I posted the following on Meta Stack Overflow, and I believe that there was a better word that I could have used rather than "a little too harsh".
Considering that my post fails all but possibly one or two of the low quality post heuristics, is something malfunctioning or is the detector perhaps a little too harsh?
Essentially, I believe that there is a word that is more precise in its definition, perhaps an antonym of "tolerant", that could have substituted in as "perhaps too [insert word here]".
The definition of the word would be something like "erring on the side of caution, possibly to a degree of excessiveness"; it would be beneficial for a Secret Service Uniformed Division agent to be [this quality].
I've considered "cautious", but I don't think it carries the right tone for that context.
Does anyone know of a better word?
