Hello @Lilienthal. Yes, I had second thoughts about it...
 
Hi @PacificDrive. I just wanted to apologise about my reaction on your question.
I reacted a bit harshly and realised that it's not my place to make a judgement and I shouldn't fault you for simply asking the question.
I was editing the question and about to reverse my downvote and comment when you deleted it. :)
Would you mind undeleting the question, assuming that you're still interested in answers?
 
No problem. I appreciate it. I deleted it because if I thought that if someone like you (I value your high rep) reacted so abruptly probably I could not hope that someone directly involved will see it kindly.
 
Nah, my reaction was misplaced.
 
Yeah, this is was I am afraid, that their reaction will be even more misplaced! :)
We are good, no worries, as mentioned I had second thoughts about posting this question to begin with.
Thanks for reaching out though!
 
I'm writing up an answer at the moment. Admittedly your question is a bit naive but most of the questions on our site wouldn't exist if common sense was really that common.
Do you want to undelete the question?
 
10:40 AM
OK. Will do.
Undeleted.
 
Cheers.
Glad I caught you before you closed the site, I'd have hated to think that I scared you off. :)

@PacificDrive I've submitted my answer and left a comment pointing out that I think your question has value (as you got a downvote from someone).
My opening phrase is a bit harsh but I think the post itself is intended to show you why this would be a bad idea. It ran a bit long so let me know (in a ping here or comment on the answer) if anything is unclear or overly critical.

Q: Does the rejection tag cover candidates rejecting a job offer?

LilienthalWe have a rejection tag with 20-odd questions which for the most part seems to cover the typical scenario of a hiring manager rejecting a candidate for a job. But should this tag also include questions from the other side, i.e. a job candidate replying to the hiring manager to reject a job offer?

@RichardU I'm kind of surprised that has no delete votes tbh
 
3:17 PM
ok @Lilienthal you convinced me to write an answer to one of those questions :P
 
3:49 PM
That was the general idea. :)
