Is SO turning into something where only the easy questions get answered(and viewed more often)? Or am I just asking too specific stuff? I have asked some questions in SO(even earned the tumbleweed badge for that) because I google first and exhausted possibilities before asking(as opposed to just asking)
But the trend I see so far(well at least for the "interesting" questions I get from SO is that easy ones are upvoted(and gets much more views) than the "good" questions where you'll actually have to stop and think of an answer.
While I know this is an expected behavior(since of course, difficult questions need time to be answered) I am wondering why a lot of people don't actually VIEW them(thus tumbleweed badges galore). I do think some of my questions can be answered by the gurus if they took time to read it.
Is it "regular" SO behavior to try to get reps as much as possible and thus just answer easy questions as fast as you can? Is there a way where we can balance this kind of behavior?
