I want to give thanks to all users, which have down-voted my critical remark for this question: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques... For me it is another evidence, that many things in this forum are going wrong. Here are some people, which are not able to live with profound statements of other experienced forum members with another views of modern software-systems like Fedora. It is very disappointing, that this forum work in this manner. Nobody should wonder that some people want to get deleted their accounts. I will promise the community to stay here and I will be critical in the future too. I will do this for Fedora, which is one of the best OS for everybody. Come on, down-vote me again!

I sense some serious sarcasm -- you are pretty clearly upset. I didn't downvote, but I can guess why people did. This site isn't meant to be a _forum_, exactly. It's meant to be a question and answer site. In order to have it be most helpful, and not turn into Yahoo Answers, it's important the the answers actually answer the question. Your answer is more of a comment about the benefits of Flatpak than something that explains why other GNOME components depend on it. I don't think the downvotes have any particular malice.

That said, this site in practice is more forum-y than, say, Stack Exchange, which has a very clear culture around that "no discussion!" attitude. That's not necessarily the right fit for Ask Fedora, and is one reason we're exploring other options, like https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/
