in thread How node in SOPW is answered? I suggest author's ability to reject bad answers

needless to say, there's more examples of good answers to difficult questions. I can even give you an example of an answer to a question that requires many coding and testing and explainings and they, after satisfying answerer, finally got negative XP.

Anyway, sometimes in rare cases a person who answers just makes extra noice and just gives attention away. One of examples is How to manage .Xdefaults to be used for Tk on Win32?.

Baboon resolved his question by itself, but noice between those Q and A were really unnecessary: one said it's offtopic because he did not have enough imagination how this could be off-topic. and so on.

There are sometimes questions that are hard-to answer not because they are really difficult, but because it's belong to a field that answerers just do not cover.

I have much more examples on that.
