I've recently noticed a troubling trend of "attacking" questions that seem to be too elementary. In some cases that is translated to closing a question, and in some cases the aggressive tone of the comments scare the question away. In the last 24 hours, I've seen disparaging comments on at least two questions that seemed 100% fine (and interesting) to me, in one case leading to the elimination of the question (in my judgement, not because there was anything wrong with it).
I fear that people will be afraid to ask questions here. The TCS community has always been very pleasant, and this is often not the case here. Come on, people, take it easy. Asking a silly question should be a badge of honor, not something that one gets scolded for.
