    I agree. It's a ridiculous waste of time and effort to compose a question only to find yourself blocked.
    What I don't understand however is why some "Anonymous" person needs to block people. What is the rationale behind it? In the Politics section it only encourages Russian trolls and white supremacists to constantly post propaganda because they systematically block people who might oppose their views. Yahoo needs to look into this, pronto. This is an election year and things are getting very out of hand. The site is being taken over by very determined and very divisive entities.

    There is no good reason why Anonymous questions should allow blocking of answers. In the Politics section, the Anonymous people asking questions are posting disgusting propaganda and racist questions. Then they methodically block any and all people they can identify who might respond with decent, opposing answers. Russian trolls are having a field day. With an election year coming up, this must be stopped!

    We plan to allow the blocking of anonymous people in the future. Expect anonymous answering to go away, expect anonymous asking to stay.

    Anonymous askers should not be allowed to block people, period. In the Politics section, the Anonymous people asking questions are posting vitriolic propaganda and racist questions, then methodically block any and all people who might respond with decent, opposing answers. Russian trolls are having a field day. It is outrageous! With an election year coming up, this must be stopped.

    Anonymous asking in the Politics section only encourages racists and bigots to constantly post derogatory questions. Anonymous asking should be completely eliminated in the Politics section.

    Not a good suggestion. The propagandists, for instance, in the Politics section use the blocking feature to post racist, divisive statements and eliminate all opposing views. The comments allow blocked people to at least object. Since Yahoo doesn't properly monitor and trolls are constantly posting repetitive bigoted garbage, even after being reported, the comments permit people an opportunity to oppose the propaganda.

    Anonymous trolls in the Politics section are spreading racist propaganda and blocking individuals who tend to post liberal or moderate answers. It is getting worse. There is no reason for these individuals to be able to block. Yahoo is just encouraging bigotry and hostile foreign propaganda during an election period by allowing this. It is also very frustrating to compose a well-researched answer only to find that it can't be posted because of blocking by some Anonymous person.
