If the question on musing is boring, would you want to answer it?
I was wondering if everyone would answer questions even if the question would be boring and repetitive

I would like to know more about modern physics and astrophysics. I could do both by answering or just plainly reading good answers from others about the said topics.

For me, musing is not just about a place for opinions and comments to some theoretical things and abstract ideas but also an avenue for facts and discoveries of sciences. It would be more interesting if we see more educational topics in here, back links from long answers summarized accordingly and be shared to musing user. It will also open big opportunities for students like free sharing of educational materials and reports because nowadays almost everything is for sale.

To my own understanding, musing is not about have fun to talk of boring but its a platform to enlighten. No matter how odd a question can be to you just try to answer the question in the best possible way and about repetition of questions, I have said it before and I will say it again that there is no problem with repeating questions because different people can have the same question and different people can see the same question at different times and give different reasonable answers to the questions.

Though I don't understand what you personally classify as a boring question but what you think you enjoy is what is boring to another person therefore you can't say a question is boring because you don't understand or enjoy the question.

No matter how boring a question is or dumb, if I can answer it then I will.

The word "boring" can be subjective. It might sound boring for a person, but it isn't for the other. So making a statement that is out of my preferences as boring is not rightful.

We all have preferences, and we choose answering questions that we like. For sure, many of us here skipped a lot of questions because either we don't want to answer it or it's out of our interest. Can we say it is boring? We shouldn't because a lot of the questions are answered by other members unless a certain answerer is a spammer.

Therefore, it is better to say some questions are not among our interests and preferences than saying it is boring.

A good number of the questions being asked on the musing platform are no doubt boring and of course, repetitive. But as one is not bound to answer a particular stream of questions, you choose what you answer and skip the rest.  If it seems boring to you, you can as well ignore it and move on to the next question. To someone else, it might seem interesting. What seems boring to you might seem interesting to someone else and they might find it even fun to answer. Most times, I see some boring questions and I immediately skip it on to the next question because I do not want a bore.

I would say that 90 percent of the questions have been repetitive and sometimes you just don't want to answer them.

I will if I can't find some other questions to answer but I try not to now. Some of the Crypto questions or Steem questions are just to mind numbing to answer now.

Just because I may find it boring, doesn't mean the person asking the question finds it boring, and it could be something they really need help with, that I could provide an answer for. 

I try not to judge the context of the question, or any aspects of the questioner, I just go into each question with an open mind, and answer to the best of my abilities, stating opinions when they are opinions, and facts when they are facts. This is generally how I conduct my form of answering questions.

Yes. If it's a difficult question then I'm most likely in it for the challenge. I use musing to pass the time anyway.

Yeah maximum question that is actually seen are kind of similar to the question asked before in some ways. I usually go for those questions that I really know the answer of and as of boring stuff or which I have little idea of (Example: Political stuffs)  I usually avoid those kind of stuffs. 

While If I know the answer to a question and if I can help that particular user I would go for it .

The Repetitive stuff will be here and as user increases we might see that even more in the coming days.

To be honest there are few users who asks questions in Musing which literally does not hold any value nor does it makes sense but yeah still we will see a lot of those.

While the Curation team is honestly doing a very nice job in keeping the users who are doing their best in answering and helping users in Musing by their work.

Well this is subjective as we have different "tastes" of topic.

I am only answering to questions that I feel I can contribute my ideas and be able to share it for the benefit of the platform and for us users. Those questions I answer are part of my niche, my favorites, the things that I ca share my experience (especially about life), and most importantantly topics that I feel I can contribute a big value to the community.

So, its typically the questions that I am capable of answering (without relying on search engines, etc) and based it only my personal stock of knowledge.

I see so many meaningless questions having answers on musing. Some of the questions you can't understand what the person is asking by reading them, but the have answers, do you know why? Because everyone on musing is hoping to get an upvote from questions answered and musing most times, considers the length of a response in determining if up votes will be given more than the relevance of the response

There are so many boring questions getting answers here. That shows that people don't answer question here because the question is an intellectual one but because they're hoping of getting an up vote from such answer.

I generally go for questions that I think I have some knowledge about, and also have some interest in. This means that a question is boring to me I will pass on it - Musing is becoming bigger and bigger and I am sure someone will attempt to answer these 'boring' questions, as they may be interesting to some people.

For me, It doesn't matter if it is boring or not...

when answering some question I first think whether I have command on the subject or not...

If I think that I have something valuable to share then I will answer otherwise I prefer to remain shut up!

For me, I do not think there is a boring question, they all have some doubt that they want to solve, I do not think they ask a random question because as far as I've read they are all questions with a purpose.

Maybe they want to know more about the opinion of people here in musing or see what other points of view have about a topic, the only questions I do not answer are the ones I have no idea what to answer about it, that I do not have much knowledge about of the subject or just do not know anything.

Short and simply and right on the point I would answer with a resounding ‘no’. Why would I? Why should I? What would be the point?
