Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
Should people who ask questions always (or at least almost always) be choosing a correct answer? Isn't it a bit impolite if they don't?
Here's some general Stack Exchange doctrine on accepting an answer. Basically, yes, you should generally do it.
I don't think it's that huge a deal if you don't, though, since community is a stronger and more meaningful endorsement of answers, in my opinion.
