Thinking about it from an editorial perspective, the questionnaire format results in what will likely be more readable posts than a longer essay. The current format does sometimes result in a sentence or two, but a lot of the answers are a paragraph or two. So I'm not sure the end result would be a much different amount of content; some people are going to give shorter replies no matter the form. The other good thing about the current format is that it makes the answers more directly comparable.

That said, I do like the idea of a more free-form response as a way to see how candidates think. I suppose I can toss both at FESCo and let them make the choice. :-)
