No, I don't answer just to rack up a number. So many of the questions are so mindless that answering them would be an insult to what I hope is SOME intelligence I have. But many are truly thought-provoking and answering them might be my contribution to someone else's thinking. I certainly know that others have introduced me to perspectives I hadn't considered.
I answer questions I find interesting or compelling and I try to give a good answer as much as possible. Sarcasm and joking not withstanding...
I answer them cause I wanna answer them LOL
i do it to help
I answer questions, according to what I think when I see the Q. If nothing comes to mind, I don't bother. Best answer is nice, because it feels good to be acknowledged. Racking up numbers is not even in the back of my mind.
ether or both...
Answer the best I can and give my opinion and to help others
Answer q&a with what comes to mind at that moment...
I answer questions to help people. Nothing more, nothing less.
just to confuse the masses
I usually try to lighten it up with humor. Example: Someone asked "Have you ever been homeless?" I replied If I was ever homeless I would put bubblewrap around my cardboard box as an alarm system.
I answer questions because they are worth answering. This one barely made the cut. :-)
I answer and ask questions as a social activity no more no less
I answer as many questions as I can answer
I was looking for best answer but now I just like the conversations the questions start.
