I will stop contributing answers to this subforum
This may be the source of your confusion and bad experience - back in the day we used to say this is not a forum. In particular, there are no threads. If you notice (try refreshing the page) answers appear in a random order if they have equal votes with top-voted answers moving to the top. Answers accepted by the asker come above all else.
The idea of the site is that each answer should as best as is possible given the question answer it wholly and completely; the more thoroughly the better. You shouldn't need to read multiple posts or pages of threads to put together what is going on: it should be there, in the accepted answer.
Sometimes questions suck, or are impossible to answer. Going off Schroeder's post, it sounds like you answered a question that might sound like:
How does X cyber company know China did it?
and the answer is basically "they dont; attribution is hard-to-impossible". These kinds of questions tend to attract more discussion-y type answers, which might give the appearance of a forum, but the chatter isn't quite in the spirit of the site. We sort of tolerate it because there isn't really a better way to handle the fact some questions just don't have answers, but there it is.
However, this doesn't mean it is OK to post your experience about a handset in 200whenever as an answer to a problem someone faces, because it's not really relevant or interesting. I'm picking on this one example. You did however have some good points (again going of Schroeder's answer):
- Open nature of the android platform (many manufacturers, questionable-to-non-existent patching policies),
- Closed nature of the iPhone platform: better QA on their app store includes.
- Apple hardware and API design is superior in terms of security (security coprocessor for touchID etc).
If you can back these up with some relevant explanations and links, based on facts, you're making a valid argument and this is an answer (provided of course you answer the question the asker asked). But you have to stick to the facts.
Schroeder has actually done you a favour here. The site has a low quality auto-ban filter completely outside of the control of the moderators that will answer-ban new users who consistently post poor quality answers. Moderators cannot deactivate it for you. By deleting your answers, you have avoided the downvote pile-on and subsequent ban you would have eventually arrived at.
But hey, look. Now you know. You can sit back, read a few popular answers, see how the site works and fit right in. Moderators certainly won't hold it against you - there's far too many users for them to remember any except the most problematic of muppets they have to deal with. If you're passionate about security there's plenty of questions to have a go at answering.
