Do you think its abuse on Yahoo Answers when?
Topic: How do you write a college response paper
July 20, 2019 / By Ashton Question:
Someone posted a question that was completely mispelledt and full of texting abbreviations, whining that they DESERVE to get into college.
So I responded back that if they were writting gradeable term papers is such a format that they would not accept them. Adding to it that if this was how they wrote that they needed to go back to elementary school english.
So lo and behold I get a Yahoo warning about abuse.
So tell me dear answerers... should a direct response that questions the gramatical skills of someone be considered abuse....
I await your responses

It is because you did not ANSWER the question being asked...
And you (rightfully) pointed out that they need more than a fourth grade education - which is considered "Insulting other members" (even if they are ASKING for it)!
Sometimes you have to be SUBTLE in your attacks - smartassed humour works a LOT better than a direct assault ;);););)

Y staff do not moderate YA, WE do - we are all Community Moderators and this is the hundredth time explaining this
thousands of violations pouring in every day - there are 200 million of us and only a handful of Y employees - just think about that for a minute...
and try to figure out how fast Yahoo would have to close down YA due to it being overrun by spam and trolls, not to mention porn and extremely explicit and vulgar sexual content
trusted members EARNED that trust and the ability to delete what they report by ACCURATELY reporting thousands of violations with almost none being overturned on appeal
those who report poorly quickly lose their status at trusted members
why do you think that a Q is immune from being reported once it has a BA? - there is no statute of limitations on violations - ones from eight years ago are reportable and should be reported as no one wants to do a search and find an old post with porn or racism in it!
this is why we need to see the WHOLE post:
Who do you think the intended audience is?
What are three things the writer does to reach that audience?
What appears to be the writers purpose?
And lastly do you think the writer achieves that purpose? Why?
Best answer and ten points to whoever can all answer the questions I stated in this question :-)"
this is clearly a solicitation for homework, given the formality of the long list of questions you asked under the main header - your one answer showing in the cache is a violation but that person knows you are soliciting homework
then you defiantly posted it again but left out the list of questions, but turned it into a rant violation by lashing out at the douchebag who reported it
well, guess what, that douchebag is no douchebag but a seasoned reporter who knew this was a violation and lo and behold, you lost your appeal
145 appeals on 145 violations or 145 appeals on this one? either way, that should tell you you need to figure out what you're doing in this site
Yes. You've incurred two violations in that answer, so let me break this down for you:
1. You have failed to properly answer another user's question, thus incurring a "not a question or an answer" violation. The asker wanted a simple answer on how to get into college and you should have given them a straight answer.
2. Telling the asker "to go back to school and learn their English" is construed as insulting another user. You had no right to do that. This is absolutely unacceptable. Keep in mind there's such a thing called "the respect rule" of the Community Guidelines. What that means you should treat other users with with respect, the same way they should treat you. Rudeness doesn't belong on this site, so you better be careful with whom you're speaking to. The consequences of this are very grave and Customer Care will hash out the appropriate punishment for your actions.
