Is the best answer chosen by the one who asks a question in HubPages, the correct answer?
I am just wondering what criteria the selected best answer is based upon.
Most of the time I choose one that actually answers the question. A few times I've chosen as best the one that was the most outlandish.

I think once the "best answer" is chosen a question should automatically be closed. Your thoughts?

Does a question with "Best Answer" already awarded make you less likely to answer?I've seen lately that there are quite a few questions with "Best Answer" given out in less than an hour. I sometimes wait weeks before I choose.

Do you think people are getting less hits because they pick a "Best Answer" too soon?I admit, many times I will pass answering a question that has a best answer chosen because I sometimes assume that the asker does not intend to re-visit their question once they pick. I know, answers are...
