Stack Overflow Comments

Probably not the best for all

This can be great if you are a native English speaker .... any misspelling and you obtain a -100000 or your question locked, the best way to obtain reputation and give + only to some who have English as mother Language. For a more professional service I recommend Experts Exchange.

I'm not a native English speaker, and I don't agree with you at all. Maybe something else was wrong with your questions on StackOverflow? Misspelling should not get you downvotes (and usually doesn't, at least if what you are asking is clear). And mispelling will never get a question locked. If you have an example of that please post it.
