The following question:
- What are the differences between "bekommen", "erhalten", "entgegennehmen", "empfangen", "besorgen" and "kriegen"?
was not only closed as NARQ but also receievd 4 downvotes at present, which makes it one of the most downvoted questions here.
The question was not really brilliant as it lacked a context to resolve possible issues on translation from English or a dictionary entry. Still, I feel it was not that bad. It could have easily be salvaged by adding some context. It even has a good and upvoted answer.
Other than a snappy comment
"Aus 6 Begriffen kann man 21 Paare bilden - sollen wir die alle gegenüberstellen? Welche Unklarheiten hinterlässt die Konsultation eines Wörterbuchs?"
no effort was taken to salvage this question.
What did we want to say with closing and downvoting? Are a beginner's questions no longer welcome here? Will the site survive after we had chased off all people that actually try to contribute by asking?
