Actually when you view it differently, you'd notice that in some questions, users post trolling opinions which is not related to the question but get upvotes due to his/her sense of humor rather than actually helping the asker. So the users who genuinely wants to help wouldn't get MHO.
I voted No, because there's already a nasty clique on here that basically tries to turn this website into a high school popularity contest. I also have to agree with what @yaddayaddayadda02 said. Often the truth is politically incorrect, and will hurt people's feelings.
Most helpful is whatever is the best at giving needed help to the Asker. Often that is not what gets the most votes for logical answer, or funniest answer, or best stated answer, etc., which is what usually gets the votes. On the other hand, the Asker often picks the answer that gives hi/her the freedom to act the way they want, rather than responsibly.
I don't think that would be a good idea at all. Most of the time, the answers that get the most up votes are not the most helpful or genuine responses. It's usually just the "funniest" or most sarcastic answers. The Asker should definitely be the only one who gets to choose which answer was the most helpful for him/her.
I don't think that. The MHO is for most helpful opinion. It's the most helpful opinion for the ASKER. Not anyone else. That is why the Asker is given the option of choosing. It's not for popularity. If it were that would be a disaster.
No. cus alot. of. trolls and people vent on questions so would be unfair to asker especially. if. they was being insulted by a group of. people but if people were giving constructed advive and gave detail. they should get it lol
