What would be the significance in answering a question you might disagree with - by calling to attention?

- the date the asker's account began ? What , if anything would that have to do with any question - or is that being done now , to try and invalidate the question - in an effort to stiffle opposing views ? I just happened to see such an answer ; and have seen that sort of thing happen before . Why do you suppose ?

    People get defensive about having little basis for their opinions and will invent reasons why the opposing views are invalid - this could easily include something like "what do you know, you've only been here 5 minutes!"

    Then again, it might come from suspicion that the person is really someone who has been on before with a different account. I've read descriptions of people having multiple accounts for the purpose of giving themselves "Best Answers" and so forth.
