    As so often, the intention is good, but people can always find ways around it. I'm seeing a lot of answers that say "The minimum length of an answer is 15 characters", which obviously they simply copy and paste, collecting two points as they go.

    because some will just write yes or no, just so they can get two points. it is becoming a pain in the neck

    I know, right? I've noticed the same thing too. And it's annoying. Because there are many true or false questions especially in this section, since it's the Polls and Surveys section, which is bad, before, I only answered T or F and that was it. Right now, I have to make things up and answer much more since the minimum length of an answer is 15 characters. Which sucks.

    It encourages rambling where a one word answer is sufficient.

    Seems like a good idea. No more points for one worders is good. IMHO
