      • Address the Yahoo Spoofers in pretty much every Yahoo Products post

        They are now 6-7 deep...and apparently I'm out of bullets for the day.

        Time to get someone on this; one report with that graphic or phone # should suspend the account pending appeal and wipe out posts.

        Till then, it may be thousands of these crooks trying to collect $30 a pop from unsuspecting users.

        Have you considered having the FBI kill their phones? Those numbers are being used to commit interstate wire fraud.....

        Obviously, YA hasn't got a cure yet.

        See ya again tomorrow.

        • Do not allow graphics at level 1 and x out phone numbers.

          Every single question under Yahoo Products has 4 spam ads. They appear immediately so it is obvious it is not done manually. Reporting them serves no purpose. Not allowing a graphic at level 1 and xing out all phone numbers would stop it immediately.

          • Explain the current (June 2015) policy regarding suicidal and self-harm Questions.

            The only guideline we have for this dates back to a post from 2009 which no longer exists.

            "Rest assured we take this issue very seriously. When reporting any suicide-related question, please mark it as a ToS violation (additional details: suicide).

            From there, we have to remove the content (a legal requirement) and then we proceed by sending out a special package with advice on how to cope via email.

            This information is compiled with input from leading experts in the field.

            • Don't suspend the most extreme serial trolls. Isolate them instead

              My suggestion with serial trolls is don't suspend them. Instead tag their computer with an identification cookie that directs them through an alternate server that acts as a wrapper to the main site. This alternate server should feed the normal pages, but maintain a separate database that isolates them from the main answers site. The alternate site can store and append/insert their own answers, questions and comments with that from the main feed so that, to them, it will appear as if all is functioning normally. This will effectively isolate them, so they get no answers, comments or updates responding…

              • Spostamento domande altrui

                La possibilità di spostare le domande altrui data ai livelli 7 (e lo dico da livello 7) è stata sbagliatissima.
                Alcuni spostano compulsivamente e ingiustamente le domande di altri, in particolare di quelli che stanno loro antipatici.
                E poi è sbagliato, ognuno dev'essere padrone della propria domanda, non è giusto che altri la possano spostare e mettere dove vogliono.
                Non conviene nemmeno a voi del sito, in quanto poniamo il caso che io faccio una domanda interessante che potrebbe avere tante risposte......immaginiamo che mi allontano poi dal PC........la domanda magari viene spostata in tauromachia, e quando poi ritorno e posso…

                • Add "Report User" Button to User Profiles

                  The Yahoo! categories are chock full of scammers posting ads for "Yahoo! Support." There are hundreds of them posting their full quota of 20 on a regular basis. They are using your trademarks and copyrighted IP in these ads, and they are ripping off your users by using scare tactics to sell worthless computer "fixes" and "maintenance" services which are likely to include the installation of malware.

                  Yahoo! is either incapable of stopping this activity or frankly just doesn't care, as evidenced by Questions answered by Yahoo! staff after these scam ad answers were given, yet the scam/spam remains.

                  So…

                    Missing Questions! Sorry, this is going to be a very long post.

                    Will someone please explain to me why questions that I've answered are going missing? The questions violated no Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. When checking up on them I am presented with "This question does not exist or is under review.". And no, it's not a matter of the 'glitch' that can be resolved by F5 refreshing. I asked one user what had happened and they did not know, they found their question suddenly gone and had not received any sort of violation notice. They simply re-posted…

                    • Discontinue the graphics feature and extend the block limit

                      Allowing graphics in questions and answers was a bad idea and it's being misused by members posting spam and junk. For example a user in the V&V section keeps posting disturbing images there and creates multiple accounts to do so and harass other members.
                      For users like that, 200 is too little a limit and surely the V&V regs would like nothing more than to block this member and their many accounts.

                        Is it a violation when someone posts a ridiculous nonsense answer to a question about what you can do being a level 7?

                        - First-In-Line privileges at Disney parks around the world.
                        - 50 cents off every gallon of gas by entering your confidential Level 7 PIN at the pump.
                        - Exclusive access to super-secret surf beaches on the California coast.
                        - Lunch with NFL superstars at Carl's Jr. on Wednesdays.

                        • Why can't yahoo block the tech support scamers?

                          Why is it that Yahoo cannot block the tech support scammers and get their numbers shut down, especially when they are illegally using Yahoo trademarks and logos in their posts. Every day people post about losing money to these scammers yet Yahoo seems to do nothing about it.
                          Could someone sue Yahoo for losing money if Yahoo refuses to block or delete these posts? Even after reporting the answers do not drop

                              • Yahoo, please return the "number of answers" icon to each question when on the home page.

                                I'm a regular "spam buster" and have noticed that you've just removed the little "icon" that says how many answers a question has received. This is when you're on the home page of each category.

                                I'm reporting the fake Yahoo spammers who post their stuff on recently posted questions, and we now have no way of knowing if a spammer has just posted on a recently-asked question. Well, we do have a way - we now have to click on every single question, a lot of which won't have an answer yet. But we have no way of knowing this…

                                    • Members Who Skirt The Edge As Far As Decency ?

                                      Please check out this posters question .. Is this illegal? Does it break any of Y!A Community Guidelines or TOS? IF anything , we should keep an eye on this type of thing. What the poster insinuates is wrong and possibly illegal. (shudders). QualityJanitor , would you please give me some feedback ? Thank You. ( I don't even know if it is reportable or not). Hate these 'grey' areas of behavior of shady questions....

                                        • im so tired of BEING CALLED OUT BY FOOLS CONSTANTLY WHO HIDE BEHIND BLUE WHILE U ALLOW THIS AND WE CANT SEE WHO THEY ARE...THIS IS UNFAIR...

                                          STOP ALLOWING this....also when we get reported we can only see the answer WITHOUT THE QUES which is not helpful at all..
