Are people here, who VTD questions, read with understanding questions, that they vote to delete?
I asked this question. It was deleted within EIGHT minutes. I went to toilet and when I came back, I wasn't even able to write a single comment to explain or clarify.
I understand, everyone reserves right to have own opinion, but I must admit, that reaction from side of this community actually shocked me (eight minutes?). Especially:
bluefeet saying "Coming to meta to ask users to downvote a post, sorry but that gets a -1 from me" -- cool, I just did, what waffles told in highly upvoted answer; if it is wrong, fix or edit it; don't punish me for that!
Oded said: "This is specific to SO, so why post on MSE? 2. Soliciting downvotes on a meta site - that's not what Waffles said, was it?" -- waffles wrote an answer on MSE and yes -- wafflles exactly said something like that, to cite: "Post a question on meta asking for people to downvote it", have you looked at link given by me, before VTD?
Bill the Lizard asking "It already has a score of -2. What do you think is going to happen if people downvote it even more?" -- I must admit, that you surprised me with this comment; what is going to happen? isn't that questions with -10 are grayed out? That was, what I was expecting,
Andrew Barber saying: "The text from waffles you posted was meant as something of a joke, because that's what the person asking the question did. Admittedly, that may not be obvious"; no, it is absolutely NOT obvious to me; maybe I'm more stupid than you; a single smiley at the end doesn't actually mean, someone is joking; he/she just can have a good mood, right? And, no, there isn't even a trace of joking in OP's question to this answer; where do you see it?
Once again, I understand, that my question could be wrong and that you reserve right to have your own opinion, completely different than mine. But, guys, give yourself a break, I didn't wrote a spam or something completely stupid, I simply made something, that someone understood as a joke, while I didn't. Give me at least some time to react. Deleting question within eight mintues, which doesn't give me any chance to react, is a behavior, that I seen on many very low quality forums and among very low quality communities. I'd never expect such behavior here and among you.
Sorry, but my general opinion about this community has been downvoted about 100 times for past ten mintues. Pity and sad, but true. I know, that you completely don't care about that, but at least I had a chance to express my thoughts. You didn't give me that chances, by deleting question after 8 minutes!
