I would like to ask what to do if you receive an answer which is:
- containing false information
I'd like to ask for some guidance about what I did wrong.
I asked a question, someone answered me off-topic, clearly not having made much effort to read through my question. I tried to explain in a comment what my question is once again, but they just posted a link to a very general on-line tutorial on the subject and also wrote something which contained an elementary mistake and contradicted the tutorial. I didn't want to point anything out, so I just wrote what is correct (to the best of my knowledge) and reiterated my original question/doubt, phrasing it in a yet different manner. Someone else wrote an emotional comment asking "why I'm here since I obviously know everything and no one else has any idea what they're talking about".
Well, obviously I don't know everything (hence I'm asking) but when I ask for an apple, I don't want an orange in return and when someone writes something blatantly false, I have the right to contradict it? Or not?
I'm new to Stack Exchange sites, so I'd be glad especially for the opinion of users with high reputation or long history of using the sites.
