    Yet I get answers removed, such as "Benghazi", or "Cool Story bro" for "violating community standards", and the appeal system does not work. Now I am suspended and no one will tell me why. Even this appeal system no body responds to. Answers has become a pathetic joke.

    Some of these posts reasonably deserve an instant and permanent deletion of that account. Others deserve an instant 30 day suspension. It's become increasingly obvious you have to go beyond just user reporting.

    If anyone takes the trouble to look at the politics section on Yahoo answers, they will see the most juvenile and disgusting posts ever. User reporting has never really been effective. Hire just ONE person to clean it up. Pay them minimum wage. You could probably even get free volunteers. A team of ten such volunteers, all of them fair and moral people, would do wonders for Yahoo answers. The fairest way would be to get maybe three volunteers to agree that a question should be deleted. But at least start with just ONE person. It's actually becoming embarrassing to look at yahoo answers!

    Do we really want children seeing it? Or anyone for that matter?

    That's a good question. 'T' Posted this nov 1. It's now november 17. The question is juvenile, disgusting, and clearly adult content. Why is it taking so long to review it? What's the holdup? Why is it not deleted when reported?

    Yahoo has been no
    Help to me at all. Idk what other people are experiencing but for customer service you have to pay. Found this out through someone asking the same question as me. Deleting questions. Yahoo you gotta fix not being able to delete our own questions. And you need to recognize when someone reports something innapropriate. I just don’t understand why it hasn’t been fixed.

    obviously the question is wrong, a technicality in user rating, if user is higher than report, then requires more reporters, but too often high end users are immune to reports no matter who thumbs or flags, those are Yahoo community users with immunity to reports, and access to Yahoo services, which could troll reporters,

    and also was banned from Answers.

    I know it takes reports from multiple users for a question to be deleted so maybe it hasn't been reported by enough people. I would have reported it but I've been banned for life so I can't help.
