Not 30 minutes after posting it, I’ve got a message saying that my post “was flagged as off-topic : the community feels it is not a good fit for the topic, as currently defined by the title and the first post.”
I have no qualms with people discussing the technical merits of anything I contribute, but I am entirely sure that what I posted was 100% on-topic.
So my question: is this one of those communities where contributions from new members are stack-overflown into oblivion like, say, Stack Overflow, by established members who abuse whatever self-moderation tools provided? Should I just walk away?
@fjmac I am the one who flagged the post as off-topic. The first couple of paragraphs seemed to be on-topic, but the rest (i.e the long code example) seemed to be more about writing code for a specific code use-case.
After reading the post again, I can see what your intent was and have re-listed the post. Sorry about the quick reflex of marking it as off-topic.
