First response to my newly posted question What are the problems related to Trump administration’s targeting of Huawei affecting US/UK relationship? is this comment (now deleted):
Likely just Fake News by the NYT. You shouldn't trust anything they write about Trump.
along with a down vote at roughly the same time.
Every SE site has a different culture and set of norms, so I'm not sure if this is par for the course and an acceptable comment, or if this is considered unproductive and something I should consider flagging as unnecessary.
The question is about a direct quote from "Thomas Wright, an expert on Europe at the Washington-based Brookings Institution" and so I don't see how it is really a comment in any way about the question itself.
