I've noticed a trend where many questions are only getting one answer and one perspective. On the one hand, it's indicative of more factual questions being asked, and hence they tend to have a right or a wrong answer.
"How long did it take for the canon to be established?" really only has one answer, regardless of tradition. These tend to be rather academic, and may or not be scholarly, but easily devolve into reference, general or otherwise. I also note that area 51 looks for a ratio of 2.5 answers per question, and reference doesn't seem to lend itself to that.
In contrast a question like "Who was being paid with the blood of Jesus," is more interesting, and should have lots of answers, from different perspectives. And yet, it went nowhere. Indeed, I believe it was closed, partly because it lacked a tradition in which it should be answered.
The question I have, then is this: are questions with more than one potential answer to be encouraged or discouraged?
