If "test question" means something posted to experiment withAnswers.com: Yes, but please contact us afterward, so that we candelete it when you are done testing. (See the discussion for how tocontact us.) If "test question" means a question on an exam: There's nothingreally stopping you. As long as… it's appropriate to be asked insuch a format, you can ask pretty much anything. However, asking itsomehow during the test would be unethical. It's called cheating ifyou do that. Also, I wouldn't count on it being answered beforeyou're done taking the test. If it is an open-book, take-home test,then no problem. If "test question" means a copyrighted question from an officialstandardized test, then no... that would be plagiarism. (MORE)

It was automatically changed to " Your Dad said (so and so) - is that true?" (It has since been corrected to read: "Some have said (so and so) - is that true?") (MORE)
Yes. We ask lots of questions. We just answer and edit a lot more often, and it is a lot easier on the site to see when someone has done something with an answer, so it is probably harder to notice. :)

The Supervisors are real people, but they have a lot of knowledge on the site and how it works. If they don't know the answer to your question, they will research it out and try to help you the best that they can. Please see the Related Link below to view a list of Supervisors you can contact, via their Answers.com message board.

You can ask any honest question, about anything. And what's more, I strongly encourage you to do so. We think it's better to talk about things, instead of keeping them inside. However, it's also fair to say you may or may not get an answer. No-one here is required to answer any question -- it's u…p to them. Also, on the topic of suicide, while we'll gladly discuss this, we won't go into recipes or how-to answers on this topic, for reasons I bet are obvious :} Hit us with your question and see what happens.
