I have over the years had many questions on Math Overflow and Latex and some on Christianity, and there have been few problems. Why is it that now on History, Philosophy and English Language & Usage I encounter a troupe of sergeants or whatever that are resolved to down vote my perfectly reasonable question and have it removed?
I know that the topics in Philosophy and History and in English Language & Usage may at times be less exact than Mathematics and Latex, and I have been a University Professor of Philosophy almost thirty years!
It is particularly annoying when some of these bounty hunters enter into discussions where I am misrepresented or they have wrong ideas about the topic.
Are some of these people driven by political bias, or are there personality issues?
