I have been doing that, especially with the students.  Don't laugh, some have actually come up with new takes on the same old question and some have appologized for asking them.

Compliment them for asking?

Sure, why not.

But I would think a well thought out response that provokes additional commentary would organically generate great questions and better responses.

I am not sure your suggestion differs much from what the 40 active  Q & A participants already do. Exept they give points that some may consider more neaningful.
