I have recently posted the following question:
And some of the comments and voting suggest that it is being perceived as a "troll question". For instance there are comments like:
Bad attempt at trolling. Not appropriate. If I had voting privileges I'd vote to close obvious troll thread.
... that's what I thought too, but check out the asker's website, that's a lot of work to put in just for one troll question
Cleary there are people that think that the question is a "troll question" while other people initially thought so but changed their minds after a second moment.
So, my question is:
How should I, the author of the question, react/do if my question is being perceived as being in this "troll question" grey area?
I am not sure if changing the phrasing would help, because I think the cause of all this is the content of the question. My immediate approach was to ask for clarifications, but I am not sure if the other party was fair on the criticism. I thought about deleting the question, but I did not want to and I am not sure if I should wait for this to escalate to the point where the question gets closed.
