Does the following question violate the Community Guidelines at Ask.com: "Is the speed of light faster than the speed of shadow?"

Report as

You might want to consider that a "shadow"can only occur when there is some form of occlusion of light. A shadow is not necessarily the absence of light, since shadows have gradations (pure dark would imply the complete absence of any photons). Both the words "shadow" and "darkness" are not scientific descriptions without scientific modifiers.

I would say so. It's unanswerable nonsense. This website is not designed for silly riddles.

It's not necessarily a riddle. The Asker may not know that there's no such thing as the speed of shadow, in which case, wouldn't it be legitimately helpful/informative to receive an answer that clarifies the erroneous thinking?

No it is within the guide line, cause that is one of those equal and opposite things which are in Einstein's laws. The answer is they are the same speed, cause a shadow is the absence of light, and light is the absence of shadow. Most would used the word darkness for this but it refers to the same thing. However, I could see how a mod would see it as a question with no answer and remove it.
