I just come across a very interesting question, which, due to already-many-times-discussed disgusting nature of Stack Overflow, scarcely will get any attention at all, not to mention any upvotes. So - I wish to spend some of my reputation points to distinguish an excellent question, just for sake of great justice.
Why can't we award a bounty for a question?
A trick just came to my mind - to award a bounty and to persuade an author to answer. But I don't like such a dirty game. Can't we make it square?
