I've tried multiple times to ask a question about how to include meta data in a webpage, but whether I ask it on StackOverflow, Programmers.SE, or Webmasters.SE, it gets closed, voted down, and I'm ridiculed for not knowing how things work already. Each time, I politely ask that if I'm at the wrong place, that I be directed to the right place. However, users with high reputation and moderators still say things like these:
meta tags have been dead for a long time. Don't worry about that. You've wasted enough time on it already
I feel that this completely dismisses the point of the question, and doesn't provide any citation for why he made such a harsh claim. In my opinion, a better response would be showing me an article or study on why meta tags aren't used anymore, or which, if any, are still supported and what do use instead of meta tag keywords.
Meta blather doesn't belong in questions; it's your responsibility to determine if a question is on-topic for a site or not.
This was the edit comment (which does NOT work anymore now, but still included here for historical reasons) for removing my request for the proper site.
This even happens after I've moved it to an SE where I think (or have been told) it belongs. Recently, my request for pointing me to the right place was removed before they told me I was at the wrong place!
As I said, I'm new to this, so I don't exactly know the nuances of this. I know questions can be moved because one question I asked was moved from Superuser to Android.SE, and even then received no attention.
Am I the only one seeing this bias? I'm sure I have a bias since I'm new here, and don't know how high-rep users and moderators are treated, or if my questions are as stupid as they're being treated, but it feels like people could be more helpful. After all, I'm here to get help, not to be told I don't know enough and kicked out.
