My parents always accused me of being Socratic. I would frequently, and often just to annoy them, would answer questions, with another question. My mother would ask, "Why do you always answer a question with another question"? My response, "Why shouldn't I"?

Hopefully you can see the game I'm starting here.

Have any of you ever done this?

There is an earlier thread that does this.
