    Am I still allowed to answer if my opinion isn't humble?

  • I took this great idea of a question type as an inspriation for a similar query over on Movies & TV Meta. Thank you very much.

Two of my personal favourites:

  • I really liked the answers and discussion on SQB’s question How did Dumbledore, or anyone, know Lily had sacrificed herself for Harry?

    It’s a well-posed question that invites discussion, which is nice because I think a lot of the recent Harry Potter questions have focused more on trivia than discussion. There are several good answers with different, canon-supported theories.

  • Richard’s answer to Does Batman use Linux?

    I remember this question getting a lot of flak when it was first asked, and was quickly closed as opinion-based. I was pleasantly surprised when Richard managed to find not one, but two canon references to Batman’s computer.

    I liked the batman one. I think the issue was that it got quite a few "jokey" responses very quickly. ..

  • @Richard: Partly that, but there were also people (including me) who thought the question was unanswerable without being silly.

  • The penguin comment was genuinely laugh out loud funny

Questions: Honorable Mentions:


I mostly remember these because they were for the questions I asked, so there's a certain bias there
