We know "inappropriate" can be a bit subjective, so if you're wondering what Answers' standards are, we're here to explain!

Remember - staying safe online should be your priority while surfing the 'net. By removing inappropriate content, we are doing our part in keeping our community safe!

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.
