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.

    • No, if you read what I said it's because I like to write short, witty responses occasionally. God, you are the dumbest person on this website, it's like a 12 year old on your account.

    • What? Well thanks! <3 (▰˘◡˘▰)

  • 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's made in order to prevent spam. Personally speaking, I find nothing wrong with it.

  • The minimum character is a move against people just writing yes or no in response to questions.

  • Because they want to eliminate smart-asses and get people to write pointless essays that make the site look like it's for intellectuals.
