I don't really see Why. My first post, I just got Bullied. Got a -1. So I will say: I don't want to be part of this community. This is just an EGO trip. The guy signs in. Instead of welcome, some instructions, you right away get a -1, no reason given. My opinion may be bad... after all am not an American, I have a distinct CULTURAL BACKGROUND. Please at least say why you give me -1. No... This is rant. You may came and gave me a thousand of negatives. But I have to ask you. Why be part of this community? I don't feel myself welcome. Stack Exchange, in general, is a bad thing. But when you qualify things outside of science, where your opinion can be verified, it turns out to be just a new form of bulling. Place an opinion that diverges from the dictatorship of moderators, and you get a negative. No sir, I'm out. Not going to give a penny on that, ever. Is this our future? to have our free will destroyed by evil corporations, such as StackExchange? We have to fight you. Not be part of this. What do you think? Probably this will get deleted anyway. We don't need to create a dystopia. This is already one.The single minded dystopia of moderators of worldbuilding, culture, history. Why should you publish a scientific paper? just go to stacksomething and get the "baked truth". EDIT: Suppose Albert Einstein were just ressurected. How much reputation would he have, to start by? and how about the undergrad student that is the number one reputation in the site? how could it not be wrong?
I just found this article, nailed it. It even says "how stack overflow hates new users". Imagine if the entire society was modeled after the reputation system of stack*. Just imagine. https://hackernoon.com/the-decline-of-stack-overflow-7cb69faa575d Three negatives, c'mon, it supposed to be more.
