Survey: Is the following question considered "chatting" by You?

Deleted Question: What would REALLY get you peeved off if you found it on your Lawn?

Question Details:

Violation Reason:Chatting

Yahoo! took 4 days to delete this one. Do I have a troll lurking? My very last answer had to do with lurking trolls! What is your OPINION, which shall not be mistaken as chatting specifically for this SURVEY question. Thanks!


Chatting or not?

Update 2:

Neen, GOOD ADVISE! I'll miss all my contacts or stop asking questions.

Update 3:

Saaaayyyy, also good advise, I might try it. Either way, I am counting the number of answers to THIS question and the number who say NOT chatting and fight yahoo! So far no one said it was chatting.

    I reckon the system needs to be changed, so that after a period of time, the question can't be reported. Something like that, if it was missed the first time, then some troll will just hit report anyway while jerking off to 50 cent. That could stop them in their tracks.

    Nope not chatting.

    I personally feel that :

    You have a lurking/stalking troll hun.

    You have most likley been around long enough to get one.

    Don't worry about it, we all get meaningless, senseless, frustrating violations. Even if you try to fight it, yahoo will just send you an auto generated email stating that "after reviewing your apeal and the content in question, Yahoo Answers Admin has concluded that your content was indeed a violation of the SOT agreement. . . . . ." bla bla bla

    What I do is make getting a BS Violation a reward system. For every BS Nonsence Violation I get to award myself with a new pair of shoes!

    My latest violation, which was considerd a rant when it wasn't, awarded me some very sexy, bright red, three inch heals compliments of my stalker.

    If my account gets deleted due to BS violations I have decided that I will spend a whole day at a spa!


    All content above is to be considerd my detailed answer to the above question, as my intent was never to "chat" with the asker.

    Not chatting going by your Q at all. Was there anything inside the Q with your remarks that could be considered chatting? Anything the people answering did should not affect your Q as that would be their violation if there was one. I really do not see it as a violation at all.

    I think Yahoo must want us to create new accounts to make it look like they have that many more users. Plus they leave the old suspended accounts somewhat active. The more active accounts they show, the more they can charge advertisers a higher fee.

    Hi that is not a chatting question thats ridiculous

    you should appeal it !!!!

    thats a perfectly valid question, im so sick of chatting violations everything is considered as chat nowadays you only have to breathe and uv got 10 violations !! i think its the people on the forum they are really getting pissed off with us in p and s for avatar games u should read some of their comments we are all naughty! lol

    i always get a little suspicious when a question is deleted after it being up a while either yahoo is slow or u have a troll amongst ur contacts or fans?

    ps its not me !!! lol

    No, of course it's not "chatting" whatever that means. Definitely a troll looking to earn his or her "trusted snitch" badge. Pathetic. Your question, of course, is so broad you're not *really* looking for information here. Which doesn't matter to me. The last thing I want to do is answer another stupid "homework help" question. The little ingrates most of the time take your answer and never even bother to give a best answer, they got what they wanted. Anyway, please consider my answer "chatting", whatever that means, because I wanted to take the time to respond to your question. Geez, according to Yahoo's ridiculously skewed guidelines, if you open your mouth, you're automatically chatting. But again, it's not Yahoo. It's a friggin' troll. I think it's interesting that Yahoo's original intent for the word "troll" was for those people that don't get with the program on here, but it has come to mean, by and large, those scum sucking bottom dwelling dweeb idiots that actually report people for not getting with the program. And rightly so.

    I last night and today have purposely put questions on and not added any details only reasonable questions to see if I would recieve violations and I have, there was no reason given not even chatting so how can they violate? they can't but they do and they can because it's their site and we by not doing something to make them listen are saying they can!! and yes you do have a troll I have many! x

    I don't think it as chatting.For Pete sake I answered that question.It seems to me that you have an upset troll.If yahoo was going to delete it themselves I think it would have been done right away not 4 days later.I think we should have a troll lynching one of these days.

    So sorry to here that your question was violated.I wonder if you ask it again if it would be violated again if a troll isn't watching.

    It's not chatting.

    It's hard to believe someone browsing through p&s found that question offensive, so it does seem likely that it was a personal attack. Perhaps someone who you (I'm sure through no fault of your own) annoyed just recently started looking for ammo. I would look back through your Q&A looking for disgruntled people and then block them.

    I don't know that you need to delete all your fans, but it might not be a bad idea to purge the ones you don't recognize, and perhaps any new ones you're not sure of, and then set your Q&A to private. Your fans will still be able to follow you.

    This whole game is chatting...BUt Y!Answers just doesn't want it to be obvious... Anyway, to answer you...NO. I once got a violation for asking how to change my breaklight. They said it was chatting..and it turned out I did have a troll. A jealous ugly chick with nothing better to do...

    That is not chatting! Some troll probably reported you. I had resolved questions that were two weeks old and got violation notices for them! Even keeping everything private doesn't safeguard against those damn trolls!!
