What a witty rejoinder. Well, in my opinion, people might feel a bit diffident when answering questions, or they do not want to express their thoughts freely when they consider the repercussions that they would face from their comments, i.e. a criticism, sue, etc.
But that should not be a straitjacket for asking questions. Asking questions is vital in learning new things and clearing doubts. If you don't ask your teachers when you don't know how to solve a tricky Physics question, who will be the one losing?
