Log in & Run

Posted: August 20, 2008 in Uncategorized

I have barely 5 minutes to sneak in, into YAP & into this blog. I’ll have more time later on tonight.

So basically right now, I will Log-in, take a peek & run. Normally I have about 15 minutes to spare each time, but not today.

But before I go, I’ll do this quick blog post, for I noticed yet another YAP Q. Here it is:

Filipinos at Yahoo Answers!, why do you call yourselves YAPPER?

Seriously, what’s the etymology of that word?

Yap = Yahoo Answers Philippines from Yahoo Answers>Travel>Asia Pacific>Philippines with Travel>Asia Pacific disregarded.
Per = apiece?

Shouldn’t it be Yaper? (Yap + suffix “er”)

Okay, seriously, what do you think?

    If you look at the front page you will see that the title is
    Yahoo Answers Philippines = Y.A.P.

    It is quite common in English, when adding the suffix ‘er’ to include the last letter, too.
