I asked a question about a currently active Internet discussion (What is the reason for the "left to right" rule?)
I specifically asked about the algebraic reason of one mathematical rule which drives towards the correct solution.
This was met by an "On Hold" and "how much more such questions do we have to endure".
I will honestly say that this infuriated me (I rewrote my EDIT a few times to remove the politically incorrect elements). I would have understood if it was closed because there was zero research done, when an answer was one google search away. Been there, seen that. "What is the result of $8 / 2(2+2)$?" would have been such a question.
Is my question objectively bad? if so - why?. Is it completely outside the realms of the site, or should it have been asked differently?
I will take answers at face value to better understand how Math SE works.
I will also note (because I have to note is somewhere, otherwise I will explode) that I understand why people are repulsed from math sometimes, should they meet a teacher like the Math SE comments to my question.
