    People Have Gotten Rude On There...

    I used to love Y!A, until I began receiving rude and degrading answers on there to all of my questions. I don't mean just trolls, I mean people who were serious. Now, I don't ever dare ask questions on there, although sometimes I go on and answer them. People seriously need to...

    The Way The Website Is Ran Is Corrupt

    I have been recently reported just for saying unflattering things about corporations. But the whole website has always been run on ignorant groupthink. Every category has some form of groupthink, usually with a very conservative bias, in the sense of a lust for strict rules...

    I mean, I don't like it. The people on there are rude, and you never get any real answers anyway. And I can't even go on there anymore because the stuff people write ****** me off.

    That Website Is Going Downhill

    It seems like the website is becoming more closer to failure, considering they are making more rules.  They delete anything that is not right winged.  The people there are mostly mindless conformists.  There is no diversity.  Unless you conform to an...

    Horrible Answers, Horrid People

    When I was younger Yahoo Answers was a place where you could almost get an honest answer on anything. But over the years people have begun to torment and bash, I hate that. For example, I had a question about having a baby at 19 because it was an issue I was facing and I was...

    Yahoo Answers Is Ruined By Bigots

    I joined Yahoo answers with high expectations. My mistake was to involve myself in the religion and spirituality section. I'm an atheist but my attitude to religion is pretty neutral. However it was only a matter of time before the fundies had me on their radar. First it was...

    They Are Extremely Ignorant About Politics

    Half the users on there worship the right wing, because of "Economic Freedom".  Then tell me, why is it under right wing policies, we have a crappy economy?  Because the only people who get the freedom are those with the most money.  The rest who dont have enough money are...

    The Website Is Too Collective

    There is no room for individual opinions.  Just this groupthink on who happens to be the dominating group on YA at the time.  Then they attack you if you dont conform to groupthink.  Its in every category.  One day, something you ask is just fine, and the next day, a certain...

    Yahoo Answers Is Worse Than Useless

    I mainly hate Yahoo answers because every time I am looking for a legitimate answer to a legitimate question, it's at the top of the results list, and if I have a catastrophic brain malfunction and actually look at it, it's full of smart -alecky troll answers -- or it's some half...

    Their Suggestion Board Is A Further Humiliation To Their Website
