Some communities are really strict with their rules. I have a hard time getting into stackoverflow and gaining reputation there. Whatever I post gets rejected or down-voted.
Nevertheless, they strive for high quality content, that is probably the reason behind this.
Two hints here:
- don't take it personal. Analyze what you did and try to improve.
- if that community culture is not a god fit for you, don't worry. There are plenty of other communities out there.
Do you think it is right for people to shut you up just because you posted somewhat different to what they were expected? Even if it was the same under the hood. I was a member of this social media group and I posted a screen shot of my desktop and they they told me that "Your post doesn't belong here" where it is literally a screen shot section of the group. And the fact that I am using the same distro under the hood even if it is not officially supported doesn't mean it is different. Other thing a newbie asked question and literally he was in a newbie part of the forum but instead he got a reply "only those who were ought to belongs here.". Seriously, instead of answering the question and help the guy which is not that difficult really, he answer with what? If you were in my shoes how do you feel?

@amagard - some communities are unique, and those you really don't want to give up. So I recommend not making the mistake I did and providing so much personal information they can find you even under a second identity.
