    Love the Q/A on Yahoo Answers. Some people only put in 1 word as an answer-I guess to add up points. There should be a word # minimum limit. 20 or so. I’ve noticed that some answers seem to be inappropriate or just a put down to the asker. Why can’t they just answer the questions without being mean or insulting?
