Since I haven't downvoted any of those 2 Qs + this Q, probably I can say in neutral tone what went wrong. BTW, I have in fact upvoted your Q1 & this Q, as I find it good. You may also add How do scriptures describe ideal Sanyasi, which is luckily upvoted.
... is in nature of the pattern:
Which/What/How scriptures say ...
--> You are not really asking anything!
When some people ask such Q, they are just asking for "information" instead of "knowledge". Ofcourse people can have correct/incorrect information/knowledge, but at least in case of "knowledge" one has a chance to be creative and put own thoughts. In case of "information", you are just asking them to Google about the claims made in Q.
Scriptures are for backup & reference, not the primary thing. Interesting part is how one interprets rightly or wrongly.
For example, how would you feel if I have forgotten my way and ask you:
Which map among Google/Bing/OSM/Yahoo will give me the shortest path?
What is the shortest path?
Or, if I am thirsty and come to you:
I am aware of water, coke, pepsi. Which drink will ease my thirst?
Can you plz give me something to drink?
You may find above analogies stupid, but that's what many of us feel when someone asks such Q.
Are you concerned about "who said it?" or "what is the truth?"
This can be a secondary reason, but putting for the records.
In above kind of Q, all the claims are listed with probable scripture link. And then it's asked "which scripture?". Some people may feel that, if you have already some scriptural references then why are you asking for 2nd set.
Personally I feel such Qs are meant for showcasing knowledge as there is no blog facility in SE sites. The asker may not really want any answer!
What I described is just 1 possible perspective, upon which you shouldn't be judgemental. There might be different reasons too.
Regarding downvote for this Q, is (little weird) meta.SE style to show disagreement. Reputation is not changed with votes here.
