How come I have to give over fifteen letters response on Y/A answers when other people gave ten letters?

    Because the site has a CHARACTER minimum, not a LETTER minimum (and blank spaces count as characters, for example). Some people know how to type 15 characters without having extraneous letters being visible (they use characters that don't produce an alpha or numeric character in the display)

    Because they are hitting the space bar enough times, for the other 10 characters to be accepted.

    If you type the word "Yes," then press space another 12 times, it will submit & will look like you were able to only post 3 characters.

    All you have to do is use the space bar and one tap is equal to one character.  You could do that 15 times if you want to troll.

    There have to be at least 15 character SPACES in an answer. There do NOT HAVE to be letters or punctuation marks in those spaces. All the computers "read" or count is the number of spaces in the answer. Those spaces can be blank.

    This is how a lot of people take care of it.
