When I start answering a question, your software seems to know what I'm doing, or should. How come you wait until I spend 20 minutes to an hour trying to answer a question, then go to post it and your system says something like "We're not accepting answers to this account at this time...". Can't save it, a total waste of time. I've had a couple of these, and they are very frustrating. I don't attempt to answer many questions anymore, because of this. Please NOT let us enter information YOU KNOW you won't take...

    I agree that should be pointed out before attempting to answer, but you really should rephrase this so that it doesn't look like a rant. That won't help your feature-request to go through.

    @kos If someone is upset because of something, that should be more reason for the site's management to pay more attention to the issue, not less. Don't treat your users like you treat your children.

    @kos That's fair, and I agree that it's not worded in a way that is ideal. However, it's a new user and they can't be expected to know best practices for asking questions. The point I make is that concerns they have should be taken seriously even if they are a new user and even if they do not word them tactfully.
