@Jivings I'm less than 50 and I don't like people closing my questions.

@ThatBrazilianGuy Hi there. Can you elaborate? Which question were you not happy with?
@ThatBrazilianGuy I can't see any questions of yours that have been closed.

@Jivings I'm not complaining about any particular question of mine being closed. But I don't think anyone would like having questions closed. Most of the times they have to be closed anyway, but sometimes the way it is done drives people away.

It’s summer here at StackHQ. Have a flower!

You’re welcome. Now on to some serious work. Can we talk about cultural anthropology for a minute? I’d like to talk about what happens when a community (online or off) gets to be about… oh, three or four years old.

Every community starts out needing to recruit members, so they tend to be very friendly to newcomers.

After a few years, an insider group of old-timers forms. They get to know each other. They know the rules. They know the history and the legends of the community. And it’s only natural to get little bit irritated when newbies show up who don’t know the rules. …

@Jivings I'm quite a newbie on this particular branch of SE.
I don't think I had too many closed questions on other SE sites.
And I do undesrtand, and even can agree, on most cases.
But that doesn't mean I like it.
OK, the only decent option is "learning to ask better questions", I guess

But sometimes this is objective, sometimes this is subjective.
