Wow I am honored to have the comment deleted and a meta thread about it.
First things first. When you delete a comment and want to discuss it, quote the whole comment, not your truncated version.
You were not down voted because of gender, the question was bad, it seemed to me you manufactured the post. If the post had been posted under a female named it still stunk of manufacture. The fact that it was posted under a male name made it look more manufactured. There were tell tale signs that the question was not real, the most obvious of which was that the name on the account of the OP was Tim.
You asked somewhere in there why the down votes. I gave you my reason, and you deleted, and incorrectly played a sexist card. Rather rude.
At every Area 51 proposal down in the area were people can enter questions it says:
Write an actual question that you might ask on this site.
Discussing whether questions are on-topic or off-topic helps figure
out what the site is about, and, more importantly, what it's not
From the FAQ:
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual
problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the
usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
It is bad practice in a proposal and Beta is an extension of a proposal, to write a question that is not real.
Real questions address real problems that deserve real answers. Real questions help people get answers to those questions. When a question is asked that is not real you are deceiving people to come up with answers to questions that nobody has expressed a real problem with. Your asking people to do an academic exercise when they believe they are being helpful.
Questions that are not real do not help define the scope of a site. unreal questions do not define anything, they just add noise that is not proven to be something anyone will ask here. They are simply a waste of time, for the people that answer them, and for the site in whole.
