So, here's the story. Someone ends her replies on Stack Overflow with the phrase "Hope this helps". It gets edited out by an admin. She puts it back. It gets edited out again. She insists. The admin deletes the phrase, and her answer gets locked.

Now they are discussing how StackOverflow is horrible, and unwelcoming and dehumanizing.

Would I ever put a "hope this helps" in the end of a reply? Of course not! It's so obviously superfluous. Like someone said, if you didn't hope that helps, why the hell did you write it in the first place? But apparently for someone, the lack of the "hope this helps" is insufficiently polite and unwelcoming.
