give us an example.

Why on earth would we care about this kind of thread?

Rhetorical question. I didn't mean it either, it was just an example. It's not even a good example. I can't be put on the spot like this...

if you want to be a smartass, of course they do. but they're actually a rhetorical question.


[rhetorical question-
a question asked solely to produce an effect or to make an assertion and not to elicit a reply, as “What is so rare as a day in June?”]

I know what a rhetorical question is, and whether you are using it to "produce an effect or to make an assertion and not to elicit a reply" or not, it still has an answer so a rhetorical question is not a question without an answer

Actually, rhetorical questions have answers, they just aren't expected to be answered. For Example, 'Do we really have to put up with this tomfoolery?' It has an answer, but if used as part of a speech, one does not expect an answer.
