When you ask a question here, are you looking for answers, or an argument?


This section of HP was designed to gather information and opinions, to spark ideas for new Hubs. But sometimes, I get the feeling people ask questions just to provoke arguments. What do you think?

    I don't, either, but some days, it seems like this section should be titled War. Thanks for answering.

    I confess, I often back away from answering some questions as well, purely based on who is asking. Thanks for answering!

    I think the thing to do is not take answers personally. People can give their opinions and answers, and I can choose to accept them and move on. Thanks for answering!

    Yes, when the discussion turns to personal comments about the other people answering, I confess, I walk away from the discussion. Thanks for answering!

    Thanks for answering. My feeling is that I should answer the question that's asked, and leave it at that. If I'm inspired to write a long, wordy answer, perhaps that's best done in a new hub.

    Debate implies sticking to the original question. All too often, answers and comments turn into personal attacks. Thanks for answering!
