What is considered "inappropriate" subject matter on Answers?
Any question that is asking for answers that contains any of the
1. Questions providing personal information (this is for your
safety - both the question asker AND the answerer).
2. Items for sale or wanted to buy, using the website as an online
market place. You may want to try eBay instead!
3. Questions designed to promote plagiarism, as in cut-and-paste.
For example, directly copying a question from a Penn Foster exam.
4. Lists or examples of curse or swear words.
5. Questions of a sexual nature. We recognize that there are
legitimate questions about this subject, but since this is an
educational site that is allowed at many schools, we ask you to go
to other legitimate places to find good answers to those questions.
WebMD, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.gov),
kidshealth.org/en/teens/sexual-health, and many other places offer
6. Questions designed to be inflammatory, with little or no
7. Questions about how to join a gang or other criminal
organization. We believe in peace!
8. Questions asking for usernames, passwords, or accounts on any
internet community website.
a) If you are asking about an online game, try asking for
tips on how to get an item or how to get to the next level, instead
of just asking for their item or account.
b) In the case of email - to keep users safe, we don't allow
questions asking for email addresses or passwords. We suggest you
create your own email account with your own password.
c) Finally, asking for passwords for servers and admin
accounts on websites is considered an attempt at hacking, which is
a federal offense.
9. Questions asking for master passwords to a computer. We have no
way of knowing if the computer was stolen, you are trying to break
into one, or if it is actually yours.
10. Questions pertaining to any illegal activity.
11. Questions pertaining to illegal drugs.
