Out of curiosity, I checked the number of questions and answers for the 36 highest rep users as of 9:45 p.m. EST (USA) on June 28, 2019. Six of the 36 users have never asked a question, but the number of answers they have provided ranges from a low of 163 up to 821. For these 36 highest rep users, the total number of answers was 13227, with a mean of 367.4, and the total number of questions they asked was 564, with a mean of 15.7. This is a ratio of about 23.5 to 1. A total of 21, of the 36 highest rep users, asked less than 10 questions each.
To me, this seems rather peculiar. In particular, why are there so few questions from the high rep users, given the age-old truism that the more you know, the more you realize you don’t know? If the answer is that the 36 highest rep users are simply enormously intelligent and knowledgeable about chemistry, then I have no problem at all with that: kudos to them! Thoughts?
