Why is it that sometimes when you ask a question all the answers you get are the ones that agree with you, which isnt what you wanted to know??

  • 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.

  • I don't get what you are saying. Most people on here want you to agree with them....

  • Why would you ask a question and not want anyone to agree with you? Are you just looking to start drama with the people who dont agree with you?

  • I know I mean I feel weird for asking someone to disagree with me but I really want to know what the opposite side thinks and why
