If you ask a question and vote up those who answer you...

Do you not vote up the ones who post but never answer the actual question?

I was just going through and voting up everyone that answered my questions, then I started to think... If they don't pay any attention to the actual question and simply post something off the wall, why should I vote them up...

Who else ignores the non-answers?

  • I do! I do!

  • I do that, too. It's annoying when people don't read the whole question. At least acknowledge areas of the questions you may not know the answer to if you're going to answer! I hate when you ask a question, get several answers, but not one actually answers your question.

  • Me too!

  • Eh... it depends on the question. If I am really looking for a good insightful answer then no I don't vote up those that don't really answer the question. But I do when it is more of a fun question or a opinion question.

  • I do sometimes. I mean if it is completely off the wall or just not really on subject.

  • I just do whatever I feel like at the time.

  • it depends on if you're voting up because you want points or because you like good answers. I generally give everyone who answers my questions a vote up. But I will ignore, rude or bad answers.

  • I ignore them most of the time. If I ask the question, "What's your favorite kind of soda?" and most people answer with things like, "Coke," "Pepsi," etc., then one or two answer with "I don't drink/like soda," I don't vote those up, for example.

  • I do and I don't. It depends on how much time I have and how they answer.
