This isn't a complaint; I'm just trying to understand what's going on with this site, which I joined only 2 days ago.
My first answer, The usage of "would have", received a comment effectively saying I'd plagiarized another answer. That other answer began with "Actually, the answer came to me first and then Google searching this question followed. When somebody has in in their destiny that if a certain environment happens, they would …", and I didn't even bother reading the rest of the incoherent block of text, much less steal its ideas.
My second answer, Flying since numbers/for a number of years, quickly received 4 down-votes and a useless comment: "The answer's right but the reasoning is way off the mark.". If an answer is bad enough to immediately get 4 down-votes, surely at least one of the down-voters should indicate what was wrong with it. As it is, if I weren't already well involved with other sites, I suspect that I'd leave and never bother with Stack Exchange again.
As I said, I'm new to this group, so my answer may very well be worthy of 4 down-votes, but it would be nice to know why, so I can correct or delete it.
My question is, is this typical for this site, or did I simply encounter a bad day?
Update: I now notice that one of the answers to the second question had a "discussion" that has been moved to chat, and one of the others is in the middle of another discussion.
(I'll guess that this really is a bad day (or at least the result of a not-so-well worded question).)
