• Spurious reports with non-functioning appeal link?

    I've been using YA for about 7 years without breaking it's rules but have recently had a spate of 'violoation reports' for apparently spurious reasons, and with links for appealing which do not work.

    I've been using YA for about 7 years without breaking it's rules but have recently had a spate of 'violoation reports' for apparently spurious reasons, and with links for appealing which do not work. Am I being targeted by a hacker or a malicious reporter? How do I get through to make appeals? One report followed me reponding to a technical question about using shotguns for hunting, which had somehow ended up under 'Transport - Rail', by advising the asker to re-post under 'Hunting' where he would be more likely to get a useful answer. Another was when someone asked if a child (no age stated)could safely make a train journey alone and I replied 'What age is the child?' In both, while I was not directly giving an answer I think these were sensible and constructive responses.

  • Origins of clockwork / windup radio?

    Many sources state that Mr Trevor Baylis invented the wind-up radio in the 1980's. However some elderly radio hams I know claim to have seen German- or Czechoslovakian-made clockwork radio receivers on sale in Britain in the 1930's, and say that they lost popularity and went off the market when light cheap batteries become available. Which... show more

  • French film, made pre-1985, with multiple endings ?

    I saw the film years ago, can't recall the title, director, or much of the plot. It was centred around a married couple, they were preparing for some friends coming to visit, the scenes were shown out of order and with several different endings mixed in (e.g. in one ending the group are strolling happily along a tree-lined road, in another... show more

It was centred around a married couple, they were preparing for some friends coming to visit, the scenes were shown out of order and with several different endings mixed in (e.g. in one ending the group are strolling happily along a tree-lined road, in another terrorists burst into the house and shoot them). Can anyone name it?

  • Why does YA put cycling under sport not transportation?

    I've been using Yahoo Answers for some time but when I found nothing about cycling under 'transportation' I had assumed it was not here at all. :( I've just found it under sport. But cycling is a perfectly viable form of transport, not just a leisure activity.
