Selective YAP Reporting

Posted: March 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

This is the blog post which I promised to talk about from the last one.

And in this one, I just want to focus on one thing & one thing only.

Are you a YAP Police Dog or are you part of the pack of YAP Police Dogs?

If you are, then why have you been selectively reporting my Non-Travel Related Posts in YAP, especially the old ones while conveniently ignoring most of the YAP Questions of other YAPPERs.

I mean, if you are a true YAP Police Dog and you want to clean up YAP, then clean it up the right way.

Report all Non-Travel Related Questions. But then again if you do that, that’s all you’re going to do as that will probably constitute to reporting some 90 to 99% of  all YAP Questions. Yes for only 1 in 10 questions in YAP are Travel Related & it could be less than that. And that would be a futile effort if you ask me. So, the only logical reason is that this is being done by dogs who are selective in their policing.

And one last thing, who has the time to even go back & wade thru all the YAP Questions & selectively report non-travel related questions in YAP. We need to come up with a new name for them people with so much time in their hands.  If only they do that to do something more noble or something that would make them some money, then maybe I would salute them.

Hasta  la vista baby… (you can’t stay hidden for so long, so why not just come out in the open now & tell us why, oh why, oh why)

Am I The Only One Thinking Like This On This One?

I mean, as I go YAP lately I see mostly:

  • troll Q & As which mostly are not really bad. Many people welcome most of them because they say it livens up the place. Of course that’s true, most of us cannot deny that, but only until somebody gets hurt. And what I meant is until somebody gets justifiably offended by politically incorrect terminology or discriminatory and bias content.
  • homework questions and questions which would be easily answered in what, less than a minute by googling it.
  • and the new breed of English translations, which I have asked about some time ago but I do not think most people understood what I meant. I do not want to put up the link here as that would be like putting a dry bone to the nose of stalker trolls, paparazzi trolls & YAP Police dogs (the same ones who only come out at night & have all this time been content to do their stuff in the dark & wouldn’t even have a single courageous bone to come over here & tell us a little something about them or why they do what they do within YAP. I mean they do a good thing at least in their mind but why not tell us why they do it.–my next blog post will clarify what I meant about this)

Okay in this post, I will single out this latest English Translation Please Questions.

  1. Don’t you think that most askers of these questions are invading the privacy of somebody out there  who was the intended recipient of the Tagalog message they want translated into English? Be it a Tagalog/Taglish chat, text or email message which obviously was being asked by a non-Tagalog speaker & obviously those message weren’t meant for them.
  2. And two don’t you feel by answering these questions, some of which are even “personal” messages, we contribute into an invasion of privacy?
  3. And why aren’t anybody reporting these types of questions as obviously these are not Travel related. I mean somebody or some people are again going back to my old YAP questions & have reported 4 of my older mostly non-travel related questions & now they have been DELETED–and that would be the topic of my next post.
