After asking this question (my first post here, by the way):
Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by search engines?
...I was met with a comment from a moderator that indicated my question may not be up to snuff with the standards of this site, based solely on the content I used as an example (see question for reference):
Is that content an actual example? – John Conde♦
@JohnConde: No it's not a real example. It could be, but theoretically it could be anything. Why did you ask me if the example content was real or not, does that have any bearing? – Madmartigan
I asked because if it was it would definitely answer your question making it a low quality question. But it didn't so your question was a high quality question. We like high quality questions. :) – John Conde♦
I left a couple more comments and never got a reply, so I'm wondering a few things. In the context of the question I asked:
Why would my example content being a real example make the question easily "answerable"? If this is true, what would that answer have been?
Why does the question merely being "answerable" mean that it is low quality?
I'm not new to Stack Exchange, but I am new here, so I may just have a fundamental misunderstanding of what this place is all about, or perhaps there was something about my question that was borderline. I believe it was also re-tagged inappropriately by the moderator, which led to further confusion on my end.
Can someone clarify any of this?
