How to avoid haters on Stackoverflow:
1. Add this before your code: "Try the following:"
2. Profit!

Exact same code, but one is hated

    StackOverflow has some algorithms that, if an answer looks odd (too short, too much code, too many links if compared to plain words), it gets flagged and will be checked by users with 2000+ scores (if I don't get wrong). So yes, none of the answers explain anything about what's happening, but the second one has more chances of being downvoted/deleted

    @crisz But the user should be able to think. I mean he saw the answer without comments, threw his comment, but didn't notice that the one just above it doesn't supply an explanation?

    @gitpush no, this is what the "reviewer" see

    @crisz Thanks for clearing it up, I did not know that. I guess I owe that user an apology

    Downvoting the second one is the right thing to do BECAUSE it is the same! The first one was posted on 16 Feb 2016, the second one on 28 Mar 2016.

    In other words, the second one is a stupid cocksucker who contributed nothing of value and even failed to just shut the fuck up. If anything, he deserves MORE downvotes!

    It may also be the COMPLETION:^{} and COMPLETION: NULL difference. To me, seeing NULL looks more correct than ^{} (but then again, I don't know what language you're using or whether they're the same thing)

    Am I the only one wondering why both answers were made by the same person. But who knows, maybe I'm missing something.

    @Fast-Nop It's the same person.

    @cst1992 Then he doesn't deserve just a downvote, but also getting a block of wood smashed into his teeth.
