When I joined this site, I felt I missed a lot by not joining before. I really enjoy the questions as well as the answers.
Not to be misunderstood, I am a scientist myself. I always trust in concrete proofs and facts. However, this site is called world building. Which - in my understanding - means you primarily use your imagination. You imagine a world -- or a scenario, and then ask a questions about it.
What I've seen is people who are trying to either convince everyone how absurd/stupid the question is or finding a loophole in the world. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think this is right way to encourage people (especially newcomers like me) to post in this site.
I'm pretty sure that by 2999, the audio/visual style advertising as we know it will be gone and instead ads just be a constant series of battles between the various advertisers' mind-control devices and our anti-mind-control devices.
However, I see many comments in various post that basically say "you're so dumb, let me point out where you are mistaken."
if needed, I can refer to sources but I do not want to make this a personal discussion
What I see here is people are free to ask about
effects of events or world elements, including biology, technology and magic, on specific aspects of that world's societies, cultures, and environment
but they are frequently found not realistic/easily refutable, despite one of the tags say
For questions of Earth\humans that extrapolate beyond available data: hundreds of years at least, thousands commonly, millions preferably.
which clearly indicates you are free as a bird to imagine a world, of whose possibility of reality cannot be discussed.
I am using SO for a long time, and I just wanted to sincerely remind:
There is always a downvote option if you did not like the question. Comments are perfect for asking clarifications. Answering the asked question is a perfect way to go. But commenting or answering "this question makes no sense since this and this are never possible" is not OK.
If someone asked about anatomically correct phoenix, commenting or answering
When a living creature is burnt, there is no way to undo because when oxygen and carbon reacts, then the gas revealed is mixed into air. Therefore, this question makes no sense.
is neither improving the post nor serving the purpose of this very site. I would recommend Puzzling.SE for those who seek posts those are concretely fact-based and without loopholes.
Question: Do you think I am being too sensitive?
