I don't have a problem with it, but it does 'reward' people who choose non-confrontational and, let's say it, boring sorts of questions to answer, and avoid making criticisms of the asker.
If your answer is full of nicey-nice 'I feel for you', and 'you'r right, that was an awful thing for him to say', you're likely to get a lot of MHO's.
If you're like me and often tell people they are too full of themselves, that they are spewing Pentagon propaganda about political questions,
that no， it is NOT all right to date a 30 year old when you are 16.。。and the like.
Not that many people who get slammed are going to give you an MHO！

In the end it is up to the asker to decide which answer they want to pick. It doesn't matter, in the end, you can't really put on resume that you had _____% MHO on a website for giving advice.1

I agree with you. People give MHO to whoever spouts their ideas back to them. That's the nature of the asker choosing the most helpful answer.
It would be cool if there was a statistic that basically took all your MHO's, and added up the thumb up/downs from girls and guys to give you an idea of how people feel about your answers.0
