NOT necessarily. Just because an answer is factually wrong or incorrect does NOT make that answer a violation. IF the answer is m an intentionally malicious misleading answer depending on how it phrased, it MAY or MAY NOT.. be a violation. someone may a factually correct answer and then tell you to ignore another answer from another person because what THAT answer says, THAT is definitely a violation.
When you are trying to figure out whether to report either a question or answer, can you justify WHY you reported that particular question or answer to a Yahoo or or Verizon staff member. Rembmer that ANYONE SHOULD be able to appeal when their answers have been reported enough to trigger the computer programs that remove their answer from the YA display..
If you are talking about the YA helpline phone numbers, those are ALWAYS likes and should ALWAYS be reported. Yahoo has not had technical support help phone number for more than 3 YEARS.
Just because an answer is a lie or factually incorrect does NOT automatically mean it a violation.
Yes, usually answers with accusations are NON-answers which should be reported for POINT GAMING because they DID NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED, NOT because the answer is a "lie' in YOUR judgement. YOU are NOT an impartial objective judge. If an answer is an accusation, and it does NOT answer the question that was acked DIRECTLY, yes, that is NON-ANSWER point gaming violation.
