Make it easier to report and suspend problem users who harass others
People are getting away with harassment on a daily basis take this individual for example who is a long time user and has been getting away with this insulting and bullying for years he goes by LAN
nearly every answer he gives insults the asker of the question and has been regularly violating community guidelines and terms of service and there is no way to contact yahoo about it
need more proof just look at his answer where he calls the asker stupid when they asked a real question and wanted real answers

There's also a user named Shadowfire Lives, a longtime troll who operates multiple accounts for the purposes of evading blocks and bans.
Whenever he gets suspended, he makes another account and starts asking more troll questions and leaving troll answers. He falsely reports whoever he doesn't like.

I'm with Andrew Smith. I've been suspended because of overzealous reporters. Some really respectful users have been suspended u guess because some passionate users know how to have their reports accepted
Andrew Smith commented
It seems that something has already been done. Without insulting anyone nor breaching a single rule it appears that my own account has been suspended. Of course there is no confirmation of this nor any possibility of even querying it.
Also check for nazi/satanist spam troll, perhaps it is the same person who attacks me.
Often he claims to be for Palestine and against Israel/Zionists.
There were questions mocking Islam by use of Paint pictures by multiple fake muslim accounts, then this person it seems created another account as if of a Chinese Christian - Sparkles.
--Possibly also user Yoel Cohen, who pretends to be a Jew, but sometimes slips and claims to support JW or Islam, as he often appears at the same time as above
and encourages harassment of user Juli, in question below:

Keep intimidating her by spamming jw.org and don't stop harassing her until she leaves Yahoo Answers.

Please deal with a serial troll with multiple accounts on yahoo answers R&S.
Impersonation; forgery = i am being harassed by a person with multiple accounts.
This is my account (Oleg)
This person is spreading falsehood about me, with screenshots of a question,
as if posted by me,
but it seems from one of his accounts, temporarily renamed to my name (Oleg)
See example of such questions - blaming me as being against BLM or denying Holocaust (possibly he is the same user who often spams Nazi/Satanist sites, since i confronted one such person, and after this he started harassing me):
Then using multiple accounts to blame me for his own conduct.
Check out also the anonymous accounts accusing me, in above questions.
Also another accusing person, not sure if the same or not. See question below:
Perhaps this is account of the impersonator, previously named as Triggered, then renamed to Munkee, now Oleg; there is also another similar account called Mary renamed to Marina and another Horace,
which pretended to be a Christian to mock Christians, yet in other questions insulted Christian faith:
Perhaps this is another account of the same person (Susie Floozie).
But i am not sure:
I was on here for some time. Indeed, spent my two hours in the evening twice a week...but bumped into a person who went by the name of 'Dorothy' - who happened to have a handful of 'friends' who would assist in reporting others who they didn't like on here. The target didn't have to be 'rude' or even 'difficult'...just someone who they couldn't handle when it came to questions they didn't like - which usually involved race. I ended up being kicked off - and tried to return on 'appeal' without much joy. As time went on, people who I had met on here - and had got on with had also got on the wrong side of 'Dot's' gang, and found themselves targeted, with others deciding to just leave - now these were the kind who made Y!A what it was in the beginning - attractive and intelligent. It was towards the end of 2017 a circus and terrifying for anyone who realised most of the 'Level 7' punters were abusive, and had Yahoo wrapped around their little fingers.

I also have totally obsessed insanely jealous stalker in Thailand who has been maliciously targeting me AND my email accounts with the intention of reporting my answers so many times that triggers multiple automatic account suspensions over 50 times over 11.5 years. Now that reporting my answers no longer works, that has turned into a team of people who excessively thumb down 95% or more of my answers. I mailed both you and Verizon over 350 times over 6 months about this excessive abuse. All that happened was he lost over 60,000 points and regained 21000 points very quickly.
I do NOT want this account to be suspended. All I want is his account being set back to level 1 with 100 parts like I have had to do so many times. He claims to part of a Yahoo neo Group.

There is a user named LAN who regularly abuses people and while I do not mind myself I am afraid others will mind and hurt themselves. He harasses and insults members and both are violations of TOS. I do not understand either why we cannot have him removed from Yahoo Answers. All I did was a chatting violation and my answer was deleted. I don't get it either.
Also another serial nudist / adult content troll. I guess he also posts pornographic pictures in his answers.
See his questions for example, so that you can delete his account fully.
Also there is a serial muslim spammer who spreads hate against Jews.
Here is his account.
He goes to old questions and starts spamming comments under all answers such as this:
"Nigel1 hour agoReport
BE HAPPY COS ALLAH ONLY WANT TO BURN JEWS, REDDIT, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, YAHOO AND YOUTUBE FAMILY ALIVE, YEAHHH
(Google "Danny Woo VK" in Bing for book of life, A science book that dont exist in human world)
No next time, you mean your family no next life is it. Lol"
As in this question:
Indeed, look at the two answers by the same user calling out other users https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20200114151245AAaropi
Anon a, both cheesy accounts - https://answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=FmDOFm3Jaa
He has dozens of accounts and frequently posts the same a about users
Why is he allowed to do this daily?
Also there is an anonymous user obsessed with an anime and vomiting fetish, who keeps posting unrelated obscene pictures in Religion&Spirituality.
Here's an example of his question:
Another of his accounts:
Please check who this is and deal with this person.
There is also the user obsessed with ******, fecal matter and posting obscene questions from multiple accounts like Toilet John, carter, etc.

LAN needs to be banned. He has no kind or even neutral answers. They're all mean and rude.
Yes, we need an emailaddress like firstname.lastname@example.org to report repeat-offenders
