Discussion on: Why I don't use Stack Overflow

I use stack overflow alot, it's very useful for any developer. Tons of very helpful people on it. That said, everytime I wants to ask something there I always have to be extra careful to avoid triggering someone. On one hand, u think it's good because it encourages users to do more proper research before asking. On another hand though, it's like your parent or teachers yell at you because you ask "stupid" questions. It discourages people in their search for knowledge.

I don't really know how to fix it, but I think with the advance of AI it should be possible for some kind of pre filter, pre tag questions? Humans are emotional and judgmental. We should not trust ourselves to judge people. Let the machines do that.
