I've often thought that the typical article should be headlined "You should crawl under a rock and die because you're so wrong about everything", but this article about Yahoo! Answers and it's ... um... interesting use of the word "answer" is a bit more my style.

No one has yet answered this question about why individual season statistics in baseball don't carry over when a player changes leagues. But will anyone have the courage to come up with the answer of, "That's the way it's always been done. The leagues were considered separate entities for decades."

The headline of the article is "Why Yahoo! Answers is a librarian's worst nightmare." It's not my worst nightmare. My worst nightmare involves Joseph Biden, Russ Ortiz, and an oversized peach.
