Why do pointless point-earning questions often get more responses then the real questions?

It seems like since we switched to this new answers game that people only seem to really care about either the TMI's or the pointless questions? Have we really given up on helping others mom's? Is this just a big game now?

  • I haven't given up on answering the real questions. I played the point games for a couple of days before realizing that wasn't the way that I wanted to spend my time when I'm on here.

  • I want to add, in my opinion...the points don't mean as much if you don't actually earn them.

  • I try to help other moms but if I cannot then I dont usually leave an answer, however the point earning questions are fun when your bored and almost anyone can answer them :)

  • Sorry, but yes, it is a game to me right now. If a question does come through that requires reflection and sensitivity, I will respond accordingly but otherwise - its the points baby, points!
