This page about suspensions uses some vague language and I am curious as to what it means by:

The user never gives anything back to the community, but only takes.

That would include

  • getting an answer and immediately deleting the question (before it can be upvoted)

  • morphing your questions into something else once they have been answered

Accepting answers is a good way of giving back too. Nobody expects you to accept all your answers, or even most of them but perhaps if you've asked a number of questions and never bothered to accept any of the answers to even one of them...

  • I don't think anyone could accuse me of taking without giving back (I think I've awarded 5 bounties in the past two weeks). I was just curious. I haven't deleted any questions unless I realized they were duplicates or discovered the answer on my own immediately after I asked them.
