Do you think or question a person's intelligence/stupidity?

Asking the 'questions' the way they have been coming on here, 20 minutes, 14 mins., 11 mins., 9 mins., 8 mins., 5mins., 4 mins., each question pretty much is representing a minute or 2 and most are coming in from every which direction. Not that they are all happening at once but it seems they are.

so...what is the purpose of most of these indiscriminate questions of lately? What is the purpose of these you are asking?
Why do people want to know what kind of socks you wear, what time you do this or that, how you are, what do you feel most insecure about your s/o?

Alot of nonsense

  • The only time i question a person's intelligence on here, is if they write like a 5 year old. Otherwise, i don't have nearly enough info about them to make that judgement call.

  • I must be stupid. I didn't understand the question.

  • Most moms want to get there "to do" list done. Everyone is a little CRAZY for Credits. ;)

  • I just do not understand how this would have anything to do with their intelligence. I just see it is someone trying to fill their answers quota.

  • To each his own. I'd bet some moms are curious, others are trying to get points, and maybe others are just bored. I've never questioned someone's intelligence by the questions they ask, unless they are really poorly written and I can't understand what they are asking. Even then I just move on.

  • My guess is people are trying to finish their "to do list".

    I find it annoying too sometimes, but then I log off and don't give it anymore thought.

  • Maybe a bunch of newbies trying to get points or a bunch of people ready to level up.

  • I also don't understand the intelligence thing. I agree it's just people trying to fill their quota.

  • It's the points. They're trrying to get points in order to increase their level on answers so that they can get more "features" such as the ability to post anonymously, or recategorize a question etc. The answers section is generally one big game and less of a section to gather information, all thanks to the point system.

  • Because they want points.
