Summer is a slow season for us. School is out; people are taking vacations, or doing retreats or sabbaticals... I also think our audience may skew a little younger over summer.
We catch a lot of flack for our justified insistence on "gravity" (motivation of philosophical interest and importance of questions, contextualized with specific texts.)
What if, just for a few weeks or so during the summer, this restriction on seriousness is lifted, at least for some appropriately-tagged subset of questions?
I'd welcome examples of "silly season" questions if you think this might be engaging, as well as arguments for and against the proposal.
I submit that even silly questions can have pedagogical value, especially when clearly differentiated by tags and maybe a notice at the top of the post.
Please share your thoughts below on instituting a brief silly season for Philosophy SE!
