I'm just asking because I got BA from a mom who wanted us to think of her children and provided no information.

  • Any of the above, really. Depends on the question. The best of the best is if someone gives me a new perspectives or makes me think of something in a whole new way. But laughter or originality or good advice or peppery sarcasm are all great, too.

  • I rarely ask "real" questions. I am more of a Would You Eat This? Kind of question answer, so I usually just give the BA to the first person who answered what I would answer, or had a fun little picture.. I like pictures.

  • It depends on the type of question I asked. I've went "eenie, meenie, miney, mo" before to pick a BA. How do you choose when the question is a generic "what's your favorite color?" question?

  • All of the above. Also, if there are a lot of good answers, I will go with the one with the most votes.

    I also vote up every answer as long as the person isn't totally bashing me and as long as the person answering has a legitimate answer. If it's obvious to me that she didn't read my question, I don't vote it up.

  • I don't. If someone is answering my questions just to get best answer, I've no interest in their answer.
