I asked what I thought was a reasonable and simple question:
"Are there historical examples of "unchartered territory" used correctly?.
It received 2 down-votes and 2 votes-to-close, with no explanation.
The only answer it received made no attempt at all to answer the question, yet it got 4 up-votes.
I can't think of any reason why anyone would misunderstand the question, much less why several (between 4 and 8) people would do so.
Can someone explain what happened here?
