How long does it take the typical YA user to figure out that this is an automated system?

And that no one is sitting in an office reading each question or each answer or each violation report for content?

And that this is a participant-moderated venue?

I think YA is actually an IQ test and our group stupidity is what is being monitored.


SuzyQ70, are you sure that you're answering the same question that I asked?

    It didn''t take very long for me, considering the responses I got when I filed reports said the exact same thing every time.

    It certainly is habit forming.

    Who doesn't want to show how smart they are?

    Remember in the 1980's when Tetris came out, there was a conspiracy theory that the Russians invented it to distract the rest of the world so the communists could take over?

    I think a lot of them still live in hope that their beliefs are true, wait until they get their first violations, then the penny drops
