A habit of speech and conversation whereby a questioner asks a very unspecific question of a questionee, or series of such questions, leading up to the actual question which the questioner would like the questionee to answer. A waste of conversational bandwidth, be it spoken or digital.
"Can I ask you a question?"
"You just did."
"Yes, but only one, and you already used it up."
