I have just seen something which annoyed me very much.
I am wondering why this question was closed. I am also wondering why none of those closing the question took the time to tell the OP why the question was closed. This last bit is what annoyed me.
The given reason is that it is "not a real question". So, apparently "it's difficult to tell what is being asked [there]. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form."
Okay, sure, fine, that was perhaps the best fitting reason for closing it. But the poor OP who has only just joined this site! It is not difficult to tell what his question is asking. It is not ambiguous, vague, incomplete, rhetorical. It can be reasonably answered in its current form. Okay, perhaps it is overly broad, but not really. Not enough to warrant closing (just answer the first few so they get the idea - all the questions are basically the same and it comes down to the OP not understanding the concept rather than wanting help with the specific questions). My point here is that, as far as the OP is concerned, their question has been closed for no apparent reason.
Now, I believe the reason that the thread was closed it because the OP has just copied and pasted some questions and not said what he has tried. If this is the case then one of the people closing the question should say so. If it is because it is too broad then say so! Please, please give new users a helping hand rather than slamming the door in their face. Be friendly. Be nice. Be communicative!
Note 1: I am not saying that this question should not have been closed. That is a different discussion. Rather, I am saying that instead believing that closing a question makes everything better, we should be helping the OP understand how to ask their question in a way that will ensure them a helpful answer. As this what we are here for: helping people.
Note 2: This is about a specific question, and yet I do not think this behaviour is localised to this question (how could it be?). I have not tagged it as [specific question] for this reason. However, I do not mind what tags this question has so save the comments for the question at hand and edit the tags if you feel it appropriate.
