What is considered "inappropriate" subject matter on Answers?
Any question that is asking for answers that contains any of the following:

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 accurate information.

6. Questions designed to be inflammatory, with little or no informational value.

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.

What is subject matter of Logic?

One eminent philosopher has given a direct response to this question. Namely, Ludwig Wittgenstein contended that Logic is about the boundaries of reality. Although it's not necessary, perhaps we should say a little about Wittgenstein's professor and the eminent philosopher Bertrand Russell. According to Russell, logic is the fundamental structure of all language. That all sentences have an underlying structure that followed the rules of logic, such that logic is, perhaps, about the structure of language. Taking this idea in a much different direction (the early) Wittgenstein argues that logic structures the limits of our thinking. For Wittgenstein our thinking is shaped by our language. That is, when we think of the Cartesian doubting whether anyone else has ever thought, whether he or she is the only one who is really thinking, Wittgenstein denies this altogether. Specifically, the only reason the Cartesian can think is because they have been immersed in a language (This, with the development of psychology, linguistics, etcetera, has proved dubious). So, in essence, language shapes our thinking, but it also shapes the way we understand reality. According to Wittgenstein language describes situations or states of affairs. That is, it gives us pictures of reality. If I say, "Tomorrow it will rain," on the early Wittgenstein's view, this is "painting" a picture of reality. What is more, language describes reality, such that it is reality. What we know about reality and how we describe reality is only expressed through language. Thus, when we want to understand reality, we want to know not just what it is at the moment, but how it might be. Here comes the punch line. Logic tells us the limits on how the world might be or can be. For instance, it's an incontrovertible fact of logic that one thing cannot be in two places at the same time. It is true in all possible worlds that P and not-P is false. Thus, we can use this as a limit on how the world might be. For instance, I cannot be both in Tokyo and not in Tokyo (say in Los Angeles) simultaneously; it cannot be both raining and not raining in the same place at the same time (strictly speaking); and so on. In this sense, logic, according the Wittgenstein tells us what the structure and limits of reality are. Specifically, they form the boundaries of our thinking and language

What is the subject matter of insurance?

In General, SME means Subject Matter Experts. Subject Matter of Insurance is expert in insurance domain business. So you might ask what is the difference between BA - business and SME in insurance. BA will be knowing only the insurance business term but a SME will be able to say the whole business. Let me give a example in P&C insurance, BA will know for what the Bodily injury liability coverage is provided and premium charged. But a SME will be knowing how the premium is derived for Bodily injury liability coverage ie the first base premium is calculated. we also derive class factor for the insured. Class factor = primary factor + secondary factor. The factors include age,youth,married, MVR record, insurance score from CLUE report (get from third party like Choice point, FAIR...) and applicable discounts like deference driver, passive restraint(air bag). The overall discounts include multi-car or package(more than one LOB) policy.. SME will be able to say the entire insurance business system but BA cannot... I think you have a better understanding.... Karthikeyan

What subject matter was used by Rembrandt?

Excerpt, and some sites: Rembrandt's subject matter was as diverse as Amsterdam and he etched myriad intimate observations from everyday life including scenes of beggars, children, animals, and various people at their professions. Many of these "genre" pieces capture the same psychological intenseness as his commissioned portraits.. http://www.franklinbowlesgallery.com/SF/Artists/ . Rembrandt/Pages/sf_rembhome.html . In the cases of The Musicians, The Mummers and The Drummers we are able to see how Rembrandt used the reflections to double the subject matter. There are nearly eighty other examples of this procedure that could be cited among Rembrandt's drawings. http://www.saverembrandt.org.uk/cms/content/view/1/32/
