There was an interesting conversation today in one of the chatrooms about how can one identify a good question.
Basically, the scenario is that question we all have seen which is enormously popular, but not considered to be very good by the majority of the sites main users. Here is a few that I've managed to find, I'm sure we could all find more examples.
- How does Santa Claus get into houses without a fireplace?
- jQuery code is too verbose, would like pointers on how to make it shorter
- Is overclocking legal?
Are there any methods that might be employed to reliably detect these types of questions, so that we could filter them out?
