Why do people often answer mean questions more than normal questions?

I sometimes ignore mean questions but I've noticed that people here tend to answer the mean ones more. Why?

  • The best way to make sure that your question will be answered is to ask it in a way that compells people to answer. If the question challenges their morals or beliefs then they are more likely to answer. Mean questions more often than not challenge people.

  • This is how provocation works.
    If I ask why cats are much better than dogs I will be jumped by dog persons.
    Serious questions are also much harder to answer.
