I just had to do that. I think the reason is that a lot people who post "questions" here aren't really looking for actual answers they are looking for support, justification or proof that they are right. They already have an idea in their head about what the answer should be. Since that is what they look for when they post, they answer back that way. The other big thing is the credits. They have nothing constructive to add or no real thoughts on the issue but the points and the awards for answering drive them to say something so they fake it.
