I saw many serious and important questions here and I always try to answer.I know some people might have no idea to give their opinion but at least try to help the QA or show some concern.Sometimes its only me or two other people who answered it.There are so many stupid and useless questions here that get so many users attention.Like what is your eyes color,what is your ethnicity.What nationality are you.Do you like to eat this.Do you like to watch that.What type of music you like to hear.Obviously its not a kind of problem but its more to preference.Last few years when I joined this site I saw many usefull answers and people like to help QA by giving their perspective.I really hope GAG member back to the old track.
Good and accurate observation. Serious questions by nature require more thought and more effort, and sometimes (God forbid) empathizing with someone else and thinking about them. Most people are just looking for an opportunity or just want to talk about themselves; your standard "I have blue eyes, I'm white, I like spaghetti but not with cream sauce for dinner, my boyfriend is weird about..." answers. It can also depend on the mood. I always try to answer serious questions when they arise though.
Well members usually answers questions like " Does he like me? " Or "What can I do to get my lover back?" Or " Why isn't my Crush paying me attention?"
Also people tend to post questions and write a Damn Short story! A ..DAMN ..SHORT STORY...People need to keep things simple, just facts, Who, what,when, where, and why. If they keep their stories under a paragraph then most people will answer it. I personally tackle the big questions with the stories twice a day. Even though it consists of so much feelings and unnecessary details and explanations. I try my best to give the best answers I can due to their situation and the information they provide, even if my answer doesn't really solve their problem, it points them in the right direction to finding it. =D
People like answering these questions to get attention. I agree with you I know several users not gonna say any names that just spam refresh and answer any question in sexuality catagory but nothing in relationships or the more serious catagories. Some people use the internet as a sourceof validation so pretending to be a sex expert makes them feel better. I say let them be happy and the real Gag members can continue to try to help people.
For me, I try to answer what I can. Sometimes the questions already have answers that I think are appropriate and other times I feel like I do not have enough insight to answer a question and don't want give them bad advice. I will give an opinion though, based on a what I would think in that situation due to information given.
I think a lot of people just can't be bothered to actually put in the effort to actually read and analyze the serious questions. They'd rather read more pointless questions and reply with equally pointless answers.
