I absolutely hate that the GAG system picks my MHO for me. I've asked questions before that had 1 or 2 people respond with like two word answers and because no one else answered they got MHO. I wait for answers on my questions because I hate giving undeserved MHOs especially when someone else comes along right after and gives a much better answer. But I can't wait any more. I hate that I'm forced to give MHOs in 30 days. Sometimes all opinions are unhelpful and I feel like it's unfair for GAG to force me to give points for them.

Most Helpful Girl
This is from GaG FAQ:
"If, after 30 days, you haven't chosen and selected Most Helpful opinion per each gender, one will automatically be chosen for you.
Neither the Question Asker nor the user awarded Most Helpful will get Xper points for these automatic selections.
Automatic MHOs are chosen per gender based on engagement: votes, comments, length, time, xper level, among other criteria. As long as you're giving helpful opinions, we'll find them!"
Given that neither get Xper, i don't see the point of automatic MHO0

To be honest I never thought it out as far as you did - I agree with you there should be no automatic MHO and the culture should be that the MHO is awarded to most deserving answer and not awarded if no answer fulfils criteria. I suppose people don't like the idea of going through a question again to pick a MHO so often will award it quickly or not at all. I personally always wait 24 hours at least to give most people a chance to respond maybe you should be allowed to change your MHO.0
