I've asked 3 questions so far
and they've all been scoffed at or given joke answers. I think I've been improving with each iteration. I've read the FAQ. I've been on SO and every other site for longer than you, I'd think I'd understand the game by now. I was under the impression that the stupid stuff I posted on SO that got closed within one hour would at least last a day on this site. But it doesn't and ya'll are playing popularity control because this site seems to be growing wildly out of proportion to it's actual usefulness.
I'm in it for myself - not to improve the internet. My cactus dies, I ask a programmer what kind of a plant they think is a cool plant a programmer might have, the kind of plant they might sell to a programmer on ThinkGeek if ThinkGeek sold plants. Everyone in the office says Del Fee, everyone in America Says Del Fi, everyone in the rest of the world says Del Fee. I think this is interesting, so I ask about it on this website. I write some dumb code, I think it is funny so I want to see what other dumb code people write - at least as good a question as least useful comment. And asked in the right place, made it community wiki - and people have the discourtesy to try to close it.
P.S. I don't give a hoot about "Jeff's guidelines". I'm not sure what he's thinking if he wants to micromanage the kinds of questions we can ask on a community driven site.
