Yahoo! Answers is a community-driven question-and-answer website or a knowledge market from Yahoo!, that allows users to both submit questions to be answered and answer questions asked by other users.
This site is infamous for several reasons.
Why It's Rotten
Regarding the Questions and Answers
- In fact, the user who asks the question can choose the "best" answer if they want to, which actually turns out to be the worst answer.
- Questions that appear to be lies that don't make any sense.
- The quality of both the questions and answers are becoming more ridiculous than ever. Just look at this!
- Answers that only "answer" the title of the question. Here are some examples.
- Pointless "answers" that are not related to the topic. Examples of these are answers than ask the question which is very ironic.
- There are questions (alongside with their descriptions) that seem to be offensive (either being racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.)
Regarding the Users
- Basically, SO MANY TROLLS.
- Spam bots. Such as making "This Site Might Help You" spam "answers".
- Some users are SJWs.
- Some users disrespect opinions.
- Copycats, copycats everywhere!
The Only Redeeming Quality
- There are some users who take their questions and answers seriously.
