Re: Might the very thing that makes it so successful

In most cases* there is one recommended way and style of doing things

That's the typical techno-chauvinist answer that permeates eg. physics.stackexchange and math.stackexchange and makes them particularly unwelcoming to questioners who have their own perfectly self-actualised theories of the universe.

That's the typical answer of someone who gets offended when people say that they are wrong. It's not aggressive to be correct, the actual problem is the aggression of the person who takes offence at being corrected.

PS: Well done on dropping the starred footnote where I explicitly state that I am not talking about anything other than stack overflow.
