We strive to be a friendly and rational community here, but the question below
was just closed as "Too broad".
This is a question that
- Has a minimal working example.
- Has a request for changing the spacing in the example.
- Has a frustrated "Please help me to make the rest of my life better" sentence.
On a purely literal meaning of 3, a comment was made by cfr (in jest) that making the OP's life better is off topic and too broad.
Suddenly people voted to close the questions as "Too broad". Since cfr herself didn't vote to close, I would bet that she was in fact being tongue in cheek, and wasn't seriously considering the question as too broad. [She has since confirmed this in chat].
So PLEASE people pay attention to the content of the question when you vote to close. There is absolutely no way in which this question can possibly be construed as too broad except by treating 3 completely literally. And if we can't understand basic pragmatics, well I give up.
Another explanation of this is robo-reviewing which is just as bad. And this is an issue that has been discussed before too:
The last explanation (which may be the correct one) is even worse: people voted to close the question in retaliation for a somewhat inappropriate and frustrated sounding title, even though this was commented on and very quickly fixed before more than one close vote had been registered.
This sort of vigilantism is INAPPROPRIATE. At best the question deserved the initial downvote that it got, but it never deserved being closed.
