Why respond to questions and not share information that lends itself to the discussion at hand?
Quite frequently, I'm noticing responses to questions that purposefully add no benefit to the topic. In fact, the answers are oppositional to the question. Out of curiosity, wouldn't it be more beneficial to the community as a whole to just skip those questions and find one of the many other available questions to answer that will invoke relevant insights to the topic? What are your thoughts? Are you noticing this too, or is it just me?
I think everyone can feel free to ask any question they want to. I agree, there are people who don't seem to think everyone should be able to ask any question they might want to ask. I encourage people to ask any question they want to ask. In addition, I agree that if you don't have an interest in or don't like the question that was asked, you don't have to answer it. Why would you answer it under these circumstances? Just look for another question to ask and stay out of discussions you don't like or have no interest in. By the way, this was a good question to ask. Thanks for asking it.
Thanks Brandon. I agree. Will we be in the majority or minority.......hhmmm?

Why do people that don't believe in God, respond to questions about God?Don't get me wrong. I respect and appreciate every response, even if they disagree. That is everyone's right. But I usually don't waste time and energy in things that I don't believe in. Sure, I don't believe in Santa and still...

If you answer someone's question and they don't respond back, is that bad hub etiquette?
