DO you ever feel that the MHO is given to the person most flattering to the asker? Perhaps they ask an opinion of something and the Asker picks the MHO based off of which opinion they either like personally or that is in line with their own opinion. So basically you have to totally agree with the asker to get the MHO. Just musing...
Most Helpful Girl
Most helpful answer is given for these reasons :
A - The person who answers agrees with all of the question asker ' s details (This user pretty much confirms things that the asker wants to hear)--This person isn't necessarily the most helpful but the question asker refuses to take into account the great answers he/she has received because he/she only wants their opinions validated. This user has done so.
B - Funniest answer (not helpful)
C - A part of the popularity crew (These people pretty much only select their friends)
D - Person gives it to the lowest mho percentage just to kind (to help give a boost)
A most helpful answer is supposed to be someone who provides a clear , detailed explanation. The opinion doesn't necessarily have to be one you agree with , but it is informative and knowledgeable advice.
People usually don't pick answers based on that criteria.
I think "mho" should be renamed "MLa" (most liked answer) or "Qaf" (question asker favorite) since that seems to be the real reason for picking.
Someone receiving mho usually has nothing to do with how helpful their answers were.
So in that aspect I feel even high mho percentages are somehow flawed because not all answers are helpful.1

Of course there are people who give most helpful to the people that tell them what they want to hear. Then there are people who tell the asker what they want to hear in hopes they will get most helpful. I just quit caring. You'll never reach 50% or whatever. I just try to answer as honestly as I can.1
