    Posts are removed (and 10 pts lost) when enough users report them as violations (there is NO specific # of reports required to get a post removed, it varies). A user whose post has been removed may post again here and ask "Was this question/answer a violation" and include the exact text of the removed post (and the question being responded to, if posting about a removed answer), including any updates, URLs, or images associated with it, and the users here will tell them if it appears to be a violation or not. If not, they have 7 days to appeal to have it reinstated..


    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.

    Your questions keep violating the YA CG and the terms of the Verizon ToS contract. YA users keep reporting them and you lose?20 points every time the server computers remove your question from the YA display.
