Posting just a yes or a no is technically spam.

If you don't have any more to say on the subject, you don't need to make a post.

Wow anthrax your so helpful to everyone, you know, your really kind to people who you know nothing about and all your posts are really worth reading.... Well that was a total lie but my point is if for once, just once if you climbed out your ass for a few seconds and realised that just because you don't agree with there beliefs doesnt mean there a 'troll' or whatever. oh by the way if yu keep going around pissing people off and making fun of what they believe in what does that say about you? Childish, stuck up, someone who really needs to get a life, I could go on but theres a 900 letter limit. aww

ok, good thoughts you guys.

so about the actual question...

If they were in the Iraqi or the Afghani army then sure, they can be prisoners of war. But I'm not sure if they can technically be considered prisoners of war if they're not in the military of any nation.

Which begs the questions, if they're not prisoners of war and they're not under arrest on suspicion of any crime, then on what basis are they being held?

Is it legal for our government to just detain people from other countries like that?

Should it be legal?

Not since 'the change'. As a mod, I thought you'd know that! People can post all the one-word answers they want now. Just like they can add any question they want, no matter how many times it's already on the site.

From the CoC:

"REGULAR WARNING

Spam - Including, >>but not limited to<<: counting threads, advertising, unsolicited PMs to many members at once, saying "first post!", talking to yourself in a public thread (using your own name or alters."

It's not limited to the items specified. And posting a single word answer that is one of the available buttons already could certainly qualify.

And we still delete duplicate questions, we're just not as stringent about it, especially if the other instances are very old. But it's still something we do, and should in fact be more diligent about.

I see dozens of repeats every day - I can't imagine many are being deleted. And the one-word answer thing was taken out of the FAQ because mods were having to delete tons of posts every day.

No. Under the Geneva convention on P.O.W.s, enemy personnel captured out of uniform may be legally executed on the spot. Which is why the IRA stopped pushing to have their lads recognized as P.O.W.s
