Asked a question elsewhere about race. I got an answers, but 2 users read wayyyyy to much into it and got upset. For those 2 users, the vibe kinda seemed like they don’t want certain questions to be asked.

Maybe a hot take, but i think people should be encouraged to ask questions, thought as long as they’re not like sealioning or whatnot. But it could be difficult to determine good faith questions.

Respond to those people telling them that you were asking in good faith and the community cannot progress with responses like theirs. It’s destructive, and it’s gatekeeping.

Create a post

A loosely moderated place to ask open ended questions

If your post is

  1. Open ended
  2. Not offensive
  3. Not regarding lemmy support (c/lemmy_support)
  4. not ad nauseam inducing (please make sure its a question that would be new to most members)

it’s welcome here!
