When looking at Area51 we can see that we have quite few questions per day. Should we put more effort in filling the site with content by asking questions? Will this help the site to grow? Would it al all be possible to shape the content we want this site to have by not only answering, commenting, or close voting, but also by asking questions?
I am asking this because now once too often when I did ask a question it was frowned upon with me being overtly accused of artificially pushing the site:
Relax, Takkat. Questions will come or they won't. Pump-priming won't make a difference. Link
Because of this I had already dramatically reduced my asking questions here. But sometimes I still have a question where I really would like to hear other's opinions. Obviously I would have no problem at all to stop asking in these cases too.
But what reason could there be that avid users should stop asking?
