Why does WikiAnswers have inappropriate answers?
Inapropriate answers are given by users who just want to mess up the site and ruin WikiAnswer's reputation. That is why Vandal Patrol and Supervisors are always on the look out to eliminate these vandals, or "perpetrators". It's just because users think it is fun to write down inappropriate content, and Supervisors and Vandal Patrol Units are always on the look out. Since WikiAnswers is a wiki, where anyone can have imput, people think it is funny to mess up answers, when it is not.

Most questions will get a reply from a nice person, supervisor, expert, or regular user who can at least point you in the right direction, if not providing you a definitive answer.

Hundreds of new questions are asked every day. . Some questions are virtually unanswerable. To improve your chance of getting an answer, check the spelling (it may already be answered with the correct spelling) and be sure that it is in the form of a question. Asking fragments or statements may not indicate what answer you are looking for.
