Recently in some of my posts, also here, and here, I have been getting down votes. The latter two, others have voted back up to make it zero. I am just wondering if people on MSE don't like questions about asking for clarifications about math concepts written from text? I also noticed sometimes in posts that have downvoted being cast, they don't get answered. I thought a question get downvoted if the person asking have not shown any research effort, whatever "research effort" suppose to mean. What is the equivalent of showing research effort in the context of asking for clarification when it comes to not understanding what one is reading and asking help for clarification.
Thank you in advance.
I understand that
