i have been on this site for ten minutes and already received this message:
Wait! Some of your past questions have not been well-received, and you're in danger of being blocked from asking any more.
For help formulating a clear, useful question, see: How do I ask a good question?
Also, edit your previous questions to improve formatting and clarity.
is this one of those SE sites where a clique of narrow-minded but self-important people has gained enough power to exert a censorious control over content? i ask because if informed users suggest that is the case i will happily slope off to more favorable pastures and leave such people to continue their tyrannical rule in peace
ADDED this extract from a previous question by @Souta
However, I've been noticing lately that answers to questions have been getting downvotes with no reasonable explanation. And not all of these answers being downvoted were bad at all. These answers were what OP was asking for, except in different words than other answers on a same question; that is how this site works. (These answers were, for the most part, valid; just not OP's preference.)
Then, I've been noticing lately that questions are no longer receiving helpful comments for question improvement. Instead, they are being downvoted without giving OP some direction as to what can be said differently in the question.
I've quickly looked through meta to see if there had already been a question like this, and I did, but in the sense that other users were being harassed by downvotes...
