I'm fairly new to Ask Ubuntu, but I'm noticing a lot of low quality questions, along the lines of: "wifi doesnt work" & "ubuntu overheating" which are very similar to other questions (duplicates) and/or don't show any research into the issue - notice the bad formatting as well:
- ubuntu 14.04 overheating problem
- Overheating ubuntu 20.04
- WiFi does not work correctly on Ubuntu 18.04
I don't mind if a question is very similar to another question, if the user shows they've done their research and if they include some helpful outputs.
I think that questions like these get removed much faster on SuperUser for example, but here on Ask Ubuntu it seems like there's a lot of people wanting to answer every such question - presumably to get more reputation. Sometimes, there are comments asking for specific outputs, which to me feels is more like spoonfeeding than actual helping.
What do others think? Should questions like these be tolerated? Should we be more strict?
