    I know what you mean.

    Maybe because they think if you don't have over 20 characters it's not a real question.

    But i really have no idea.

    Just an example of Yahoo's random rules (or S rules).... like when they switched my original Yahoo homepage to their new m.yahoo (new and blue) one without asking.

    so that the younger kids wont go on and on about their problems trying to get everyone's attention... like

    "OMG HEEEEEEEEEELP ME PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE I REALLY NEED HELP THIS GUY IM INTO SAID I LOOKED GOOD DOES HE LIKE ME SHOULD I GO OUT WITH HIM HEELP ME PLEASE 10 POINTS...."

    i could be wrong but im just guessing since this site is flooded with little kids
