Why doesn't GAG remove this stupid character minimum?
Sometimes I want to write witty one liners but I have to type in "filler" which sort of ruins it. People are writing one word answers anyways, all it's making us do is writing that one word.

It's to discourage xper hunting through one word answers to all the recent questions.

I am not sure! I think they increase it! It use to be 1000 but now its 2500!
I agree. If you want to write a witty response and it's not enough characters, i always do a space and several full stops
A couple years ago, GaG didn't have a character limit.
But they implemented one, last year I believe, so as to give people more incentive for writing thoughtful opinions instead of 'yes' 'no'. There were some complaints about that. But I understand where you're coming from. In those cases, instead of "filler" I would use symbols like these: ^^^ *** /// ----
It helps keep the anon trolls at bay. lol hahaha
Then make a space and stop complaining
It's made in order to prevent spam. Personally speaking, I find nothing wrong with it.

I really didn't understand your post.
The minimum character is a move against people just writing yes or no in response to questions.
Learn to write witty two liners.
That's what I do 😭
Because they want to eliminate smart-asses and get people to write pointless essays that make the site look like it's for intellectuals.
I wished they removed the character cap. I got essays to write!
