A bias against difficult questions is one thing, suppression them is totally different and that occurs
It's one thing to farm "internet points" from easy questions (my highest voted answer is "what is a sine wave" ??? ) and hold out for interesting questions.
However, what isn't fine is when regulars vote down valid questions and vote to close valid questions simply because they do not understand what is even being discussed
I am using this as an example (note there are others) as I am extremely disappointed by the regulars to this site. Voting to close because "Opinion" when it is a power and control technical question. Disappointing, really... I expect a lot more from people here.
Need help with simulation of three-phase rectifier with hysteresis controller
I think this site needs to ask itself... does it want to be a collection of rehashed questions around "what is a voltage divider" or does it actually want to collect answers..
So lets see...
to vote down a question you need a MINIMUM of 125 points to VOTE down and there are 12190 meeting that criteria. HOWEVER... you need 3000 points to be able to vote-close and there is 989 users meeting that criteria (ie regular type users).
If one of these 989 think such a question is 1) Opinionated 2) not suited here then EE.SE has a serious problem and the rewarding simple answers to attract those who only know simple questions has turned this place into the 5 monkeys experiment
CONGRATULATIONS moderators and Stackoverflow, you have changed this place into a zoo
