Long story short, no. We want people to learn to write questions that are better outright, not just do the minimum to "game" a rule or two and sneak a question that's still actually pretty bad over the quality bar.

This is intended to help the poster as much as the regulars on one of the stack exchange sites: The person asking the question probably wants a great answer to their question and the people reading the question can best deliver a great answer when the question itself is a well structured, great quality question that provides as much information as possible and does so as clearly as possible.
