Actually, I've only had 2 questions of mine deleted in the whole time I've been here. I've asked a total of 52 questions.
I can tell you that the first one was "What is the answer to this question"? [asked in the Yahoo! Answers category 9 months ago]
Yeah, I guess you can say that that was a stupid question...I didn't read the guidelines and I was wondering if anyone actually knew the answer/knew what to write...it was a stupid but interesting question anyways [besides, 9 months ago....that was when I first came to Y!A, I was a n00b]. To my surprise some one did. They explained how the answer is actually "the answer" because there is always an answer.
And some retard even answered: "I had sex with my girlfriend last night" and I was like "@that guy, errm, no that's not the answer."
Question got deleted a few days later, the reason being: "Not a question or an answer".
I later figured out that the answer could also be 42 :I
My second question was " Which anime u watching now?" [asked in C&A 9 months ago].
I gave a list of the anime I was watching and put a few comments next to some of them. I happened to get in a fight with a few people who answered because I wrote:
Bleach [Don't even know why I bother]
They misunderstood and started the fight. I apologized with a long paragraph explaining to them that the reason I wrote that was because I was reading the manga that took waay less time to read then watch the anime and at the same time, I was ahead in the manga so watching the same thing again in the anime was a pointless waste of time. But I never said that Bleach was bad or anything.
They replied with something like:"Don't diss Bleach.....the anime is different to manga...."
My question got deleted the next day for the reason: "Chatting".
Other than the violations for my 2 questions [which I didn't even bother appealing], I have also recieved violations for my 2 of my answers [failed to appeal, both Twilight related].
The first one was reported by the Yahoo! Answers community [2 months ago]. Some person asked for Twilight movie downloads and yeah I answered with 3 links. It seemed that I was reported because of either/both:
1. 2 of the links expired and led to advertising [of some sort, idk]
2. It's illegal to give links for download......well, lets just say "piracy"
The second one was 4 days ago and heck, the question still lives:
My answer was -apparently- very rude and malicious.
Reason for deletion: "Insulting Other Participants"
Deleted Answer [the whole answer]: Would you GTFO? You know what? I've just had it with these Twilight questions in the WRONG F*CKING CATEGORY. Have you guys ever heard of the word "READ"? Edit: I take the thumbs down as a "NO". Edit: Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to hear from you to have enough evidence to f*cking REPORT you, mofo.
Haha, dumb sh!t. Edit: I swear that this question was gone...
Ok, Erin, I replied your email and I admit that I went a little overboard.
Seeing that this is the first time you asked one of these in C&A and you were unaware of the situation, just remember to redirect the Twilight Qs to the B&A or Movies next time. Ok?
End of story.
Our fellow members of C&A all helped to report the Q but unfortunately she managed to appeal [so Y!A loves to listen to those who actually made the mistake rather than those who tell them to correct the mistake. I NEVER won an appeal >_>] and of course saw that I wrote "report" in caps so she also reported me back.
My answer got deleted like 10 mins after the very last edit, WHICH she didn't even get to read.
Yeah, the girl sent me an email later on:
From: erin <333
Subject: hey, umm u asnwered and trashed my edward/bella q? i just want to apoligize.
Message: my friend, who gets hurt easily, put that up there. and she never had been on Y!A and didnt know about the catagories, i was about to delete it, then i got reported. by YOU. i only wrote all that stuff cuz when she saw all those swears well, ya. im sorry, and please if you choose to respond to me, refrain from swearing. i just wanted to clear it all up. again im sorry
Nah, it's alright.
I guess it wasn't totally your fault, I used to just reply with a friendly "Wrong category, try B&A or Movies or something" but up to recently, we've been stormed with Twilight questions. People get fed up. Some of those fans proceeded to ask even more Twilight questions in C&A >because< we asked them to categorize correctly.
I'm sure I wasn't the only one that reported you, it takes a minimum of 2 or sometimes 3 people to report the same question to get it deleted....[If it took only one, there really won't be many questions still surviving to this date].
Well, that was the first time I actually lost my cool so I guess I overreacted and started swearing and stuff [I usually don't]. Sorries.
[Answer deleted the next day, it made me a bit angry but guilty as well...this is why I hate Twilight fangirls]
So to sum it up, everytime I see a violation my reaction is:
3. Who did this?!?!?
4. *plots revenge on the person*
5. Feels guilty
Sorry If this was a bit long, I just felt the need to tell the story of my immature life as a naive teenager...lol.
