Do you answer them? I don't think this is right, so I don't answer this kind of questions. I mean, I do share homework answers with my friends, but atleast we tried to give it a lot of thought the night before, and answer as much as we can. But online? I get the feeling that they don't even try to answer them. They just post them online hoping that someone would answer it for them. And some of the questions were easy! What are your thoughts on this?

I rarely use Yahoo Answers for any of the questions that I have so I am completely clueless as to how this is being used by people. If they use it for homework then good for them. This is a free world after all and getting answers from Yahoo Answers doesn't mean it is the right answer or that it will educate the ones asking the questions. I bet there is a whole world of knowledge out there than the ones being given in Yahoo Answers.

I bet there is a whole world of knowledge out there than the ones being given in Yahoo Answers.That is exactly my point. But the children are getting used to getting their answers in Yahoo Answers that they are not even trying to find out that other world that would actually help them learn.

I have no problem helping people, but you can tell when they want you to do it for them. I think in the long run, these people will only short themselves, for the knowledge they could have gained, they exchanged for their laziness...Some day they'll realize they don't know much...and so will others.

Yeah, you're right. Like this one guy who's looking for passed papers online. It looks like most children nowadays are looking for the easy way out.

I am not actually on yahoo answers now. I was there before but I think they are only using what we know for their own profit, unlike here in myLot. But in those times that I was there, I think I have answered some homeworks. These homeworks are those which are accounting related. It is because I want to improve my knowledge and sharpen my skills more in accounting. That way, I am learning while answering their questions. Have a nice day!

I have never posted questions online for homework questions. I have put questions that I hadn't been able to find answers to, but they were never homework related. I have occasionally done searches and responses came up from yahoo questions, but I never went there looking for them.
