I apologize to those who answered the question I posted at YAP yesterday as I did something unprecedented, I “chatted” on the question details that I added after about a couple of hours and after reading the answers.
This grave YAP mistake led to somebody reporting the question and it was subsequently deleted. I do not want to guess as to who or how many reported it but all the same, that was most probably the only “correct” YA violation I have ever received. Regardless that the reporter have a new MO and that the reason given was not chatting but wrong Q&A format. Yes, go figure but this is a good idea to keep in mind as you might be targeted next.
Here was my question:
Bush was thrown a shoe, Obama a book, what do you want to throw to GMA and PNoy?
And I also added the first parts of the answers below, here we can “freely” chat about this Q and all the answers. And hopefully more people can answer and that the yappers below can complete their answers or comment back.
This made me add the first additional detail in which I said who were Bush, Obama, GMA and PNoy.
Now this is original.
Now originally I had no idea what Cherifer was, but a quick google on it is easy enough to do. First good answer.
Okay this answer was from Mr. or Ms. dot. Easy enough to report this answer as it does not really answer the question. But why bother right? Instead I gave it a thumbs up, like everyone else.
Okay, now the second of the two real answers so far. And nothing else. And that is when I added more details and there you go, all hell broke loose and somebody reported the question.
Now these next answers I did not see as the question in question was already deleted, but just the same here are parts of the next answers:
Mr. BCool, hard to comment as we cannot read the whole answer, you can comment on this blog post and give us your answer if you wish.
But I do have a comment for you, I am aware that the shoe thrown at Bush and the book thrown at Obama was entirely done with different motives. But that is not really the point of the question. But I thank you if you tried to enlighten me and our fellow yappers. Good show.
Hello pero, again, I wanted to read the rest of your answer and I hope you can find the link to this and comment.
Scary thought of being hated by you though.
Hello Joeyboy, again, I would have loved to read the rest but… [tawanan na lang ang tumatawa sa tuwa at nakareport nanaman]
🙂 Papa Alpha, baseball?
JKoolJ, you can assume anything you want.
Tomato at … ? And what at the others?
🙂 again, cut off… argh lol
Okay then next came the dreaded Violation Notice Email:
Deleted Question: Bush was thrown a shoe, Obama a book, what do you want to throw to GMA and PNoy?
Violation Reason: Misuse of the question and answer format
In Yahoo! Answers you must phrase questions in question format, and your answer must attempt to answer the question. Questions or answers must be written in a comprehensible way, and must be written in the language specific to the Answers site to which it is uploaded. You may not post conversational content without an attempt to post a meaningful question or answer a question or otherwise misuse the question and answer format.
I know, a new name for the old reliable “chatting” reason. ROFL
