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
Although writing a response to any question will automatically generate two points to the poster, I for one am not one of those who just post to be collecting points. If that were the case, my score would be a whole lot higher than it is.
There have been a couple of times when I contributed to the running gag of the moment, but the majority of my replies have at least been thoughtful (like when Jason N. asked, "What is the meaning of life?") if not totally correct. If I do not know the answer to a question, I have never posted a "I don't know" just to collect the two points.
Therefore, while "cheating" might be an issue within this forum, I do not do so.
And if you do not believe me, then you can ask Yahoo to subtract the two points that posting this response will give me from my total score.

I did asnwer random questions in the beginning just for the points. I hated the limits of levels 1 &2. Now I try to only answer ones that I can make a difference on (but sometimes I stray).
I did notice the L and the I -check it out 'Illinois' or 'Illegal' -they look so strange.

The problem is your focusing on the things in life that don't really matter. When I was a kid I had hopes and dreams. We all did. But over time, the daily grind gets in the way and you miss the things that really matter, even though they are right in front of you, staring you in the face. I think the next time you should ask yourself "Am I on the right track here?". I don't mean to be rude but people like you I really pity. So maybe you could use the few brain cells you have and take advantage of the knowledge I have given you now. Good luck.

It's only my 2nd day using Yahoo answers so I'm pretty sure I'm not a cheater but there sure are lots around. I see so many stupid questions being posted. I think the best way is to just ignore them and not answer their stupid questions.
