I have a question about my Skeptics Stack Exchange post: How does fasting affect your immune system when you are having infection?
The question is incorrectly flagged as duplicate despite valid clarifications in comments. It seems I am not the only one. But, I can't comment elsewhere due to reputation. I also see a tendency of existing members to try and suppress new members by adding negative remarks unreasonably (I have seen it in few other well researched questions as well) and not even correcting the mistake even after giving valid responses. In my case, I had well researched the topic and as an additional information gave a link to another related question. But, someone marked it as duplicate without even trying to understand the difference. When I added clarification, he removed it from the question, asking me to write it in comments.
All of this is not really helpful and at the end of the day, I am finding some other forums more useful than stack exchange. I hope stack exchange addresses this issue.
