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

So, you'all, niqqas, keep reporting LAN and Corvus Blackthorne for being a bully but he's still there? Lol.
Wendy Reynolds commented
Ban all reporter trolls by taking their reporting out of their hands!

LAN is probably one of Yahoo's staff; that's why you can't touch him; he's untouchable like politicians with diplomatic immunity; vaccines are poison; reject all vaccines.
Randy Orton commented
@Duck, yeah... That's what he does ... exactly that...
Duck Death commented
There's this user named "Shadowfire Lives" who reports everything he disagrees with, creates multiple accounts to get past blocks, harasses people he doesn't like, and tries to act like his behavior is "for a good cause", rather than just trying to be an unrepentant bully.

Thank you, 'Anon... commented · June 05, 2020 12:49'...in regards to 'Dorothy' (hailing from the English Midlands). Yes...it was around 2011 when I got on the wrong side of her also. Time was when if somebody on here obviously didn't like the cut of your jib - and the sharpness of your prose, they would gang up and ask for it to be removed with you ending getting 10 points deducted; Of course it was easy to appeal up until five or so years ago, but nowadays, especially on the UK site, it's become more vicious and insular, with the original punters who made it sweet to spend an hour or so in the evening far away - leaving it open to weirdos. As a result, I've become anonymous merely to not be stalked. As you say - the main terror in the 'year of fear' (that is) tends to be based on race - Covid-19 is a stormer...but the good old tabloids have decided to throw in the 'Ooh-er...the BAME lot are not doing as they're told. Again!' Which tends to get picked up eagerly by the Dorothys of this world - and others...who claim to have a 'growing business' but most of the morning (and early afternoon) never seem to be off Y!A CE UK - and that's before we get to the mid evening...after the soaps.
Does she ever call you 'Jez' or 'Arry' - or even more surreal...suspect you're either 'West Indian', or mixed-race?

Postings like this shouldn’t even get a second chance.

I agree with you, that user is vulgar

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.
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.

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?
