    Most people probably only say it in the title to fill in the 20 characters. But I don't know why they say it in the additional details. Before I got an account, I thought you could determine how many points you could give people for best answer because I kept seeing people say that XD.

  • They want the most people possible to answer them, so they bribe with the promise of 10 points.

    To try to advertise their question better.

    Or maybe they think we are stupid?

    EDIT: LOL @ third answerer - I know!! Most of the time when they say that in their question, the question ends up going to vote after 4 days.

    XD

    Because sometimes the OP doesn't pick a best answer.
