I recently posted my first Skeptics question: Does training while wearing weights improve body performance?
I got some criticism towards some aspects of my question and even a down-vote before I edited and fixed with the help of a moderator and it received an up-vote so I thought it was completely improved.
As is, it should be ok, but today a user voted to close my question as off topic, so instead of cluttering the comments section I thought I'd open a meta question.
Now, I'm not new to the SE system, therefore please don't take this as a whining question. But it certainly surprises me that my question is criticized because of the mere presence of cartoons mentions. Because, like I specified in the question itself, my question is not about superhuman stuff. I used cartoons because they were the most prominent claims I could remember of, but I'm sure that everyone has heard about this type of training in their life, because it's mentioned everywhere, from movies, to sites, articles, etc. So I wanted to ask if that kind of training had those effects as everyone claims/claimed.
Plus, a similar question was asked time ago with references from cartoons and comics. So we are either both off topic or on topic, or I'm missing something here. I'm not attacking that question, just taking it as an example; I'd like to know what are the flaws of my question without comparisons, so I can finally improve it to fit on this site because I don't think it belongs to Fitness SE.
