  2. Enforce TOS

    You have completely lost control of the Answers feature. There is no moderation and it's full of filth, lies, and ignorant behavior. If you can't control it, you should end it, because it is no longer a forum for the exchange of information.

  7. Yahoo just scuttled a primary motivator for posting to Yahoo Answers

    Someone, probably a new MBA who wears bow ties and suspenders, scuttled the "best answers" section on Answers. In doing so, the site lost a primary motivator for participation. I'm a level 7 member and have been a member for quite a long time. The first thing I check on sign-in is my new or no best answers. This guides me to the areas where I am most helpful and motivates me to continue adding answeres to help others. Someone has taken away the coach's half-time motivational pitch, and I'm much less inclined to "win one for the Gipper". While…

  8. 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?

  11. Give us a route to reinstate accounts from suspensions

    I was banned 20 years ago from Yahoo Answers. It's been so long ago, I don't even remember why I was banned. I have no idea of what I said to cause it. Answers back then was full of incredibly toxic people. I was probably one of them. We were teens just lashing out and used Answers as an escape. Of course, we all grow up and mature. I want it to give us an avenue of reinstatement, when we admit our mistakes and are forgiven.

  16. Bring back comments.

    Yahoo was my homepage until they suppressed reader comments. I thought it was the one site that allowed free speech (comments). Very disappointed with Yahoo. I now spend less than 1/5 of my news reading on Yahoo. Very disappointed.

  17. Remove Yahoo Answer Posts

    I made a yahoo answers question 10 years ago, when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I had issues in the past and sought after some answers on this website. I made a post that included some very personal information. If anyone wanted to look me up, they would find that yahoo answer post from 10 years ago and know that it is me. I tried reporting the post with new Yahoo accounts, but it keeps saying "something went wrong" and won't report the post. I want to be able to take down the post, but Yahoo is…

  18. When if ever will the comments portion of articles be restarted?

    No doubt some ideas and comments were out of bounds. But, simply a descending idea, different opinion or different take on a subject should not be offensive if there is truth to it. Both sides need to be brought out and discussed. The comments section allowed this to happen.

  19. PLEASE RETURN users comments, opinions 1st amendment rights to 'free speech!'

    This applies to Yahoo! Articles, Answers that our comments, opinions should have the 'RIGHT' to 'agree' or 'disagree' (especially politics) without any discrimination, segregation, profiling, prejudice or political bias! We notice these 'biased moderators' (who have the power to take users points) are under 'suspicion' of TOS 'points abuse' due to 'political bias' or more 'abusive behavior' against liberal or democrat users! Our 1st amendment rights should apply at 'ALL TIMES' & 'NOT' 'segregated policy' on 'tech giant' platforms! Our comments, opinions should 'NOT' be censored, prohibited or abridged if we are within the reasonable guidelines! Also our comments should…

  20. Porque parou a pontuação das melhores respostas?

    Acredito que a pontuação por melhores respostas era um estímulo a fazer perguntas ou respostas.
    Obrigado.
