    It's shutting down f/ too many people abusing it, too few people reporting the violations and hiring monitors is not cost effective. The self-regulating experiment failed. Recess is over ... get off the monkey bars and back to acting responsibly. When YA cut off the abuse in comments, people still abused the forum w/ their q+a. Words matter/have consequences.

    Deal with the troll before it's too late. Every question in th.answers.yahoo.com has tons of blank answers (using space bar); it could have been posted by someone like Shadowfire to gain points for his troll accounts. In his questions and answers he always refers to Christian Lord God as “lord” / “god”; basically, when using proper grammar throughout his hateful blasphemous speech, he deliberately writes these two words from lower case letter. Jewish user Shadowfire (who spams this link “deathmetal.org/news/christ-sodomized” and has been on Yahoo Answers since the beginning and could possibly be the infamous homosexual flying antichrist from the tribe of Dan) from Portland [or so he claims because he could’ve been born in Russia in Valday (Russian: Валда́й) to a 12th generation Jewish prostitute who pretends to be a virgin)] has many trolls accounts on Yahoo Answers. These could be his accounts: Blackthorne1979, James Blackthorne, ✟ summer of night omega crow † ⚔, Saint James Tiberius Troll, Lord Shadowfire, Carter Berg, Madam Sin Bin, Fireball, Aravah, Miguel, ThatToiletguy, Tublet Huglet, Tut Uncommon: 3peat Offender, Cult Free, Reynaldo Weeks, Juli, Petri Lindroos, Uncle Fester, Lord Ninigi, Knightwulf, Nonplussed, Nightwulf, lyconpolis (lycon = wolf), Derick Fields, Toilet John, Hitler Was Right About The Jews, Master Debator, Magistra, Desiree, D-girl, Firecock, Yahoo User, Corvus Blackthorne, Patrick McCluskey,  Lord Aizen, Torchbug, Arni, r.wolfpaw, No Bozos, Fuzzface McGee, First Dragon, L.E. Gant, Fullofpoop, Shadowfire the Sarcastic, Pope of Atheist God, Jimson C. Raskin,  

    A yellow face with simple open eyes showing clenched teeth,

    El Nerdo Loco, megalomaniac, Corvia Blackthorne, Shadowfire Lives, Shadowfire Lives bytches, The Chick that wears Doc Martens, Homo, Wotan 8, Wotan (who keeps posting “satanisgod.org”), Heidi Ho, Clo Bird, Angels with Silver Wings, Orange I'lluminaughty, Christian Sinner, Gandalf the black, The Lord Hummungus, Mismatched Tube Socks, Pearl, Partysnax the Dragon, etc. and any other anonymous accounts. With one his accounts Fireball, he pretends to be a Methodist old lady who posts short-hand slang TIRH (this is religion here). He reports all answers and questions that he doesn't like just so that his questions stay on top in the Religion and Spirituality section. He trolls in other categories too. It gives Christians a bad name (just because of this troll's sock puppet account). His Toilet John account keeps posting questions where Jesus was sodomized by Roman soldiers. Remember the prophecy where it says that the antichrist will have personal hatred towards the real Jesus Christ. That’s why Shadowfire keeps posting thousands of similar questions along the line: “Did Romans sodomize Jesus?” or “Was Jesus anally violated during the crucifixion?” or "How many liters of cûm did Jesus swallow before being hanged on the cross to die?" or "Did Jesus take a big dick up the butt beforr dying?" or "Did Roman buttfck Jesus before crucifying him?" or “Did Romans buttrape Jesus?” or “Did Jesus spend his final hours feasting on Roman feces, sucking Roman cocks, and juggling one erect dick after another up his butt?

    “ or “Is it true the Romans relentlessly sodomized Jesus, came all over his face, shat in his throat, pissed in his anus, & left him dripping wet?

    “. He asks multiple idiotic mundane questions like “Is Hinduism true?”, “What makes a girl harden?” [like he enjoyed killing little girls], etc. and answers them with his sock puppet accounts just to gain points. Some questions you can see that he answered with like five or seven accounts (especially the ones about himself that he reports right away). With his Reynaldo Weeks account he boasts that he was the reason why their accounts were suspended. With his Magistra account he threatens people with clowns and CIA assassins. Shadowfire mocks Christians with his sock puppet account Fireball in the Religion and Spirituality section by answering very destructively and adding "TIRH here" or reported (anonymously) or “fck you nigers”. He gives Christians a bad name because he promotes sins like sodomy, fornication, ecumenism, astrology (horoscopes), etc. He should be executed and burned at the stake for blasphemy. He spreads rapture heresy, reincarnation heresy, ecumenism heresy, etc. and many more subtle heresies. Antichrist will ride on a donkey into the 3rd Temple. Stop him before it’s too late. Antichrist is gay flying wizard who was born from a prostitute and who will ride on a donkey into the 3rd Temple. Antichrist's mother is a 12th generation prostitute (according to saint Lavrentiy of Chernigov). According to researcher Grigoriy Klimov, prostitutes = lesbians = witches; so, antichrist's mother is a witch, a lesbian, and a prostitute. Hide your kids, hide your wife ‘cuz de evil antichrist is flying thru town; take your glocks out and shoot dat son of a bytch down! Again, he’s an s-o-b ‘cuz his mother is a prostitute to Jews and Hindus. Funny thing is that she pretends to be a virgin. Don’t be deceived by this skumbag and his fake miracles trying to emulate Christ’s miracles! If wrongfully accused, forgive me; state under your account that you are not Corvus Blackthorne then. Shadowfire claims to be extraterrestrial raven when demons pretend to be extraterrestrials. I’m paranoid and think that all Yahoo accounts that talk about ravens are about him. Please, help me; I beg you. Using user Miguel, he’s teaching people how to summon demons. Dirty, very dirty! Shadowfire is a true dirtbag; do something to stop him now; he’s only one user and he’s doing the harm like it’s hundreds of users.

    Source(s): How many kids were killed when pregnant women were fighting? A lot probably. That's why women's fighting should be banned. 😢😭 Not to mention that unbaptized kids go to hell. To rescue them from hell, pray schema-nun Antonia's prayer; forgive me.

    Like any other company. if they are not making money, it's pointless keeping it open. You can beat a dead horse as much as you want, but it doesn't come back to life. and for that reason, you just have to let go. take care guys.

    There was the Yahoo Answerer who had the screenname "Tinkerbell Eats Yahoo". So Tinkerbell must have eaten Yahoo Answers.

    it probably isn't making any money for them and the site is so filled with crap that it's not worth paying for moderation anymore

    This makes me very sad. I grew up using Yahoo Answers. I am probably one of the youngest people on here, and I still love it. I am such an old school. I love Yahoo Answers! I really hope they don't shut it down as to why I am not sure.

    we're going backwards not forwards by banning this.

    same with the chatrooms over a decade ago.

    eventually the internet will get policed like never before, it will eventually get 'owned' by some sinister entity like the illuminati or w/e.

    Censoring/Deleting all non-liberal posts is costing them too much money.
