We have a question asking for the game creator's intent behind Sorcerers being penalized when they get new spell levels relative to Wizards. There's no problem with the question itself, except that it's acting as a newbie trap.
What I mean by that is that the highest rated answer given is at 0, and that's only because it was preemptively deleted by a mod before it could be downvoted into last year. There's four other answers (two deleted), at -3, -6, -4, and -8. All but one is from a relatively low rep user (the exception is over 2k). The answers in question all deserve the downvotes, as they don't address the main criteria in the question (which I went and bolded a while ago to try and make obvious).
The question asker and the downvoters are not doing anything wrong, but the net result is a question that's acting as a trap for users that don't know better. I don't think that is making for a great experience for those (generally newer) users, but I'm not sure what else can be done to make it clear that speculation is not wanted.
Any ideas? Or is this just a case where everything is working as intended and people just need to learn the hard way?
