(This is perhaps pretty close to Question/answer ratio etiquette in Stack Overflow? and maybe a few others...but it seems at least a smidge different than an "exact duplicate" to me...)
It seems that "a lot" of "stupid" or "bad" questions (asked only for reputation points?) come from people with few answers. While I'm by no means any type of an expert on Stack Overflow (with a measly 1000+ reputation points), I answer a whole lot more questions than I ask--by a ratio of about 10-answered to 1-asked.
Is there anything on Stack Overflow that is driven by this ratio? Should there be? If so, what would be a "good" question/answer ratio?
While we all want people to feel free to ask questions, there is a lot of benefit in both answering questions and taking the time to write a decent question.
