  • The StackOverflow site is anything but friendly to use. As one poster there put it:

    The only place on earth where you need a doctorate in English to post a question.

    Then once you get your doctorate and post a highly specific, organized question with Headings, subheadings, and a nice bullet point summary clearly stating your question, you get downvoted for your question not being “clearly asked”.

    Even doing such basic things as seeking clarification about the question is discouraged...

  • Paul, the MS team that develops the office.js only monitors StackOverflow and GitHub. The people who moderate here and post such messages are not responsible for that. I've been around the block on this with the team four years ago - that's how they want it. If you have problems with SO take it to the team, don't vent it on the messenger... FWIW I post the exact same advice here when people ask office.js questions needing attention from the team.
