I sometimes find myself asking questions that are of the following kind:
- I am looking for confirmation because I'm not sure about something
- After reading an answer/comment I realise I've overlooked something very very basic/simple
In general these kind of questions serve only me, because they are generated by my own insecurity, hastiness, ignorance or inexperience. They are unlikely to help anybody else and I therefore feel the tendency to delete them. Is this an OK thing to do, a bad thing to do, or do most people feel indifferent?
To clarify: I'm don't want to delete questions which have gotten answers with upvotes. In that case I would deprive people of their reputation points and I don't want to do that. I'm talking about questions where, for example, a simple yes in the comments has sufficed.
