I am a novice at this, and I believe I have only asked a handful of questions in total. The first were all rapidly tagged as "opinion-based", and I can see why. I don't see how to ask for suggestions in any context if that sort of thing is declared to be off limits.
Today for the first time in a long while I asked a detailed question about an electrical wiring error I'd like to understand, and the first answers I received are unhelpful and to tell the truth somewhat angry sounding.
I noticed that there's a warning in my home page (or whatever it should be called) that says I'm going to be locked out if I ask any more inappropriate questions. I am surprised at how aggressive the forces seem to be that would discourage me to be a user here. Am I just being unlucky or are others having similar unfriendly reception?
Honestly, I am not trying to be an irritant, but I am coming to the conclusion that I may as well give up. Or is there a solution?
EDIT: I appreciate the answers and comments so far. I think the first statements from CuriousOne that were stated in a way that seemed to speak on behalf of the entire community were what I found most bothersome, and that is why I reacted negatively and posted this question.
I believe I somewhat follow the logic of placing a question in the most relevant category (here in Electrical Engineering), but isn't there surely a connection between that and physics? Can't the same question be useful in both places? I don't quite see what the benefit of putting questions on hold is in the first place. Why not just leave them out there in case someone offers a response?
I must be missing the point in a major way. I am still confused.
