As I have mentioned previously, there are several types of YAPPERs,

  • the Top Guns
  • the TCs
  • the Regulars
  • the Occasionals
  • the Visitors

The Top Guns are usually those that can be found in the YAP Top Ten Leader Board, and usually they are also TCs or Top Contributor Badge Holders.

Below we can have a closer look at the present YAP Leader Board (YAPs Who’s Who)

But before I forget there is also another type of YAPPER but they are virtual unknowns, although they are just as popular if not more popular than any of the Top Guns. But infamous is a better term.

And to this last group I gave the name Paparazzi*. If only all of them can come out of the open & reveal themselves & stop being closet queens, then we can have a TOP TEN PAPARAZZI LEADER BOARD, besides what is YAP going to be without them.

It just seems that all of them are all shy to reveal themselves.

They know that they cannot reveal themselves in YAP but they can come out of the open in here, I just don’t know why they wouldn’t want to & give their side of the story.

I am still waiting…

* Paparazzi is a term I coined & explained fully in earlier postings. But this type is not the same as a Troll**. Although it can & may include Trolls, Gremlins or whatever name they go by. Paparazzis are specifically YAPPERS who go about checking up on any YAPPER & read all their Q & As, maybe thumbing down (TDing) many or all them. But their main interest is to just report any & all YA violations.

**Trolls are all around us too, but I have not included them on the list because to be one is against YA Guidelines.
