This is in relation with the behavior of the Original Poster of this question: How to automatically hyphenate before sending to a device?
Apparently this ebooks.stackexchange site has been in existence for two years and two months, at the time of this writing. It is apparently starting slowly, and I have been trying to contribute to its attractiveness, with whatever knowledge and time I have, since I think ebooks are a very important topic, technically and culturally.
Contributing takes time, as I know from doing it on other sites. It also takes many forms. We are suppose to use this site keeping in mind that questions are never only for the asker, but are to be an available resource, together with answers, for future users interested by the issue. Hence it is important that questions be clear and informative. This is why questions are supposed to show some research effort, and to contribute whatever knowledge the asker has already gathered on the issue. It helps future users, and it helps focus answers.
Furthemore, it is always hard to know whether a missing or apparently inconsistent information in the question is due to ignorance by the asker, or carelessness on his part.
Of course the same holds for answers. Answers are not always complete answers, but are supposed at least to contribute data to a partial answer. Partial answers are particularly fair when a question has remained totally unanswered for 6 months, and when the comments indicate that it is not even clear to some users.
This is precisely the case for question How to automatically hyphenate before sending to a device?. And the 7 comments are evidence to its lack of clarity. The OP takes as an excuse the fact that English is not his native language, but he clearly masters it well enough (BTW, it is not my native language either).
The OP asked a very terse question, that was not even well phrased. He did not show any research, and even withheld what information he had on the topic, as proved by his later comments.
Being interested in the issue, I did some search on my own. In my answer I provided more explanation that should have been in the question (but I thought it would be editing it too much), and that the OP had not bothered giving despite obvious misunderstanding and explicit requests in comments (but it was not clear at that point that he knew that).
I also gave a reference to a tool that did at least part of what he wanted. He also knew about that tool, but gave no hint.
Finally he criticized my answer in a comment, which is fair enough. However I told him that his question was not up to standard, and that my answer was a consequence of that.
So he concluded with a rude comment, and downvoted my answer.
I personally never downvote, because I think it is useless in all non obvious cases, and often unfair. And obvious cases are ... obvious, and probably better handled by flags. I believe in discussion.
However, I think the behavior of users like the OP of the question I am discussing is detrimental to the site. He contributes nothing and discourages arrogantly those who try to contribute.
