I run into a user on this site who, while technically competent, frequently makes comments that appear intended to demean or shame others.
Here's an example:
One can only speculate as to why a Google link was posted, but I'd interpret it to be something along the lines of "I think your question is stupid, so let me copy-paste it into Google for you." In this case, the Google search contains no relevant results, with hits only returned for outdated versions of PostGIS and for geometry objects, not rasters.
I flagged this comment as "rude" and not only was the flag declined, but the comment was upvoted by the moderator, which signifies "this comment adds something useful to the post."
Does this site takes seriously its "be nice policy", which I think sets a pretty high bar:
If you don't have time to say something politely, just leave it for someone who does.
If so, why is this behavior tolerated and even rewarded by moderators? Am I off-base on my expectation of politeness?
