I recently created a question on here. Yes, it was my first question on this specific SE site; however, I tried to cater it to the intended use case as close as possible. I decided to leave out some details I thought were not very important, but I seen later on actually would have been beneficial to include after I seen some of the moderator comments.
So I edited the question to include said left-out items, and that tied to to why it was asked here. [Please check it out] However, I am getting flak from a moderator that appears to be misunderstanding my question. I have also asked questions in the comments about changes, but I am not getting answers at all; however, if I rollback the changes, then it is changed back within a few minutes. I decided to ask on Meta because there is a large comment thread already and that does not belong on the question page.
Moderator completely and wrongly assumed that my question was dealing with weight lose at first; even though I never talked about weight lose in my question.
Moderator wrongly assumed that I am asking how eating / drinking this drink (or food from the linked recipe) will effect me. I was neither asking that nor am I concerned about that. I am concerned in how this drink will effect the recipe if I use a different type of fiber drink (or why they say to use this drink in particular). How does that effect the outcome of the recipe. I want to understand this type of fiber to better understand what role it plays in the recipe.
Also, Moderator seems to not understand basic knowledge on what fiber is. Any basic research on wikipedia, medical websites, health websites, doctors, etc... will tell you that there are 2 types of fiber - Insoluble (my point #1) and Soluble (my point #2). The moderator continues to insist on deleting point #2 because of some reason I cannot comprehend.
The moderator says
this is how we handle nutrition questions here - only a very small subset of them is tolerated at all, and your point (2) is not part of that subset. What? I don't get why the moderator is saying that.
Just to give an analogy of the last point. Imagine I was saying the following on a hypothetical SE for Individual people...
To my understanding, my FULL name is (1) Christopher because that is my given name, and (2) Rucinski because that is my family name that everyone in the family, including my relatives, share
I have the moderator state that reason 2 is unacceptable here because talking about your relatives is off-topic.
Therefore, the moderator is editing the question and now the question starts like...
To my understanding, my FULL name is (1) Christopher because that is my given name
As you can see basic, fundamental and factual parts of what was stated before are no longer being said. It also stops readers from understanding why I am asking this question.
