    By clicking the big button that says "answer this question", but do it fast, so when MOST questions go to voting, losers just want the points and click the first answerer :) lol.

    Try not to be a troll. Some people actually would like a straightforward answer to an honest question.

    Try not to answer troll questions. It can be difficult, but try to ignore the more ridiculous ones.

    If you do answer troll questions with a troll answer - make it humorous or use enough facts in your response to b**ch slap them into reality.

    Here are some tips for answering questions.

    A good answer:

    * answers the question.

    * is stated positively.

    * is expressed in layman's terms.

    * has main point "up front."

    * is specific (i.e., it uses specific examples, illustrations, anecdotes, concrete detail, analogies; backs up quantitative statements with figures).

    * is concise.

    * does not include more than is necessary.

    * recognizes opportunities in question to state your point of view.

    * doesn't sound antagonistic, evasive or defensive.
