I have asked this question to know some rules related to Hat-trick in Cricket. Now this user is constantly asking me What definition have you chose for Hat-trick?. I already told him that in Cricket Hat-trick means taking three wickets in consecutive deliveries. But still he is being too subjective and asking me for a specific definition. Why should we use a specific definition when the meaning of Hat-trick is clear? Is this good behavior? Or am I missing something?

PS: I am not ranting. But my concern is that he is not getting my point what I want to say him.

  • Following the convo, it seems like the definition of "hat-trick" isn't universally clear (coming from one who is not knowledgeable in cricket)...and this is why said user asks his question...for clarity's sake. ie) "A hat-trick occurs in cricket when a bowler dismisses three batsmen with consecutive deliveries." vs. "Three successes of the same kind." – user527 Mar 1 '13 at 14:44
  • In a general sense, we are looking for quality. It is much more constructive to resolve misunderstandings/flawed perceptions than to make a user look lazy and incompetent. Opinions will differ, but that does not (and should not) distract away from the objectivity of any question asked. – user527 Mar 1 '13 at 14:59
