You guys are gonna hate me but, I took the recent survey and one of my comments was about the quality of questions. Felt like I had to sort through too much junk to find something that someone really needed help with. I love chatting with you all too. It's kind of a double-edged sword. Let's give things time, to reach a happy medium. Peace-

Not saying your query was junk candybar...

I don't hate you. I also took the survey and expressed my frustration with having to go through so many idiotic teen age romance, Justin Bieber, am I pregnant etc. to get to a decent question worth answering. The argumentative questions and questions that are really opinions in thin disguise also annoy me, as do the "questions" pushing a particular Religious point of view.
I don't care about people chatting in comments though. That doesn't affect me. I don't have to engage in it unless I want to.

I also took that survey and said something about the quality of the questions ! I sometimes would spend an hour and not find one question to answer ! I feel the same about the comments ! Sometimes , I like to talk some , and others I just stay away from ! jsm36 and JD , you both have real good points !

It falls under polls. Maybe you should remove that category

If you noticed..the community guidelines has been revamped. (I guess the Ask mods are being more strict now). =/

My question about pizza was deleted half an hour ago. I feel your pain.

I'm sure your last question about pizza wasn't violating the community guidelines or anything.

Oh No ! Not again ! So many questions and answers are being deleted that I can't keep track of how many times , I've seen this ! There are so many gray areas in the Guidelines now that it takes about three times to read them to understand ! I'm afraid to ask anything ! They to CLARIFY the Guidelines !

Ask guidelines are determined by Ask and staff so that makes your question about the type of question to be gone forever irrelevant opinion.
