I am new to this stack community. The first thing I was blown away was the number of views each question garners within minutes. Would love to know a comparative stats of the different community from the stack exchange.
I attempted to pick a question and answer it. However, I felt ( plus few user comments add to my feeling) I am more judging the OP or concluding his situation. My counter-argument to that is how can you figure out an OP state of mind from his writing? Was he happy, or just passing his time or has deep pain or in excitement or in anger or confusion or seriously a genuine question`.
How do we know whether I just wasted sometime trying to answer or my thoughts really helped someone?
