The question Why isn't Eris considered a planet despite being the body of dominant mass? received three down votes in its first three hours, but with none of the down voters leaving any clues as to why, what the problem they perceive is, or how the post might be improved in their thinking.
Is this how a Stack Exchange site should work? Or should someone clue the OP in as to where they think the problem might lay?
I did not vote either way but I left a comment for the OP suggesting why I thought it might be happening, but I don't yet see a down-votable problem with the question myself, it's only a guess.
It's not actionable because I'm making behavioral estimations of the voters rather than actionable comments.
- Is this how a site should work? Or when we are pile-on down voting should at least someone clue the OP in as to what might be down-votable and how the post can be improved in their opinion?
- How close was my guess to the real reason(s)? Why are people down voting this question?
