I've been seeing a lot of references to spam questions as we talk about how to make Answers better. So what makes a question spam?
I've been accused of "spamming the boards" because I sometimes post news stories that I think people might be interested in, or what I consider "conversation starters" that don't always have a direct question in them.
But honestly, then people complain about how slow Answers can be sometimes. If there were no drama/troll questions, no "I've got x-colored thus-and-such leaking from my vagina" and "could I be pregnant/pregnate/pegnit" questions, and no "spam" questions, what would we have?
So is there anything wrong with posting conversation starters, like pics of your kids, news stories about mosquitoes the size of quarters, observations about dealing with aging parents, etc? Personally, I think that's part of the fun of Answers. Giving and receiving information, but also shooting the shit about lots of stuff.
LOL! I agree with you Ballad. I honestly can't believe how slow the P & CE section has been. There's something going on every day worth talking about. And I personally love to see pics of kids or pets. And I like the fashion posts too. Even tho most of the outfits are something I probably would never wear. :p I think like some of the others said, there are some posts that seem to be fishing for something or trying to get you to join something. And there are some others that I swear are posted by juvenile delinquents!
