YA rules. Is it allowed on this site to ask what country a person is from... such as "what is your country's favorite food? And if you?

want to, please state that country". (No U.S. answers needed).

    no it is not. All questions about the answerer are chat-violations

    Think of it this way, if the question can have no true "best" answer, it doesn't belong on YA.

    I would still answer. If you don't want Americans to answer you only get very few answers. My favorite is a cheese whopper from Brooklyn, NY.

    Frankly I've Always thought EVERY damn question is CHAT.

    You ask, I answer.............isn't THAT chatting?

    and then there's the questions that are supposedly asked by the Yahoo team.......which are often blatant chat questions.........but theirs stay, and mine get deleted.

    Seems fair.

    Strictly speaking, asking for any sort of personal details is a chat violation because it's not seeking knowledge of interest to the broader Yahoo Answers community. But a lot of times, it depends on the details. For example:

    "What color panties are you wearing right now, babe?" [Chat]

    "How do you remove an old stump from your back yard?" [Legit question]
