Yahoo! Answers Is 100% BIAS & Geared For Hate Speech!
I recently discovered Yahoo Answers I have been using it for about 2 weeks now. It seemed like a great way to help people out. The concept and the true idea are very, very far off from each other. So far in 2 weeks, I have received 10 Violations Notices. Which sounds horrible, until you understand how Yahoo is running this so-called Help Forum. If you post a question that a person working at Yahoo doesn't personally like, they will delete it and you will get a Violations Notices for it. If you post a comment and Yahoo And/Or another user doesn't like it, you will get a Violations Notice. I just received 2 more notices for read this very carefully, (I POSTED LINKS TO SOFTWARE DRIVERS THAT THE USERS WAS ASKING A QUESTION ABOUT). A guy came in and was having a problem with his LG phone. His problem was a software driver issue, so I posted a link to LG's software home page. I didn't post a link to a site selling anything. I posted a link to the content this guy was having trouble finding. And Yahoo DELETED MY LINK AND GAVE ME A VIOLATION NOTICE!
The other Violations Notice, same story. A different gay was having a problem with his cell phone, so this time I posted a link to both the drivers and to an FAQ on a forum that would help with the install. So for my trouble, VIOLATION NOTICE!
Now this has been going on almost since day 1. I have seen people posting question asking how to steal. How to counterfeit. How to clone cell phones. All types of illegal criminals, and Yahoo DOESN'T DELETE THOSE LINKS! But if a guy asks a bigot question bashing gay marriage and I make a comment that "Conservative is just another word for Ignorant", he can report me and I will get into trouble "Yeah, that was my first Violations Notice! The guy's hatred-based question is not deleted, but my comment trying to defend someone is, because the guy didn't like my comment." This is how Yahoo Answers works. It is 100% Bias. And since the Yahoo Employees working that day didn't mind an ignorant question like that, the guy was clear to rant about anything. And I, along with everyone else who didn't agree received a Violations Notice. So after seeing the questions that stayed up, I posted one about "Is Anyone Else Sick OF Yahoo ToolBar Being Included In Everything Without Our Knowledge?" And guess what happen? VIOLATION NOTICE!
So unless your asking a question or making a comment that the Yahoo staff Personally approves of, your in risk of having your account closed down. And if your not a Republican Bigot, then your going to have your posts and comments deleted by other users, and Yahoo will hunt you down like some kind of blind hitman and dish out unreasonable amounts of Bias punishment!
Read through "Yahoo! Answers Suggestion Board". If you want to see an abuse in power by Yahoo to delete what they don't like, then try to sweep it under the rug as quickly as possible, your going to have hours of fun to read!
I'm done trying to help. I can't compete against a system that rewards questions by ignorant people and punishes people that truly try to help. And since they never bothered to respond to my pleases for email, but just decided to block my emails altogether, I have nothing more I can do but post my complaints so everyone else who has been going through these problems can do the same.
UPDATE: Since I started posting these complaint on different sites, 95% of the people have offered helpful advice and understand my frustration. There is some people that live in this world of complete ignorance. They think "I" am 100% Wrong and Yahoo was 100% Right. One of the very first questions I saw on Yahoo Answers had a title like "Why is nature hurting us?" When I clicked on the link, the guy was saying God was killing us all because "FAG's" were getting married. This is NOT A VALID QUESTION, but Yahoo allowed hundreds of these to be posted every single day. When I told the guy something to the effect "Your making God out to be some kind of cold blooded murder. Willing to kill without regret because of people He/She/It created. God is not like that!" That comment was somehow worse then what bigots were posting about Gay's being killed and blah blah blah! My comment was tough, but I was making a valid point to a pointless question. So I received a Violation Notice and my comment was removed. Some of my other comments were pointless and it didn't matter if they were removed. But when someone can post a question about death and murder. About crime and torture And I would come to the defense of the people these bigots were ranting about, I become the bad guy. The one Violation Notice that set me over the edge. Was yet another Bible-Based question where someone was using the Bible as a reason to hate someone. So I told this person "I doubt God is going to let you into Heaven for tormenting a homosexual child so much that they kill themselves because you made them feel like they were worthless. A powerful comment on my part, because this woman truly thought making a gay teen feel bad about posting a question about being Gay on the site would get her into Heaven. So I yet again got into trouble and her comment stayed and mine went bye bye. So here is how Yahoo Answers works.
1. If your Gay, and you post a question asking for help, your going to be bashed by the religious fanatics making you feel horrible.2. If you post a question about a politician, then any comment you make Pro or Con, will lead to someone reporting you and you will get a Violation Notice. 3. No matter what you post, on any topic, dealing with any subject, prepare to hear Christian propaganda. If you ask "Why is my fingernail turning black?" Someone will post "Jesus loves you and his plan is to make your fingernail black."
So see it doesn't matter. I started off spending 4 hours a night before going to bed helping people. Then I found myself defending others more and more. Then I found myself getting Violation Notice and having posts removed. After awhile, any topic I posted, Yahoo within hours would complain about something. I wasn't a perfect user, because I did get caught up in the whole "HATE" game, which is 75% of Yahoo Answers. But I was at least trying to help people. I was defending others who I felt needed to be defended, regardless of what type of person they were. But in the end, because I'm not religious and I'm not a Republican, I was driven away from that site and everything dealing with Yahoo. So if you think "I" am the one at fault. That out of 1 person posting a horribly mean question against someone born different. 20 other user posting comments. 10 of those comments being bigot, hatred. An ME trying to defend that one person. If you think I should be the one to take the fall, then you live in such a closed off world Grow up, Read some books, volunteer your time, then come back and tell me I'm the bad guy for trying to protect those who are being judged and hated for being Gay, Black, Hispanic, Atheist, ect. Hating someone, even when your using your faith as a reason, still makes you a bigot. And Yahoo shouldn't even allow anything like that to be posted.
