GeneralIn light of recent discussions on downvoting ... Pin

I just downvoted this one

It fails to explain:

a) what the actual intention was
b) what the problem is
c) what has been attempted (if, indeed, anything has)

And it does that annoying thing of have the title as the text.

The only thing that's remotely in its favour is that it starts with the word "please."

It is, however you look at it, a very poor question. I don't often downvote, but this one really had me thinking "Oh! Do come on! At least make a bit of an effort before you waste the time of people who are prepared to answer questions for you!"

Would anyone regard this as a harsh action?
