How do I delete my Yahoo answers account?

Is there an option to delete just my Yahoo answers account? But keep my existing Yahoo account?

    No, because you do NOT HAVE a separate Yahoo Answers account. That is WHY you have to log into an email account to participate on YA. If your email account is deactivated, suspended (blocked from participating on on YA), or really deleted, your YA content remains in Verizon's/Yahoo's digital data banks in perpetuity. Verizon/Yahoo OWNS your YA content

    You do NOT HAVE a separate YA account. It takes 90 to 120 days to deactivate a Yahoo email account. If you login, you reactivate it.

    Verizon/Yahoo did NOT force you to sign up with YA.

    There is no option to only delete your Yahoo Answers account.  Just stop using it.

    Should you delete your Yahoo account, your questions & answers would remain on the site, available for browsing and viewing.  They will not be deleted.

    Not possible. When you delete your account you delete everything including your email. This is how to close your account: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2044.html

    There is no such thing as a Yahoo Answers account, your YA! account IS your Yahoo account, it's the same thing
