How do you feel about people who answer a question with another question?
Do you think when people answer a question with another question this is part of a Socratic didactic form of learning, communicating, getting to the root of the issue? What response do you then have after their answer? Are you taken aback, think it strange, funny or other emotion? What kind of relationship can you build with this person? What does it say about their personality? Are they fun to be with and dialogue? Waiting for your reply.
I think it depends on how often they do it. If someone claims, "The situation in America today is unjust" and they are asked, "what do you mean by 'justice'"? I think it's a legitimate question.
People can also use this method to avoid answering a question though, or just to be annoying; but defining terms is critical to clear thought.

Do you ever answer a question even after the Best Answer has been chosen?I enjoy providing an answer to questions at times but sometimes there are already many answers, and decide not to. Have you ever given an answer to a question with many answers or even though the Best Answer was already picked?
