You pretty much said it right here. It's a way for people to dodge a conversation by posting some random question or comment. It takes away from what could otherwise be a good conversation about something on the site, and disinclines people from being honest.

Rules of fansites:
1 - You can either be right, or you can be happy.
3 - If you think someone is lying about being an expert, they are.
5 - If you think someone is lying about knowing people who work in the industry, they are.
14 - All sources are one-sided.
27 - There's no such thing as an honest politician.
