I love answering questions on here, but I'm tired of not being able to do anything because of my stinking reputation! It's outrageous. A highly experienced grammarian could answer questions on here but could easily be criticized by high-reputation people who don't know what they are talking about. One of my answers to be removed because "it didn't answer the question." If it were still up, you'd see how good it was.
We're supposed to be providing research, but sometimes the points within a post are so obvious that research is unnecessary. I hate seeing extremely long posts done by people who are afraid of being criticized for lack of research when the question is so simple! We should be encouraging to-the-point answers with some optional research while being able to upvote other answers in the forum even if one has low reputation.
Just because one has low reputation does not mean that one's answers will instantly be crappy!
