the question. I understand that it's super-basic-preschool-stupid (actually no question is stupid) question, but is it right to down vote it just for that?
Few things that math taught me, is to question everything from the most abstractive idea to the smallest detail that nobody got will to deal with, doubt everything, never take things as they are etc...
I'm also sure it will be usefull as I'm definetly not the only one who asked about it, nor will ask about it in the future.
what made someone downvote it and is it right? Is it just his ego boost as his level is way superior for this kind of question to be around?
I know it's a Trivial question, it was meant to be one, I knew the answer before I asked it, the reason I asked it was becuase I wanted to be sure.
did my "research" and stumbled upon this suggestion, that suggest that downvotes for answers will cost 1 rep for you and 2 rep for the user who answered, and downvotes for question will just cost 2 downvotes for the user who posted the question.
I don't know if it's been done but, I extremely dissagree with it. I don't care that even one of the things that literally pops up when you hover on a downvote for a question says "This question does not show research value", the thing is, there is no bad question (maybe only if it's been posted, and that area is taken care of), but there is a bad answer.
questions should only be encouraged.
