If people at SU knew that I'm NOT primarily a programmer/computer enthusiast/computer application professional (in essence, someone who's supposed to know quite a lot of nitty-gritty of computers), I presume they'd be more kind while answering to me.
I'm a neuroscience researcher who's refused to be boggled by the fact that his university doesn't have an IT/CS faculty and tries to use CS Technology for his perposes working, reading,learning, researching about CS/IT single-handedly. Unfortunately, since people assume I'd have some kind of deeper knowledge about CS technologies, the're not so elaborate and sometimes very rude while answering my questions. But, fortunately, once I inform them of my background, they answer me/ explain to me the way an expert of one field 'should', to someone(expert or otherwise) from an entirely different field.
It's a fact that our answers are a function of(among other variables) who/what the questioner is. Hence, should there be some kind of "questioner tag" (or something like that) that'd tell the answerer who/what the 'questioner' is and what sort of answers should better suit their needs?
