Can someone please explain why I had a violation? Topic: Personal history statement

Question: A person asked why Eastern Europeans were hated by British. I answered by saying "Check your history, you might find an answer or two there." History can explain a lot of reasons or excuses behind hate. I did not explain this in detail, but I don't see what is rude. Can someone please tell me why it is rude? I truly meant no harm. I really want to understand why it is a violation so I don't do it again.

Maybe they misunderstood your answer. Perhaps they thought it was a personal attack on THEM... they might be Eastern European and thought you meant that they should check their PERSONAL history? Or, maybe they thought you were being racist and making some blanket statement that ALL of history's problems can be traced to Eastern Europeans... sounds like a one-sided arguement that skinheads would present. They'll frequently throw out "facts" that "Jews control such-and-such" and then link that to all the world's problems. Your answer makes it sound like the British are justified in hating. Lots of times, misunderstandings occur through email or posts like this; your answer could have come across as a bit hostile.

Benjamina Originally Answered: Explain where and how the electron transport chain creates a proton gradient and explain how ATP is produced b?
Electron Transport Chain What happens to the NADH2+ and FADH2 produced during the Krebs cycle? The molecules have been reduced, receiving high energy electrons from the pyruvic acid molecules that were dismantled in the Krebs Cycle. Therefore, they represent energy available to do work. These carrier molecules transport the high energy electrons and their accompanying hydrogen protons from the Krebs Cycle to the electron transport chain in the inner mitochondrial membrane. In a number of steps utilizing enzymes on the membrane, NADH2+ is oxidized to NAD+, and FADH2 to FAD. The high energy electrons are transferred to ubiquinone (Q) and cytochrome c molecules, the electron carriers within the membrane. The electrons are then passed from molecule to molecule in the inner membrane of the mitochondria, losing some of their energy at each step. The final transfer involves the combining of electrons and H2 atoms with oxygen to form water. The molecules that take part in the transport of these electrons are referred to as the electron transport chain. The process can be summarized as follows: the electrons that are delivered to the electron transport system provide energy to "pump" hydrogen protons across the inner mitochondrial membrane to the outer compartment. This high concentration of hydrogen protons produces a free energy potential that can do work. That is, the hydrogen protons tend to move down the concentration gradient from the outer compartment to the inner compartment. However, the only path that the protons have is through enzyme complexes within the inner membrane. The protons therefore pass through the channel lined with enzymes. The free energy of the hydrogen protons is used to form ATP by phosphorylation, bonding phosphate to ADP in an enzymatically-mediated reaction. Since an electrochemical osmotic gradient supplies the energy, the entire process is referred to as chemiosmotic phosphorylation. Once the electrons (originally from the Krebs Cycle) have yielded their energy, they combine with oxygen to form water. If the oxygen supply is cut off, the electrons and hydrogen protons cease to flow through the electron transport system. If this happens, the proton concentration gradient will not be sufficient to power the synthesis of ATP. This is why we, and other species, are not able to survive for long without oxygen. The above is oxidative phosphorylation and photophosphorylation in the thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts. also produce ATP by chemiosmosis.

Either a user reported you for an abuse of guidelines or a Y/A staffer/software just pulled the question or answer off. It's just a system that combines human discretion with various automated software, so mistakes happen. We can't tell you for sure, so you should try to get an official answer from Y/A. If you feel a question or answer did not violate one of the 20 reasons listed in the Y/A guidelines (http://answers.yahoo.com/info/community_... ) and thus did not deserve to be deleted, then post a message to the Wrongful Violations board at http://messages.answers.yahoo.com/answer... or send a direct e-mail to [email protected] or [email protected] . Explain why your Q or A did not violate guidelines or just ask them to state why your Q or A was removed. NOTE: It may take weeks to get a response, but they usually respond in 48 hours (note... today is a U.S. holiday). Then again, a response isn't guaranteed.

Gotta love the politically correct world, myself not being the type of person wanting to conform myself I see nothing wrong with your answer. Things are what they are and I think it was a good explaination without having to go into detail. Someone just got offended easily and made a complaint, people are morons.

You said ,check YOUR history, they may be from a different country ,than yours,there history may have a few skeletons in it that your question hit a sore point. If you had said OUR history you may have been OK. Another point is you did not answer the question,you more or less told he / her to find out them selves. Sorry but that's how i see it.

One of yawhoo's little trolls reported what you said and of course as this is an automated system you received a violation,no use fighting it I have been fighting for almost a year at having my 360 account deleted because of a troll~

Your answer apparently offended someone. I got a violation the other day for warning people about poison in tooth paste and cough syrup!

You didn't attempt to answer the question; and so, your answer was removed because it violated Rule 1 of the Community Guidelines.

i guess some one at Answers thought it was , when they got the violation you can fight this..just at the bottom somewhere it should say if you think this is wrong click on it and explain why

Probably because the word "Hate" was used. Who knows; Answers quidelines are so stringent that almost anything is a violation. There goes free speach in this Country!!!!!!.

TOS violations almost always come from Yahoo staff rather than users. Generally speaking you only get them when you deserve them.
