For example, I asked a question a short while ago about marital traditions and whether or not they were out-of-date. I already had a solid opinion on it, but I wanted to see where the general population leaned. I'm incurably curious.
Of course. As a teacher, I did it all the time.

Why would someone ask a question on HP, when they can just google that particular question?
