Is it problematic that people are more concerned with gaining points than asking and answering questions in a meaningful way?

Ideally, they shouldn't be given as many points for a few simple words than somebody who pours out a lot in their answer.

Personally I find it ridiculous the one time I wrote a one word answer and got next to 150 points for it, while my long elaborated answers are barely read by anyone. That goes for anyone else in that position, too.
But, you can't blame the user giving the answer anymore than you can all the people who give points to it.
Also I tend to find it rather lame that well known people will give mundane yes or no answers with little thought and because of how popular they are they get all this recognition. Lame in my opinion, but I'm not actually complaining about it. If that's what people decide, then that's what it will be, and I'm sure if it was me in that place I wouldn't mind-unfortunately. :/

I was just writing about this:
http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/1135714

"Creating art for money is like being on answerbag for the points. The points don't actually matter as much as the questions, answers, insights, conversations, knowledge, and friendship. If you seek only points you overlook what will make your Q&A a valuable experience to others, instead only caring about what you are *taking* for yourself. Sure, you'd give something in the form of participating, but you'd be doing what gets you the most points, rather than providing true insight."

That's sort of true.

But with conversational questions, there's little need to be meaningful. Silly is more like it.
