"å be"is the infinitive. I don't know the difference, but I have the same feeling as tinnatay (see above). "Spørre" usually seems to be used when asking a question and I don't think you "be" a question. You can say for example "Jeg ba ikke om å være syk mitt hele liv". "Jeg ba aldri om penger". So more like I didn't ask for it instead of to pose a question. Does this make sense and is this correct moderators?
