Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Do you answer too many questions on stack sites? Does answering questions put you into a cycle of debating with people you'd rather not be spending time on? Then this app is for you.

It does one thing, but it does it well: it hides the Answer form on Question pages, making it difficult but not impossible to answer questions.

For more on why I wrote it, see How to not get reputation points on Stack Overflow.

The script is a simple Greasemonkey script: no_so_answers.user.js

// ==UserScript==
// @name           No answering on Stackoverflow
// @namespace      http://nedbatchelder.com/greasemonkey
// @description    Hide the answer box on Stack Overflow 
//                 to stop obsessive behavior
// @include        http://stackoverflow.com/*
// ==/UserScript==

GM_addStyle(
    "@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); " +
    ".question-page #post-form { display: none; }"
    );
