    Do you ask a Question to get an Answer (factual) or to get an Answer (high comment count)?

    Be Honest!
    Do you use the Question option for Hubbers in order to get a factual answer from your peers, or do you ask them just to get a high count of Answers for rour ranking with HP?
    I tend to see an awful lot of Questions that seem to be aiming at the latter!

    I just want to get an answer (factual) and then I close the question. The other day someone asked "Why would anyone close a question?" I guess the concept of asking a question to learn an answer is odd.

      DrMark- I agree! I guess I asked this oneout of frustration at having so many :entertaining" questions cluttering up my list of readings.

    I ask because I want answers or opinions, and I usually do it in the middle of the night when I'm bored. smile

    I ask a question to get some answers, advice, or a different perspective from others.  However, there was at least one question I asked, quite to my surprise, that got a very high count of answers.

    I like to ask questions because I'm curious, like a cat.
    That's why my friends call me whiskers. =^.^=

      It's a slightly altered paraphrased quote from Will Ferrell doing an impression of Harry Carey XD

    Are you suggesting that some users ask questions just to create controversy or lols?  The nerve of such people abusing this lucrative platform. If they keep it up, we may go from earning $0.0000001 per year to earning only $0.000000000000001  per year on our hubpages questions!  We must stop this activity before we all end up in the poor house!

      I know of not one single hubber who would ask questions simply for lulz and if I did I certainly would not follow them, stalk them or check their daily activity to laugh at their lulzy questions and comments.

    When I ask questions I usually want opinions, or different points of view. Sometimes I ask about how to do something on HubPages. Even if looking for a factual answer, even correct answers can sometime be improved upon. I don't think I have ever closed a question, it doesn't seem necessary as usually people stop answering once it's been adequately covered. BTW, why did YOU ask THIS question?
