In On the closing of Computer Algebra & Symbolic Computation the poster is complaining about getting his prized proposal closed, not an uncommon occurence.
What is uncommon is the poster mentions that he was disgusted with the closing and begins calling out individual users, including me! :)
I am particularly disgusted with the closing of the Computer Algebra & Symbolic Computation proposal.
I wrote my appeal here, before it was closed. I am wondering if any of those who casted it out did indeed read this. Namely,
- WikiSpeedia hang-around
- Mark Rogers
- Tadeusz A. Kadłubowski
As far as I know it is considered out-of-bounds for a user to start calling out other users in a confrontational manner. If Stack Overflow users started calling out closers on Meta Stack Overflow, they would probably get the rough end of the community.
I've flagged the post recently for a third time, so some administrators must have already seen this post and choose to not close it.
I would like to know why?
I would like to know why this is acceptable on Area 51, but it doesn't seem to be acceptable on other Stack Exchange sites?
Is it acceptable to call out individual users in a discussion rant?
