And On A Lighter Note.....

Never let it be said that I don't do my best to help my fellow human better themselves. I dabble in the Yahoo Answers forum, from time to time, especially in the cycling section, helping people with repair and fitness issues. Occasionally I venture outside the cycling page to answer another question that piques my interest, and did so the other day.

I got an email message following one of my reply postings:

From: Yahoo! Answers
Subject: Violation Notice Email

So I went to the posted question, and indeed they had taken my answer down.

Well...Excuuuuuuuse me!!!!

So I went to my internet cache and dug out the offending page (this is a JPG version, click to enlarge):

But they let the answers "Do you by any chance have a pet snake also?" and "ask the cat" stand? Some people have no sense of humor.......

I can't believe you can be so cold and offensive. Have you no humanity!
Play by the rules.

I thought the snake comment was worse than yours. Realize the bar has been set higher and go for it next time!
