Very much so.
But also keep in mind, with the internet, it is easy to find something, some proof, anything that might be out there anywhere, to support your positions.
I mean, look at the Flat Earth society. The internet made it possible for these kooks to come together, and pick and choose information they claim is legitimate, and they've grown because new people find their stuff and think "wait, this makes sense..." because of the careful way the lie is told.
Almost anything can be argued to be true on the internet, and there will always be sources to back it up. So in that way, even those who do not "chose" to be ignorant, and even those who do research, can be very wrong just based on what sources they chose to believe, or because false information led them astray.2

If you mean why some people ask questions, when they could just search for the answer on google. It's due to wanting points from asking a question, that's why I ask majority of the questions that sound kind of dumb.1
