When Can You Say a Discussion Has a Sense?

I see to it that my discussions posted here have sense and they're not about self-pity, bragging, or the like. Recently I posted about winter, about hibernation. I did it for I am not living in a country where there is no winter. I am too curious to know from the horse's mouth on how they do during the cold season in their place. And I want to confirm on what I have seen from movies on the style of dresses, the manner they do protect themselves about the effect of such cold weather. I have heard about frost bite, about hibernation, among others. With such post for I am not from Canada, from America, it is a senseless discussion. It doesn't need to be discussed for it "makes no sense" for I am living in that area. Does it make no sense why I raise that question about winter, about hibernation? Have I not the privilege of posting it? I just want to know if I am wrong. This is not the point to stir everyone's ire. I want to be clarified once and for all that I what I have posted has "NO SENSE". I quote this user: "It makes sense if this discussion was posted by a person who comes from a cold place." My post:

That comment doesn't make any sense to me. However, your post does make perfect sense as you live in a place where it's always hot or wet. People don't hibernate in winter, but I know some that would like to as they really aren't fans of winter. However, we carry on as we always do, one day at a time. This morning is particularly cold where I live and I even saw some snow flurries this morning. It won't amount to anything more than that, but it would be nice if it would.
Thanks for clarifying this thing. I put it simply on the last statement on my purpose what I need some info about this. Yes, I always hear about winter. I see the movie characters on what they wear during that wintry day. I am simply wanted to hear from anyone here like you who are experiencing this kind of cold weather. He put a gag on me why should I ask about it for there is no winter in my place.

Sorry, it seems that you minded my response to your discussion about the hibernation. I did not mean to any offensive. Even if it will never snow in my city, but I can still talk about the snow as well as you talk about the hibernation It may be a communication misunderstanding and I don't want to upset you. So I'd like to say it clearly here.
It was clear in your post that you just wanted to know how people who live in places where there is winter manage their winter. Don't mind that user. At least, all the rest of those who live in a place where there is winter told you how.
Thanks for the comfort and encouragement. It's very clear as I pointed it out. I want an info direct from the horse's mouth. Those people who live in that place where there's a winter. And I am happy that those who responded are real and give me the right situations without insult and mental reservation. I am very grateful to them and also of your concern and support.

Someone said to you mean things about your post? I know I commented on that post and had no problem with it at all explaining how I dress warm etc. If you have never been in this kind of bitter cold weather you won’t know what it’s like and that’s fine doesn’t hurt for us to try to describe it for you so you can feel like your here too.
This virtual communication we have had is like we're talking each other in personal. You have described vividly the situation. I could visualize it. How I wish I could experience it too. Thanks so much. I do appreciate how you tell and describe everything about my query.
Seems like an odd comment. Maybe translation to English or the comment was directed to "how's winter?" = not making sense because lovely tropical climate does not know winter so how can you know winter, not making sense ha ha. Hard to know what the person was thinking making that comment. But I understand your curiosity and having curiosity is good. You are not wrong to post.
That has made me confused. The premise of my discussion or query is on winter and on hibernation. It is because my country doesn't have the winter season. My discussion has no sense and it would be better if I live in that particularly country where winter is one of the seasons. He is out of context. I am asking question on the situation especially those who are really experiencing it.
