The bike shed problem and SO
Sometimes I come across trivial questions that get up-voted for no particular reason. (Not to imply that I am an authority on what a good reason for voting a question up might be.) This makes me uneasy and my question is two-fold:
Is it alright to down-vote a question simply because I think it gets too much attention? Is the attitude of "trivial questions should not get any attention" appropriate for SO?
