Moving Questions to Other Categories

I like the idea of moving questions to a better category to improve the nature of Yahoo Answer/Questions. But there are times where you have some people that spoil it for others. To keep people from moving questions malicious. Limit the how many times a single question could be moved, to maybe twice. The poster of the question may think that their question is in the appropriate category.

    Ramadan is always filled with General Spiritual Questions, Questions Not Specific to the Holy Month, just Islamic trolling. And the trolls keep moving the non-specific questions back to Ramadan.

    Trolls have taken over Answers, Every day, I check my answers and move them back to the proper category where I answered them....and I often gave to do the same thing over AND OVER AGAIN RIGHT AFTER I've moved the questions back.

    THIS NEEDS TO STOP HAVING PEOPLE BE ANONYMIOUS. PEOPLE ARE MAKING ME LOOK LIKE A JOKE AND HAVE MENTAL ISSUES WHICH IF YOU SEE MY QUESTIONS I DO NOT HAVE A ******* MENTAL PROBLEM. ALSO BRING BACK BLOCKING PEOPLE MEANING THEY CAN'T NOT SEE MY PROFILE AND QUESTION WHERE THEY CAN CHANGE THE CATEGORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Trolls are responsible for moving questions to inappropriate categories.... I have to check may answers feed every day and move questions BACK to the proper category! It is hard to find questions to answer in my category and earn points because of these trolls. Answers needs to find a way of tracking who moves questions maliciously!

    The question's category can be changed by someone other than the asker or respondents, and, in the event of trolls doing so, there is no way to report him/her. The asker should be the one to decide the category. As such, there should be a way for the asker to lock the category (perhaps with a Yahoo moderator approving such) or, at the very least, a way to report vandalistic category changes.

    I agree. people move questions to ridiculous categories, such as Rodents, because they didn't like the political question which was asked. This is being abused.

    Good idea BUT sometimes, questions do not appear at all public. I saw that those questions appear if you move them to another section and back. To move them three times would be good.
