Instead of giving someone a medal could I have the option to give them a nickel? Its purpose would be to give to people who have copy pasted questions similar to something like: "Which of the following properties is not indicative of trisomy 21?" and then answers follow A, B, C, D... without asking for any specific help whatsoever. So yeah, could we have nickels?

    So, what you are suggesting is something called negative reinforcement. It's similar to downvoting a question. We've intentionally steered away from these reinforcement mechanisms in the past because we want our community to teach and encourage rather than simply press a button that indicates their disapproval. Does that make sense? I may not have done the best job of explaining it. heh.

    No, that's fair. I think having any negativity is a bad idea since this is a very sensitive thing. People coming here looking for answers might end up leaving with actually learning something.
