About Us

We’re here to proudly proclaim that there is no such thing as a stupid answer. Or is that stupid question? No matter. We discuss questions and answers; we ask some, answer others, but mostly chat about questions and answers – and the people who make ‘em happen.

Here’s the first question: Who are we?  We’re a bunch of Answers.com employees, community managers and trivia buffs having a little fun with a blog between asking and answering.

The jargon: Answers.com is the leading community-driven wiki-based Q&A site. Mouthful? We agree. Here are the facts:

  • Anyone can ask or answer questions. Even you. Now all of your seemingly useless knowledge on mousetraps is handy!
  • Since the site is based on wiki-ness, anyone can improve the answer – that way, we all work on creating one correct, informational and expert answer.
  • The Answers.com community is a dedicated group of people (7,875,725+) who promote – by their own participation – the wonderful world of Q&A.

Got any questions? Answers? Thoughts? Suggestions? Hunger pangs? Get in touch. Feel like reading the comics? Go for it.

  1. When it comes to matters of religion all view points should be expected and even apreciated. Unless there is a direct attack on one particular group of people or a blatant disregard for others fealings. Your supervisor Lazarus allows no other points of view aside from his. I challenge anyone to read my responses to see if I have insulted anyone I am mike3815 I left your site because of how censored it is and I have returned to find Lazarus still here. I give your sight a 2 out of 10 at this point. Remove Lazarus and allow a free flow of bible fact and unless its just plain insensitive leave it alone so what if it doesn’t agree with an atheist or a catholic or a protestant. Let’s openly discuss bible fact. Thank-you

  5. Your blurb on Hawaii being then only state growing in size seems incorrect. Alaska has the Aleutians and, as your entry on Alaska accurately says, it is in a stage of continent building:

    Alaska is the largest state in the United States in land area at 586,412 square miles (1,518,800 km2), much larger than Texas, the next largest state. Geologists have identified Alaska as part of Wrangellia, a large region consisting of multiple states and Canadian provinces in the Pacific Northwest which is actively undergoing continent building. Alaska is larger than all but 18 sovereign countries.

  10. Hi Chris,

    The title of the blog is a gesture of… jest. We started it to poke fun of ourselves as well as have a little fun with the Q&A site… Of course, you do make a great point.

    Happy reading!

  11. Sorry to rain on your parade guys – but there most definitely ARE stupid answers! In fact, there are, in the multi-dimensional space of all questions, asked and unasked, since the beginning of time, more stupid answers than wise answers. This is what gave us …. communism, nazism, superstition, human sacrifices, the inquisition, and many many more of the sorry phenomena that have accompanied mankind’s slow trek through time. To pretend that there is no such thing as stupid answers is very dangerous and counterproductive. There are, however, no stupid questions.

  12. Hey Stuart,

    Got your message and I definitely hear where you’re coming from. Did you know that if you are logged in to WikiAnswers, you see significantly less Google Ads? You can stay logged in all the time and that way you’re not subject to as many… Just a tip…

    I really don’t like the new format! That’s because the ‘page down’ key on my keyboard no longer works!
    PLEASE fix this. I’m on a Mac OSX, g5, using Safari.
    Thanks a million!

  14. Hello, I was surfing randomly and found this website. Have a copyright question.
    When I submit information for my anwer, can I re-use my own information in other articles? Do I own the copyright to my information or do I co-own the copyright with Answers.com ? Just want to know to do the correct thing. Thank you for your time.

  15. I’d also like to express my appreciation because you guys rock! I’m in 8th grade so the teachers are a bit psycho and not very clear about where to find the answers to our homework, so this is my last (well, pretty much only) resort. Thanks!
