I just came across a bounty added to an old question on SO. That question has hundreds of upvotes and stars, nearly 100K views and an accepted answer with a score of over 1K.
Why would someone put a bounty on such a question? It's highly unlikely that anyone, save the person who posted the bounty, will even scroll down enough to see any new answers, never mind upvote them after having read the accepted answer (which has had tons of edits and is a real gem, as you probably won't be surprised to hear).
Is there something I 'm missing here?
