If you don't know or care, why the f do you even bother?

It's so annoying when you post a question and there's always someone who says they don't know or don't care. It's like...what good are you? What can you contribute to the conversation if all you're going to say is "I don't know or I don't care"? Save your breath for something that you do know or that you do care about it. Jeeze!

  • OMG I've ranted about this SO much! It pisses me off that some of the people here are so obsessed with getting those 3 points or however many it is, that they can't even just answer with something like, "I'm not sure, but I hope you find an answer" and/or bump the question. You get points for bumping, too, ya know! I usually vote down answers like that, because they don't contribute at all, and I'm rarely the only one to do so.

  • Voting down answers doesn't take away points, does it? But I think this whole point/level/awards thing is bull anyway... Not only does it make people post stupid answers to get the points, it also makes people ask stupid questions to reach whatever level they're trying to reach. Personally, I pay no attention to it at all. I answer when I feel like answering, and I ask a question if I actually HAVE a question.

  • They are probably just trying to get their credits for the day. Or possibly irritated with repeat questions.

  • Those people are only after the credits they get answering......

  • honestly it has always been that way to an extent except it used ot be rude comments about it being 'none of your business' or 'Why do you even care'. But now those answers can get voted down or removed so they have slowed WAY done. People just like to run their mouth. Even if it is pointless.

  • It only takes points away if it was anon but after a certain umber of vote downs it is 'removed'.

  • I am sure points plays into it but it happened just as often before the points. I think some people just can't shut up.
