If an answer has been hidden due to too many negative votes, do you read it anyway? Why?
Yes, often. Many times a good reason that an answer has been voted down is that it is totally stupid or inaccurate.
But many questions are themselves stupid, particularly the relationship, motherhood, and religious questions, so the hidden answers may be politically incorrect. The weenies and crybabies and religious wackos will have voted them down. By looking at the question, I can usually tell that the answers voted down are probably worth reading.
Many of my answers have been voted down. So take a tip -- read them anyway. :-)
Yes I do, out of curiousity. Sometimes the person makes a valid point. This happens a lot with religious questions - no matter how correct the answers are, someone always marks them down.
I am new here. Please tell me this is free speech at its greatest. The right to not hear what you don't want to hear. Wait, Is that free speech.

Do The People Who Ask Questions Here Read The Answers Given To Their Questions?

Do you read existing answers before you give your own?I wonder if people even bother to check sometimes. I just clicked on a question that had three answers, and all three were worded differently, yet gave the exact same information.

Are you more likely to want to see an answer that has been hidden?Some answers have been repeatedly voted down so they are hidden from the viewer. But there is a link explaining that there is a hidden answer and asking if you would like to view it. Doesn't this make you want to see the answer?
