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.
To the person choosing,Yes. To the rest of us, not necessarily. I think our tendency is to pick one that is closer to our own ways of thinking. Plus we tend to think our answer is the best, simply because we wrote it. All in all, I don't like to pick one because once you do, people lose interest in answering the question.
