Even for 1 minute..why is yahoo allowed to host users posting pictures of snuff, child porn and abuse?


If there is child porn online, isn’t that a police matter?

    The site is "Community Moderated" which means other users are expected to report violating content, and get it taken down. No one who works for Yahoo/Verizon is reviewing posts here as they hit the site. It IS a violation to post the content you mention, but unless enough users report it, it doesn't get removed (and some trolls will keep re-posting it regardless). 

    Report violations when you see them. If you feel you see something that should be reported to the police, then do so.


    Your question belongs in Yahoo Products>Yahoo Answers as it's currently in Yahoo Products>Yahoo Mail>Abuse and Spam and not applicable to this subcategory (and thus decreases your chances of getting many useful answers).

    Moving your question can be done by clicking Edit (pencil icon for mobile)>Edit category just beneath your question, then selecting the category that's appropriate for the topic.

    You're asking why don't they know what someone is posting and delete it before they've posted it?
