Why does nearly every answer get upvotes?

Even the most repetitive answers, even off-topic questions, even irrelevant comments, and even completely incoherent drivel. They all get an upvote, *sometimes more*. I'm new here and don't purport to understand the finer points of "how things work around here" but I think on-topic threads should illicit on-topic responses. I know bad responses are unavoidable, but to upvote them!? Does one climb the leaderboard posting "Banana banana banana" everywhere then?

As far as I am concerned, cookies work better than bananas.

meh. Likestorms can be annoying too. I personally do not give a rats about xp. I am here to learn. But I do get your point Jamie. They give a false impression on a given response. edit: likestorm involves blindly liking anything anyone posts. reading be damned

I sincerely hope so. SE have strict rules, but they can be too strict. I was hoping for a logical balance.
