I don't know if this bothers anyone else, but there are some users who ask nothing but HDIL questions (either because they're catfish or unhealthily obsessed with their appearance). Do you think that there should be a limit to the number of these questions a user can ask? For example only 10% of their total questions can be in the HDIL topic.
And also there should be a once per the entire lifetime of an account for boob/butt/penis size questions, and a once per account limit for "aren't all (insert race) (men/women) (indescribably gorgeous/hammered shit)" questions
Problems I can see with that: --How would one enforce it? If it was a percentage, people wouldn't tag stuff as How Do I Look and questions could be all over the place. --Creating crappy questions to counteract how do I look. If it was 10%, then some people could ask really crappy "how many fingers do you have?" kind of pointless questions just for the sake of filling the counter. --Making duplicate accounts. As seen with abusers like golden-phi-ratio man, anonymity with duplicate accounts make it difficult to track the people down. If there was a limit, people could make duplicate accounts and keep spamming their question.
On a personal issue with it, I wouldn't like it myself. I don't ask/haven't asked any HDIL questions, but I like to know that I have the ability to without limits. Even if the limits are completely reasonable, I like the sense of freedom associated with it.
Nevertheless, I feel a better option is either reporting for spam or ignoring the person spamming HDIL questions. If everyone ignored the person and people they recognize as spammers, they would cease to ask the questions I believe.
I think that kind of question should just be removed. I really think that looks are meant to be judged in person. Besides getting an answer from hundreds of people on the I ternet isn't going to help you with anything in the real world. I find that good questions where people need help for real situations and real interactions, or self help are where the site should be going. Plus I think that they should list every question one time in the main feed, without putting every person who answered or left a comment on every question they answered. It should be one post per question for both the actual question and updates for questions. There is too much of the same thing being shown and it makes me feel like I see the same questions for days and days. And it should be questions from all categories.
I don't think that can be truly enforced. They'll just post it as a Guy's Behavior question or something instead as an anonymous user, and no one will know if they're past their quota. The system could, but then they'll just make a second account through a proxy.
I don't know how common it is for users to ask such questions repeatedly. It does happen but if it's frequent enough to require a limitation I doubt. A percentage is not a good idea either, if someone asks few questions the person would be able to ask 0.3 "how do I look questions" :o
Those questions once or twice from a user is fine. I don't mind. We all crave feedback. I am really tired of the same question about whatever they are obsessing about though. There is feedback from G@g friends and then there's attention-seeking, time wasting, and unhealthy ruminations. So I voted for the limit.
