I know that asking questions in chat is bad, discouraged, doesn't give proper chance to clarify doubts, bypasses quality control and undermines the purpose of the site itself.
But could someone, ever been in that situation, otherwise observed something over the years of participation here, shed light on the "reasons" for the same?
I personally, feel that educational (stark contrast with technical sites) nature of the site has something to do with it, but I am receptive to alternative reasons.
pre-emptive note: This is not opinion based just like questions which try to understand the mentality behind downvotes, or review edits which slip through or other holes in the network's working where none other than our peers let undesirable things slip through.
If we reach to some conclusive answer which might point out fault in our system, remedy can be initiated. If it's beyond the site's functioning, we can do what can be done, as in the past to divert posts as the last resort.
