I posted this question:
It was hastily "closed as exact duplicate". However, when I looked at the article that it references, neither of my questions were referenced.
What kind of mechanisms are in place to "politely disagree". If someone looks at the subject without understanding what's being asked, what recourse do people have?
In my humble opinion, the fastest way to get people to stop posting on StackOverflow is to instantly close a question. If someone takes the time to write out a question, it's a contribution of content to the community. Give other members the opportunity to read it, understand it and answer it. What mechanisms are in place to prevent hasty closing of questions?
