WikiAnswers is a wiki, instead of a bulletin board. Each answer is essentially a "living document" to be edited without mercy. We aim to grow FAQs. Ideally, each question should have one good answer. Practically, some questions have different opinions or different viewpoints to consider; in those cases a bullet list of opinions is reasonable.
