I saw http://italian.stackexchange.com/q/8153/2873Naming a male pet Monkey posted some days ago. With my reviewing experience, my immediate thought was it will be closed. It's not clear, and the way it was written meant any answer was as good as any other, like a survey question.

Then the upvoted response from @DaG confuses personal opinion with why the downvote mechanism exists (see the [help] Vote Down pageVote Down page:

I checked out the ReviewReview pages and found an astonishingly low number of reviews. My questions are

  • Was the questionquestion reviewed, before I brought it to the attention of @Denis and @Dag?

  • Was my answeranswer reviewed, since it was a first post? If it was reviewed then one would expect some feedback, and a welcome message as is frequently done on other sites.

  • Is it normal on this site to be so unwelcoming to new members?

  • Are these cultural differences? I notice @DaG is Italian, but @Denis does not disclose his origin (in his profile - as he points out in his answer below he links to such information). Of our moderators @Charo♦'s location is Spain, and @egreg♦'s location is Italy. I am Australian.

My principle goal here is to point out the unsatisfactory way this new member has been treated, and what I believe to be a weakness in the way this Stack is being run, so that these can be addressed. As I said in my commentcomment, I think this is bullying behavior. It's very disappointing, and I expect better of a Stack Overflow site.
