
I asked for help, and instead my English got ridiculed. Farewell Stack Overflow.
A more welcoming response to the post would have been to edit it so that the question was more clearly asked and could get a decent answer.
Am I over-thinking this? Or is this regarded as a potential issue?
