I tried asking the question "Are atheists considered gentile or something else?" in the main forum but was not accepted by the system!

What rule does that question violate?

Edit Below:

I tried it again and this is the message I got :

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because: •Sorry, we can't accept this question.

I tagged it with gentile-non-jews tag

    The Stack Exchange software knows that you're not a Jew and forbade you from asking any questions! :) Commented Aug 9, 2012 at 22:05

We have metrics that doing an analysis of posts for quality. It is possible you got tripped up by this. A few metrics we look at that you can check are:

  • Overlap between the title and the body of the question. The body of your question should expand on the title, so there shouldn't be a lot of overlap.
  • The length of the post body. A question doesn't need to be a novel, but it should be a couple sentences at least.
  • Grammar and spelling. Use sentences. Don't use txt-speak.

    If thats the case, is it possible for the error message to include details of how to fix it?

    @AviD I think they avoid giving too much information away to avoid people cheating the system.
