I come from the main StackOverflow, where I've largely self-taught myself how to code in modern languages by asking a bunch of questions. People are friendly, as we are all aware that natural language search still hasn't gotten to the point where the same questions, phrased in different words, is easily findable.
I just asked a question here, which was immediately downvoted with no comment. My question was asked thoroughly, with diagrams and link references. Maybe I made some mistakes in describing my method of approach - I'm not sure - could people comment instead of just downvote? Is my question just simply so badly phrased or obvious that it's clearly worth a -2 immediately?
This isn't the first instance here, where I feel either ostracized or even scared of posting a question!
Why are people so discouraging here?
