A lot of the time I see questions that are interesting but having an MHO isn't really relevant because the asker clearly wants to see what the range of opinions is. Examples:
How big an age gap have you dated?
How many people have you slept with?
Have you ever dated someone from a different country?
What's the longest relationship you've had?
These are all discursive style questions where the asker is just curious and wants to see a range of responses. I'd often like to contribute and comment on these questions but I am put off by it detracting from my MHO if I do comment.
I appreciate the irony that this, in itself, is a discursive question, but I was curious as to whether other people felt the same way.
Yes, a discussion qs with no MHO option would be good.
Well... at least you know that it is ironic... there are many reasons for people picking MHO's... could be their expectations... the range... the person... the pressure to do it... etc... I just say meh and sometimes i don't even answer questions that already have a picked out MH... obviously the asker IS satisfied even if I have a better answer.
