  2. 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

    https://answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=j3Nh99eeaa

    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

  4. Allow us to block Anonymous answerers!

    A lot of times, our questions are filled with troll answers who go Anonymous. This way, we can't block them and they continue to troll in our questions.

    If we can block Anonymous users, this problem will be solved!

  5. Get rid of the user who is stalking me

    For quite some time now, a particular user has been impersonating me in R&S. Not only does this person think it is funny to clone me and steal my profile pictures, he is actively trying to get me reported and suspended as the imposter.

    His account is the level two top contributor account, most likely because he point games to compensate for the points I get taken away from him for impersonating me. I want the account suspended. I want future accounts with my name on them deleted unless they can answer some basic questions about me.

    If Verizon cannot…

  6. WHY In GODS name did you change the category leaderboards to reflect total POINTS instead of Total BA's in that category?

    You haven't updated the overall POINT Leaderboards in Years...... yet, you have now changed the Category Leaderboards to reflect POINTS, which is a meaningless Statistic as to why someone LEADS that category. Either UPDATE the overall Leaderboards (and remove all the dead, suspended accounts) or put it back the way it was! Makes ZERO sense!

  7. Are you afraid the comments will hurt your left leaning agenda?

    I have changed my home page because you dropped the comments on yours. I am now sending your advertisers that I have left your home page for the reason and they might want to stop advertising on your site. I haven't changed my email address yet, but if you don't bring back the comments I will change that as well. Is this because the comments show how left leaning your site is?

  11. Penalize Anonymous Post, No Points for Anonymous answer

    Anonymous posters wreak havoc on Y!A. Here's a way to minimize:
    1. Allow Anonymous post, but charge 10 to 20 points. Some Groups need Anon postings.
    2. But DO NOT allow Posts if they have 10 points or below,
    3. AND don't award points for Anonymous answers. Zero, zip, nada.

  13. Allow us to delete our questions after people have answered them.

    Currently, if someone has answered a question I have posted, I am unable to delete that question, even if it is a spam answer. This is unacceptable, and I've put up with it for far too long. if I've got nothing but garbage or troll answers, I will never give somebody best answer, anyway, so what's the point?

  16. Bring Back Comments for users answers. Get rid of the Anonymous Coward poster option.

    Comments are part and parcel of the Yahoo Answers experience.
    The ability to retort a posters comment makes everything more enjoyable.
    Anonymous Coward posts are usually Poes, Trolls or bigots. They are the ones doing damage to YA not the comment on comments section.
