I don't know about everyone else, but if I find a question to be racist, ethnocentric or bigoted against a religious or sexual preference, I tend to ignore it. Two points is not worth my dignity. I have found that it is not just young teens who ask such questions. But a large portion of annoying and blatantly stupid questions are. (When I say blatantly stupid, I am NOT referring to those who are asking questions that are intended to be humorous or clever. I'm referring to those asking "am I pretty" "which girl is prettier" "i had sex, could I be pregnant" "why can't I have a $3,000 sweet sixteen,does my mom hate me" I don't think Answers is a forum for showcasing ignorance, selfishness, and downright stupidity. It's supposed to be a place for real questions, as well as a friendly and fun environment.
If there are some people who are constantly being berated for being a "stupid teen" generally I've found it's because they are behaving like one. That's not to say all teens are stupid. But I have had answers to some of my own humorous questions by young girls who think I'm the devil incarnate.
As for the fighting and bickering.. take a look at the world around you...there is fighting and bickering everywhere...Yahoo isn't going to be any different.
