    Because they are Trolls its What Trolls do they like to cause Trouble and Delete Other people's Questions

    Make sure your Questions are not In any Violation of the Yahoo Answers Community Guidelines if you are sure you did not Break any Rules then

    Send in a Appeal for It

    To Appeal go here

    https://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?page=conta...

    Select Contact a Yahoo Specialist then Appeals then Follow the Instructions from there

    If you win the Appeal the Person who Reported you has Less of a Chance next time they go to Report you as they lose there Credibility

    You obviously do not understand how moderation on YA works. YA is run by server computers and computer programs. There ZERO Verizon employees reading questions before they are posted in over 1300 YA categories. Everyone, including YOU, is an UNPAID moderator. If one of your questions is reported enough times, that triggers a bunch of computer programs that remove tour question from the YA DISPLAY, but NOT from the Yahoo/Verizon digital data banks. It is also supposed to trigger either a report notice or violation notice email being sent to you so you can appeal, but that happens VERY sporadically for MORE than 2 YEARS since Verizon took over Yahoo. Technically you can still appeal through the Help pages, but you need the text of the reported question or answer to appeal. That text is in the email is in the emails you did NOT receive.

    As for who the trolls are, EVERYONE on

    YA is troll. You become a troll on YA in self defense, or you don't last for long on YA.

    • Why not just try to answer the question ask and not the same garbage over and over again.

    Violation questions and answers can be reported by anyone, especially obvious trolling questions like yours.

    If people are reporting your questions, they get taken down due to the reports.

    It has nothing to do with users "removing" them... I mean, if that was true, wouldn't everything be gone?

    See, I tend to use my brain but I will not force you to do anything you're not happy about.

    This site is community moderated and usually when five or six different members report a question, it will get deleted. Whether these members are all trolls depends on what you're asking.

    They cant do that. Only Yahoo can. Now a troll can report it but they cant remove it.
