I find it quite frustrating if I write an answer and don't receive any feedback. On stack exchange the feedback is designed to work in the following manner:
- By accepting an answer.
- By providing comments.
The recent case which caused me to write this post happened something like this:
I wrote an answer to a question regarding dS vacua in string theory. The question was composed of two parts: one which asked what is the obstruction, if any, to construct such vacua (I answered this by mentioning the standard constructions with links to literature and the present status and debate regarding them). The second question was a misunderstanding of string theory basics. (I would like other users not to edit this point as I want to understand what exactly went wrong here)
There wasn't any feedback regarding the same.
I commented that I would like some feedback on my answer.
The asker deleted the question.
This is highly infuriating to say the least, for I believe the question was an important one and I answered it because I thought the answer should be useful to other people, especially beginning graduate students. At some point of time, continued behaviour like this might cause people like me to move away from the site, which they may not want to do in the first place.
Is there some way which would discourage such behaviour, such as displaying a strong enough message for the asker to give some feedback?
