Do we know what we don't know? Then why we comment on every matter though we had not test that yet? Why we try to be smarter than the people whio know the subject?

I think people just comment to make money. That's what this site is about.

On this site, I'd say there is absolutely nothing wrong commenting on a subject you know little about, providing you've formulated a proper answer and haven't stated that opinion as gold, I'd take those people any day as opposed to somebody will give a 'sod-it-I-don't-care-so-I'll-post-anything'.

I think everyone tries to earn a lot of money through this system by any means they can think of...thats why we see discussions like they have earned this much in this time and likewise....anybody gives a damn about giving a thought to the efficacy of the discussion he/she starts.

Human nature. Alot of temporary self-esteem can be gained by the game of one-upmanship.

I guess everybody responds (as far as this site concernes) to get paid by mylot... I think it's a reason.. If ur question is about how ppl are trying to look smarter then they are in real life.. I guess it's a way to get noticed, to appear better in the eyes of the ones who are next to you... or we simply dont have anything else (better) to do..
