It's OK to ask many good questions. But good questions require lots of thought.

This is not just a smart-ass one-liner response. It is really, really difficult to ask good questions. I just went back and looked at mine and found;

It is sad to note that these bad questions have many more upvotes than my few clear, concise, technical questions :-(

The answer I have a gold badge for is not technical at all, and arguably doesn't belong on the site. Not that I'm returning the badge, you understand. –  David Thornley Jul 2 '10 at 19:26

If you are trying to learn, asking questions can be quite helpful. Especially on sites like S[OFU]. There is quite the community here, and a massive collective knowledge. I've learned plenty just by lurking on these sites.

It is important to ask questions that can be answered. Provide necessary details, be specific, and you'll probably get helpful responses in short order.
