I once asked for some reasoning. I got a single answer but I hoped for more answers, possibly objecting the view of the single answer as this was what I had suspected to be right anyway. However, I also suspected that there might be special cases where a different answer would have been reasonable.
Nothing happened so I accepted this answer after some days. Even much more later no other answer appeared.
Did I discourage other answers by accepting too early? Generally, does accepting an answer discourage later answers?
