I've recently learned about "Help Vampires" as a concept. It's something that's easy to forget about until I see a
-1 attach to a question I ask on Stack Overflow, and I instantly feel the blood in my mouth.
I assume most down-votes are good faith indicators from peers that I've asked something inappropriate, poorly worded, or poorly researched, and will delete the question if I see more than a few.
But I wanted to ask here, is that appropriate behavior from me? It's not a selfless act, having a poorly received anything sitting on the internet is stressful and removing it is a quick escape. I want to believe it undoes any damage upon the community by de-cluttering it, but I always worry that someone may be in the midst of typing something important and I'm rudely cutting them off.
Is it a problem at all to delete a badly received question very quickly?
