- Could we please be a bit nicer to new users? 49 answers
This might not be the regular trend but every now or then I see a new user asking a question (that does not fit the Stack Exchange question format) and is downvoted heavily. I'm just trying to understand why and if possible anything can be done instead. I know of a couple of people who essentially make throwaway accounts to ask questions because they don't know how to format their questions and get downvoted for it.
