You Want an Answer? Don’t Ask a Question!

Cunningham’s Law states that “the best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question; it’s to post the wrong answer”.

It’s strange, isn’t it, how we sometimes ask a direct question and nearly nobody replies? But then if we post a wrong answer or an opposing viewpoint, people are much more likely to respond.

Is this something you have observed before? Or is it a strategy that you’ve even used yourself?
