That said, I think that in many situations where it’s been employed, the OP can actually find more success asking there.
I've not seen this, I've only ever seen it on poor quality questions that would get closed on SO in minutes.
I've been training myself to just ignore the message as I think that is better than telling the person off
☝️ Makes sense, we're all busy, posting stackoverflow takes more time than ignoring them, plus there's nearly 20K people in general, someone may want to engage them. Give them a chance to.
