    Yahoo answers has become pretty flakey as of late.  Allowing porn and pedo spam as well as other vulgar cr@p.  It is clear that no one is minding the website and its just running on some automatic system.

    because many are not reporting them and many times when someone reports them, they seem to get away with it. even ones who cuss and rude seem to get away with it. some have tons of accounts and love to start with others

    Not enough users reporting violating posts, in short. Lack of moderation by Verizon Media/Yahoo is also a factor. Inability to easily reach out to anyone working for YA to report chronic abusers. It's a case of "when the cat's away...."

    Because Yahoo allows it. 

    Trolls actually create much of the message traffic here. 

    Yahoo must have realized, that suspending all the trolls here,  greatly *reduced* the message traffic. 

    If you don't have HIGH message traffic......you can't charge high advertisement rates, which is how Yahoo makes money off this  "free" service. 

    therefore, actually suspending and banning the MULTIPLE account obessed trolls...........actually HURTS them , in the long run. .....financially. 

    That is probably why they just gave up on moderation here.........because it's the TROLLS still keeping this site financially viable. 

    Sad fact of life.......but there it is.

    It must be because Yahoo is a joke pretty much. Also have you heard about this me-me it is called the trollface and it is basically a drawn picture of a grimy face with the text 'Problem?' under it.
