With my question "Does Gaydar Exist" I may have taken the "make sure your question is well'researched" guideline a bit too far
I've attempted a few questions in the past where my own research ended up self-answering, but I didn't really see that happening here (although I very possibly may be wrong in that thinking). Frankly, I thought the data I cited in the question was preliminary at best, and therefore quite worthy of skepticism. While I found it interesting, I didn't find it decisive in any way. And I asked the question specifically hoping someone with more knowledge could add some clarity or more detail to the issue with their answer, even if it turns out the answer is "still needs more study."
It seems quite a few people think the data provided answers the question. How should I handle this? Even though the question has quite a few upvotes, I don't mind deleting it if it's not going to lead to a productive answer.
Should I delete some of the data I cited and see if that makes it more answerable? Somehow this idea seems stupid and counterproductive.
Should I leave it open and see what happens? If it's not going to attract a quality answer, it seems unwise to leave it open.
Should I re-word the question in a way that makes it more clear that I don't feel what I'm asking is really "answered" by the data I provided? If so, does anyone have any suggestions? I have a feeling I'm brain-farting somewhere on this one.
Or am I just missing something else entirely?
