The problem with stackoverflow
Sometimes the people who are there to help
often get carried away and think its important
to moderate HOW you ask your question more than
helping you actually answer your question
Sometimes it works other times it just leaves you feeling
bad like the community is only helping to get points,
or to get reputation.
And im sure they have some excellent people solving problems
and they have a very high score because of it.
It may just be me, but it seems everytime I see a
question on stackoverflow. An answer is nowhere to be found
instead a bunch of people griping over the format of the post.
Or i see questions that don't really fall into a category, more of
a discussion and these sometimes are very VALID conversations
that are closed because they are not QUESTIONS...
it's things like this, that make me think twice before consorting with
your $0.02 is very welcome.
