Why do some people on HP act so condescending toward others? Especially in the question section?


I asked a sincere question recently regarding politics and immediately wished I hadn't. I'll be the first one to admit I don't know something. You never know if you never ask or search for knowledge. I was curious of opinions and facts I would find from here. I received one great answer right away which answered my question from their opinion then it was immediately followed by a snippet from someone else basically putting me down for not being more knowledgeable on the subject. Well, that is why I asked. Why knock people down behind a screen for simply trying to educate themselves?

    Thanks Diana for your response! No long term damage done of course but I would personally never want to deter someone from asking questions or trying to learn something by being rude. Most people on here are fantastic I must say. I agree with you.
