I have a question about my Politics Stack Exchange post: What does the West gain by not letting Russia swallow Ukraine?
I have checked the resources linked in the closure note and attempted to figure out what exactly makes the question fall under the cited reasons for closure:
Possible lack of "Good faith effort":
- "Be serious". Is the question playful? Doesn't look so to me.
- "Defensible viewpoints": "if your question or answer contains nothing but unfounded assertions". I reckon the mod(s) may have discerned some "unfounded assertions". If so, what are they?
- "Be careful of highly partisan sources". I reckon the Wikipedia isn't considered "partisan", is it?
- "Explain your question". Did I not? Is the question not clear?
- "Avoid bad (opinionated) assertions". Yes, I plead guilty of calling Russia "Mordor". Is that it?
"The primary purpose of this question appears to be to promote or discredit a specific political cause, group or politician."
Just guessing: my questioning of the stance of the West on the war in Ukraine is recognised as an attempt to "discredit" that stance. Right? Whereas I am not supporting this inference, I admit it could possibly be drawn.
But, how to question the objective reasons behind the stance then?
