I primarily answer questions in the "Computers & Internet" category. About 100+ times per day, I will see questions like this one:
How to change current password? (https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20141...
This question, even though it is a question, simply can't be answered without additional details supplied by the asker. And as an answerer, it's against the rules to ask questions in your answer ("The password to what?"). In essence, these questions simply can't be answered. I have looked at the Community Guidelines (https://answers.yahoo.com/info/community_guideline... and the only part I can see this fitting into would be Misusing Answers, specifically the part about being incomprehensible. But I don't know if I would classify this question as incomprehensible since you can clearly understand what the asker is asking--the question simply needs more context in order to be answered.
I don't want to start reporting these questions only to lower my reporting rating/reputation. Thanks!2 AnswersYahoo Answers6 years ago
I see lots of questions in a similar format to this one:
I don't know how to use a flash drive (https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20141...
To me, this isn't a question because, grammatically, it's simply not a question. It's a statement. And since the asker didn't include any additional details, you still don't know what he's "asking."
Does this question violate the community guidelines and should be reported?1 AnswerYahoo Answers6 years ago
