I'm a big fan of SE in general, and I've been amazed and pleased that a politics site can exist and work well.
Today I have finally joined and asked my first question here. I've tried to be as objective as possible with the concept and wording, but it may or may not have tripped an off-topic point.
I was accused of asking in "bad faith" and being a crackpot (though the second comment was later deleted) and I think that's a little bit extreme to presume of a new user's first question without first asking for clarification or adding a helpful suggestion or caution.
Each new SE site is different and has its own distinguishing cultures and practices as well as definitions. If my question is off-topic, would it be possible for someone to expand on the complaint there and help me understand what's actually wrong (if anything), how to improve the current question (if possible) and how to avoid pitfalls in the future?
I've tried to further elaborate on my question in comments there, are they insufficient or missing the point of the close voter?
