Anyone feel twinges of guilt about Best Answers?


May be silly, but if there are multiple well-made answers to a question of mine, I may feel guilty about selecting one as Best Answer. Theoretically, we're all professionals and thick-skinned, but I imagine many Hubbers are secretly hurt by "losing out" when they also provided a good answer. Not selecting a Best Answer could also induce anger. Any thoughts? Do you feel bad about having to pick a best answer among several good ones? Is it an outdated concept that should be done away with? My current solution is to randomly select from the best responses, but I'm open to ideas.

 

sort by best latest

    Thanks for the input. I don't mind who gets best answer unless something devious or rude is involved.

    I understand. If an answer as good as or better than mine gets it, I don't mind. Still, there have been times where mediocre answers receive it, and where my answer wasn't commented on by the asker, but others were. That can feel like a slight.

    Oh yea, steel thy soul any who enter the religion or political areas. Definitely frustrating when someone asks something but isn't actually interested in various answers, as they already know exactly where they stand.
