July 18, 2019 / By Avis
Question: Yeah, i saw a question: (this one) http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080831083240AA0UexI that was obviously very accurate, but i dont know if i can use it in my college paper.. How would i prove that it is credible, say that it got thumbs up? Could i use it in my paper or do you think it is not credible enough. i obviously know it is, but how could i cite this like in-text to prove that it's scholarly or whatever?? Thanks.

Just cite the URL address of the question with the answer according to MLA format. Whether the answer is correct or had thumbs up is irrelevant. You are citing a source correctly using MLA format,

You could be really mean to the other posters and check no best answer, kind of a mean thing to do. Also you may be able to talk to the teacher/professor in advance, explain that it's your account, your answer.

How approximately some human beings ought to discover interviews from a random source. another usual source is overused and that i myself ought to discover an Interview source. so Yahoo solutions is between the greater suitable places to pass.

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: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:vuuwL80ToL0J:https://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index%3Fqid%3D20140520043732AA6jhry+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca "And also 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
