YannisRizos asked me to rewrite the question from scratch, removing the partisan retoric. I did so, and asked this question:

Are you safer in a gun free zone?

I provided links to the stories in Colorado about law makers making it illegal to carry a weapon on college campus. But, apparently "sneaking in links to related news stories about the question at hand is not allowed."

What in the world could be offensive about a link to a news story?

    At this point, it's not your questions that are offensive. It's your behavior. – user1530 Apr 9 '13 at 17:24
  • @DA., what specifically about my behavior? – user1873 Apr 9 '13 at 17:29
  • @DA., "but Democrats seem to associated with them" = could you please cite more mentions of this out in the wild? As it stands now, it appears you make that association, but I'm not aware of that being a broadly accepted view" what is funny, is that YannisRizos complains when I link to supporting evidence, and you complain when I don't link to supporting evidence. Impossible to please everyone – user1873 Apr 9 '13 at 17:37
  • What does the question look like now? – Sam I am says Reinstate Monica Apr 9 '13 at 17:38
  • @SamIam, I couldn't tell you YannisRizos is quite quick at deleting entire questions that he doesn't like (instead of just removing the offending "link sharing") instead of closing/editing the question to "community standards." But, I warned about this, you get the community you deserve. – user1873 Apr 9 '13 at 17:52
  • What part of that discussion do you think meets the criteria for a Constructive question on SE? – SoylentGray Apr 9 '13 at 19:23
  • @DA. - yes, I know. Posting true facts that make your political side looks like asses is very offensive. – user4012 Apr 12 '13 at 21:44
  • @dvk I have no idea what you are referring to. – user1530 Apr 12 '13 at 21:46
  • He asked you to rewrite "the question". What question? Please try to remember that this is not chat. It's supposed to be a canonical resource about site policy. Without real-time context, this question is completely meaningless. – TRiG Jun 25 '14 at 10:41
  • @TRiG, the question was about whether women are safer on college campuses without guns than with them. The question was deleted, so I attempted to rephrase the question, but that one was deleted as well (along with the meta ? Asking what was wrong with it). I couldn't give any context to this meta ?, because if I did so I rightfully assumed that it would be deleted ( – user1873 Jun 25 '14 at 15:01
  • other meta questions were previously because they either contained links to give context to the question, or were too politically charged, etc. Don't blame me for lack of context, blame the moderators. – user1873 Jun 25 '14 at 15:02

Politics Stack Exchange is not a link sharing site.

The news story may be tangentially related to your question, but the fact that you made a point of linking to it thrice (in the same question) and your past behaviour on the site made it more than obvious that you were not asking the question in good faith. I've closed and deleted your question, because frankly at this point you are just spamming.

  • are you being purposefully dense? What do you think "link sharing site" means? The original question was deleted, the three separate links were to comments from individual Democrat representatives for why they instituted/supported the ban on guns in "gun free zones." This is the third time you closed a question of this nature. You are hardly acting in good faith. – user1873 Apr 9 '13 at 17:27
  • "This is the third time you closed a question of this nature" = might be time to take a hint. – user1530 Apr 9 '13 at 18:01
