At some point I had a question about the workings of the bash
shift command. I did not find the question / answer on this website, so I looked up the answer and posted my learnings as self answered question.
For some reason this question attracts downvotes and I do not understand why. I get it is a question for which it is not hard to find the answer. But it was hard to find the answer on this site, so I tried to remedy that. As I understand it "Down-voting should be reserved for extreme cases". So what can I do? Can I improve the question? Should I ask for it's removal? Should I just keep it and accept the bad rep?
