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

    Here is the latest example of what anonymous gets YA participants:

    Anonymous
    25 mins ago
    I believe you're a stupid f*ck who voted for someone who said "I did NOT lie I merely short circuited" - while simultaneously having the audacity to point the finger
    I believe you're a stupid f*ck whose existence is so worthless that your conclusions and views rely solely on partisanship and it should then be no surprise that you have zero impartiality, no truth, and no integrity about your stupid existence.
    I believe you serve as a great example as to why democrat moms fight for the right to abort their own.

    Can we expedite this solution? Still being blocked by trolls I can not block back. Reconsider anonymous asking, still distracts from the site.

    Another instance today, 2/1/20, where anonymous poster answers my question with insults but has me blocked! Ho much longer do we have to wait for this to get fixed?

    Anonymous stalkers continue to harm the site. Here is a post one of my questions received, anonymously, of course:

    Do you want to know why people hate worthless piece of sh*t like you?

    It's because you think deeming a conclusion "worst president in history" is the same as proving any of it. It's not.

    See if some failed abortion like you could even comprehend anything beyond a colorful cereal box or your welfare/EBT card, you just might be able to realize that it's about details.

    For example, we have the lowest unemployment rate in all of American history.
    Excellent GDP growth beyond projections
    No more "pay for healthcare otherwise we're going to fine you if you can't afford to"

    THAT to you is apparently the worst president in history......when the actual truth is that you're a scum sucking parasitic liberal who hates that these record breaking achievements are happening on Trump's watch instead of a liberal's.....which makes you people look like idiots in comparison, and it does.

    So shut the f*ck up. Because you are so far out of your league

    This situation is intolerable. Please get this fix done,

    Please speed this up. Anonymous trolls are ruining the site.

    Appreciate the changes; but, can we speed up the implementation of this fix. One anonymous user continues to answer his own questions and does not ask questions, he simply pushes his extremist views.

    The problem with the anonymous setting is our inability to block them! I fave an anonymous stalker who likes to call me names an post unrelated insults. I have reported him and requested YA to block him for me- all to no avail. Get rid of anonymous or allow the block.

    Good suggestion, I would love to disallow anonymous posts to my questions. I have an anonymous stalker, I have asked YA to block him, to no avail.

    If I could filter out all anonymous answered my stalker would have to reveal himself and I could block him.

    This is a great idea, please implement.

    The anonymous feature is being abused. I have reported an anoystalker, and pleaded with YA admin to block him, to no avail. Why is his ability to hide and harass more important than my peaceful use of YA?

    If YA has concluded that an anonymous feature is warranted at least allow offended users to block their comments.

    Wasted another several minutes on an anonymous question only to find out I’m blocked! When will you fix this?

    I do not understand YA's stubborn refusal to eliminate the anonymous feature. What don’t users understand about anonymous?

    Eliminate blocking and ban abusers.

    This is a good idea. Askers should use the “update” function, not the answer function on their own questions. I suppose there is a use case where askers find the answer to their own questions and want to share it. I’ll have to do more research on this matter.

    Answering your own question is frequently used in connection with the anonymous feature and anonymous blocking. In conjunction, they are a trolls paradise.

    YA won’t accept my votes for this suggestion. Removing the anonymous feature from YA is imperative. It is a mechanism where trolls insults participants. What is taking so long fixing this?

    Eliminate the anonymous feature will allow mt to block the trolls that destroy YA.

    Would not take my votes for this idea. Agree 100%. The anonymous feature should be eliminated, but if you refuse, at least block them from my participation.

    Po Boy commented  · 

    100% agree. One of your Anonymous trolls just called me names at one of my questions. My response is blocked. How hard would it be to cancel blocking until you get it fixed?

    The only purpose for the anonymous feature is to troll, insult and harass. And to answer your own question and try to hide. Time for it to go.

    Please, remove this feature. Although, I do know where to find my questions: the Pets Section.

    Ban the stalkers and abusers. The block option is beyond frustrating.

    I understand the motivation for anonymous, but clearly the cure is worse than the disease. If a YA participant abuses the site, remove him. Anonymous is being gamed by stalkers and those afraid of interaction.

    Agreed. We’re working on a new moderation system, including appeals.

    The “reporting” system is broken, virtually all my deleted questions have been reported for political reasons. Recently, I had a question removed and I was not informed. YA is going to have to apply some intelligence to this, if you want to regain relevance.

    The reporting system is broken. For some reason YA can’t discern between political disagreement and actual violations. Fix this!

    The reporting process is broken. I get it that a user sourced reporting process is cheaper; but, the abuse on this site is preposterous. So many trolls, why give them power?

    The “reporting” system is broken. Harassment of users is rampant and obvious. Fix it or YA will become for trolls only.

    Yahoo seems to make the assumption that a report is valid unless proven false; it should be reversed, reports should be seen as suggestions until validated. In the Politics section “reports” are frequently harassment, and little more.
