Earlier today I posted this question, which has since gotten two downvotes (both of which were received after the two edits I made for clarity). I tried examining the question myself but was unable to find anything wrong with it.
As such, I would appreciate any input pertaining to how I could have done it better.
Addressing existing criticisms:
Some criticisms that were received as comments in the question include (1) why I couldn't just use multiple words and (2) that the question was trivial.
I'd argue the first point is not a valid fault with the question because single-word requests are one of the most common topics on this platform and it's not like I was asking for a bizarrely specific concept. For the record, I did provide an explanation as to why I wanted a single word, but the impetus for a question shouldn't impact it's validity.
The user who made the second point apparently did not understand the question as the suggested "obvious" answer was not valid.
