Why is the "Question of the Day" always something trivial?

Why not pick one of the thought provoking debate questions?

  • I guess they want to avoid drama!

  • Maybe it's a random pick? Otherwise, I would think it's to avoid drama, as well.

  • Because thought provoking often means controversial or open for debate, which (as I've seen all too often here) turns into a snarky, ugly scene with lots of mama's going toe to toe with other verbally, before it degenerates into a lot of name-calling or other juvenile and totally inappropriate behavior for a group of grown women.

  • Maybe because that's what the debate groups and stuff are for? Just a guess.... It's something everyone can answer and nobody gets offended (well...I would imagine very few) so those of us who come here for fun, not fighting, can participate?

  • I've often wondered that too, but the other ladies have a good point!

  • I was always under the impression it was random, but maybe older is on to something.
