idk.

Some people do it so that they can donate 25 cents. Others do it because they're lazy. Others do it because they think it's funny. Still others do it to bump up their questions answered number.

Many people do it because they think that it will humor people or just because they want to donate 25 cents... It really irritates me when I see those answers.

Great all we can do is report and sometimes the moderators don't even remove it.

They can't think for themselves.

I sometimes answer when I don't know the answer because I can always come up with something related.
I usually only do it if I feel sorry for them that no one has answered them.
But I make it substantial not just an idk.
So I guess I answered this because I wanted to show another viewpoint and it only had 4 answers!
As a bonus I get to count how many times I used the word answer. 6! if I include this last one.
:)
