I do agree with @jzd mostly, but I think it is not so absolute as he states.
Giving this discussion a chance, and to balance a bit:
Allowing example responses could not be such a bad idea since I have seen question I though were bad or useless get excellent very helpful answers.
I think the quality of the answers is a good indicator of the quality of the answers (caveat: exceptions do exist).
Just wanted to add another point of view.
