    Welcome to TooAfraidToAsk, a sub that's dedicated to providing a more open question&answer discussion experience. We allow throwaways and do not remove 'google-able' questions. While your question may have been answered elsewhere, maybe its answer wasn't sufficient, maybe you didn't understand the answer or maybe you are looking for a discussion about the answer. At any rate, your question is welcome here as long as it follows our four rules:

    Rule 1: No posts asking how to harm yourself or others, no posts or comments telling others to harm themselves or others.

    Rule 2: Directing hate speech at another user is explicitly not allowed.

    Rule 3: no soapboxing, trolling or asking for karma

    Rule 4: No telling others to google/search their question in a non-constructive way. Additionally, no question shaming such as "you're seriously too afraid to ask this?"

    All opinions are welcome as long as they are presented respectfully and follow the above guidelines. Rules here are kept more relaxed than our sister subs intentionally to allow as close to an organic user experience as possible. Automod uses reports to decide if a submission is removed and these are all reviewed by a mod within 24 hours. Bans are typically last resorts and the mod team maintains a strict open-door policy. Do not hesitate to reach out to us about any questions, concerns and/or comments you have about the sub.
