    I might not be popular saying this , but i complain.

    Too many questions are closed down that appear to me as good questions.

    I think math is more than just yes/no questions and if you dont like a subject you can ignore it without closing it.

    For instance my last one " Extended Prime Number Theorem " deserves much better imho.

    For convenience of the reader, the link to said question .

    Mick, you've been here for an hour, and you're telling those of us who have been here for years what this website is supposed to do? Please take a little time to learn the purpose of this website. It's not intended as a place where anything goes, so long as there's some mathematics in it - it has a very specific and focussed purpose, and your question, while a very good one, is as much a mismatch for this site as it would be on a site devoted to discussion of Agatha Christie murder mysteries. There are perfectly good sites where your question (if you put a little more work into phrasing it a little better) would be welcomed with open arms, e.g.,

    To extend Gerry's words, avoid multiple question marks.

    There's nothing more repulsive to the reader than seeing a question with a title such as:

    Seen this???!?!?@3?!?@#?!?!@?#4/!@#$?!@#$!%!@#$?!@34 OMG!!!!! SO AWESOMEEEEEEE!!!!!11111oneoneeleven

    Of course I am going way way beyond what you did, but two question marks is about 200% of the reasonable amount of question marks. It makes the readers open the thread for the sole purpose of closing it.

    We already had a user who characteristically put spaces before punctuation...

    I hope this is not a trend!
