In Is the Suunto Ambit compatible with the Bontrager DuoTrap Digital Speed/Cadence Sensor? the questioner answered his question immediately after having posted his question. Beside the fact, that I find it quite inappropriate in this special case, as it has is a simple "yes" or "no" answer, I would like to bring to discussion the following topic:
Do you find it OK to ask a question where one already knows the or an answer?
From other sx.com sites (more programming-related) I know that it is considered OK as long as one is honest enough to tell already in the question that one has an answer and will give the others some time to think about an answer before posting the own one.it
On this community here I think this is rather complicated. We have normally either questions that are basically answered "yes/no" or such ones that ask more or less for the opinions of the community. An the other hand, questions that ask for a solution for a specific problem, like they are common for programming communities, are quite rare. Therefore I cannot really imagine that there could be many questions for this specific community where it could be useful to ask a question where one already knows the answer.
How do you think about this?
