If a question is lame in your eyes,and considered "MISERABLE" or "POOR",whats the point of letting the QA know this by giving a dismal rating. How about just NOT responding at all to the question or NOT rating it unless you feel it is interesting or better? Does one even receive points for getting one or two stars? And if not,why is it that those ratings are even relevant? Poor ratings are no more relevant than an unrated question...in my opinion of course.
This opinion has developed after seeing questions like,"Do guys like blond hair?" get a whopping five stars...meanwhile,something more significant gets nothing...what gives?
Thanks for the Two star rating guys...it means nothing. :D
lol I always thought it was to let everyone else know the question was lame. All tho, I often click the Qs with low ratings because they're often funny trolls, this one wasn't funny at all... false advertisement.
We encourage users to rate as many questions as possible. There are some really great questions out there that don't have any ratings. As far as incorporating points...we will take this into consideration.
