What is the point of the phrasing for "did you laugh and cheer when ____" questions?
I've noticed many political questions use the above format. Politics are already a touchy subject where Hubbers need to be careful not to let debates turn into hateful fights. I can't help but think this format does not help the situation.
Still, getting people riled up is a good way to get views for the question, so maybe that's the true end game anyway. Any thoughts?
I agree. I like to think most Hubbers are professionals capable of thoughtful debate, but political questions (and religious ones) tend to erupt into all-out brawls. Your strategy is probably wisest: better to just avoid those sections.
Brad, since multiple people use this format, I'd have to go respond to several questions; one general question seems more efficient. And I agree debates may not be the focus of HP, but I do believe there are standards we should adhere to.
