Monks are not AI in a game. "Playing the system" is fine for the website, but what effect do you think it'll have on the people on that site? Why not just expend the effort in being genuinely helpful instead?
Since we're being candid in this thread: I answer plenty of questions where I don't know the answer off the top of my head. I just know how to research and test quickly. (Which has the advantage of having links and tested code at the ready.) The "game" I play on this website is "keeping myself sharp and helping people".
