I had always wanted to ask this particular BA* Question in YAP.
But because I know that these Types of Qs are like honey to the buzzing reporter busy bees.
And so I am just going to ask it over here. And of course we also know that any answer over here will not be summarily deleted without due process & due cause.
Okay, before I put the question, I know that the selection of the BA (Best Answer) all depends upon the Asker or in the case of a vote, to the one getting the majority vote. YA Democracy in Action. (YADA, for short)
But what do you think is the most logical reason for an Asker to select a totally wrong answer or an answer that can only be described as nothing else but a YES, a NO or a WHATEVER, over many other exceptional if not correct answers?
And have you ever been surprised to see that you got the BA over all the other answers, considering that you know that you gave a shitty answer?
And when you have time to check up on your previous answers have you ever been surprised to find out that the least likely answer got the BA as against all the top answers, your answer included of course?
And this is not withstanding that most times we do feel (within ourselves but we do not want to admit it to anybody else) that most of our answers are BAs if not BA contenders.
And also you do feel that any YAPper asking a question would really want to get the right or the correct answer to their question, & so why don’t give the BA to the real BA?
What can you say?
TU** or TD***?
*BA – Best Answer
**TU – Thumbs Up
***TD – Thumbs Down
