Why is this? Is it something to do with the Flex community, as compared with, say, the C# community?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Is there a Stack Overflow protocol for why you would upvote something?
I rarely upvote questions. Not sure why, I never thought of it before. Very few questions impress me as being well written or having some overall relevance to the world of Flex Development.
A lot of questions seem poorly written. I'm am sick of being told "I can't provide a runnable code sample to demonstrate the problem." or "I can't provide a code sample due to NDA." or other similar excuses.
I do notice, perhaps unrelated, that I personally seem to get a lot of "answer" points without a lot of "upvotes". I think I even got a badges for that ( Tenacious and Unsung Hero ).
