A useful novelty created by Yahoo that was designed for those who are curious about the things in this world but are too afraid to ask. Also, this allows people to share their knowledge with the rest of the world. Unfortunately, after December 19, 2006, the day the message boards died, trolls now need a new home, so it looks like Yahoo Answers are about to be hijacked by ignorant trolls.
Typical questions found on Yahoo Answers BEFORE Dec 19, 2006:
How do I cook Korean food?
What is the best way to speak French fluently?
Who will win the Super Bowl?
Typical questions found on Yahoo Answers AFTER Dec 19, 2006:
Which website has the best gay asian porn?
Why do negro people smell like gorilla feces?
If I look at me sister and I get an erection, will I go to hell?
1) The absolute best fucking place to troll; at home, at work, and especially during classes that allow unmonitored internet access.
2) Home of some of the most idiotic, ignorant people on the face of the earth. Almost everyone on the site will believe just about anything you post.
3) The hardest place NOT to be suspended from.
4) A great place to get some of the worst information on the web. Most of the people have nothing else better to do and just answer for points.
5) Home of the most bitchy pregnant women that you will ever come in contact with.
Troll #1: I'm getting my sixth abortion in ten years -- will you say a prayer for me?
Troll #2: Help! My 11 year old son just got his period?!?
Brainwashed religious nut #1: I had a dream that I killed Mariah Carrey. Will God send me to hell?
Guy: What do you like to do for fun?
Girl: I spend all my time on yahoo answers. It's even more fun than myspace.
Guy: Don't you have anything better to do?
Girl: Actually, I don't.
A shitty, fucked up website that everyone should complain to other internet corporations (such as Google or MSN) because Yahoo Answers deactivates entire Yahoo accounts based on the petty and foolish reports from other users they receive when using Yahoo Answers. There are a number of shitheads on Yahoo Answers that report people for reasons such as "use of curse words", "disagreed with the question!", "wasn't enough of a question! Too much of a rant!" Basically anyone who decides to report others on the website fits into a category of a shitheaded rat and when you make complaints out about it Yahoo Answers always rejects them because their too lazy to really look into the situation to find out how petty it actually is and just agrees with their silly reporters, making the people who run Yahoo Answers just as fucked up
2. Any completely messed up website that everyone should immediately make out a complaint about to another corporation and requests other corporations to create a replacement competitor to it
After using Yahoo Answers for my first time today, my Yahoo account I've had for fifteen years was deleted. I lost contact with the woman of my dreams and had no way of contacting a new job I had been hired to.
I'm going to go swarm Google, MSN, AOL, Askjeeves, etc., and every other internet search engine with a bunch of complaints about Yahoo and Yahoo Answers for the crap I received from them, deleting my account because a bunch of animal loving extremist thought I was being out of line when I spoke of how I put my dog in her crate whenever she does something wrong.
When Yahoo Answers deleted my brother's account WITHOUT WARNING after some stupid violation notices for use of the word "vagina" and "penis" in one of his questions and refused to reactivate it after e-mailing back and forth 30 or 40 times, I personally made out a complaint to Google to get rid of that shit and create something better.
I ended up getting an account with a different network once I found out Yahoo perpetuates the use of nonsense reporting by unwarranted deactivation of accounts, deletion of questions and answers and refusal to behave logically and reactivate them once they receive complaints about it.
Yahoo Answers should just be like Youtube and allow EVERYONE to vote a "thumbs down" or "thumbs up" for an answer, without allowing them to behave like children and run to the owners like children and tattle-tale because it's childish.
The idiots in charge of Yahoo Answers don't kn...
also known as Y!A. a place where you can waste the most amount of time and have the fun doing it. it is a good source of both information and entertainment. it is mostly inhabited by teen age girls and trolls. a good place to chat about nothing and learn more stuff that you didn't really need to know.
BEWARE! IT IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION.
dude, i'm bored.. what should i do?
go on Y!A and answer some quetsions.
(Y!A means yahoo answers)
A website with a userbase comprised largely of some of the dumbest and laziest retards ever to walk the planet. Most are people who can somehow figure out how to use Y!A to post questions, but can't figure out even the most basic aspects of a search engine. Others want you to do their homework for them. Still more ask questions about policies of certain companies that could've been solved faster if they'd just gone to said website or picked up a phone. Many are largely unintelligible with spelling, punctuation, and grammar that would make an English professor weep. There are angsty teens, clueless middle-aged people, and senile old people. While some people ask specific and smart questions, the vast majority of posts are asked by people who can't even figure out how to figure something out themselves. The same applies to answers. Some are insightful and useful, but most are just idiocy.
Essentially, it's a site where retards can ask retarded questions and get answers from other retards. It's a horrifying look into what happens when technology puts evolution in reverse and allows people who would have been culled from the herd long ago to survive and procreate. If ever you want to see the abysmal, stygian depths of human stupidity, look no further than Yahoo Answers.
Idiot? That guy is Yahoo Answers-grade stupid!
A website by Yahoo. People from all over the world who have an account can ask and answer questions. They can be as ridiculous as "im i pregnant"? or "what language do they speck in china?". It has become quite popular which is probably because they give a points system.
Yahoo! Answers is actually a good site considering the majority of questions asked are pointless. Yes I have an account!
Yahoo's relatively new website for asking and answering questions about whatever you like, within some limitations.
This site is actually kind of addictive if you get into it. You have to be careful to distinguish between good and bad answers though, for example by googling or looking at the answerers ratings.
This website has grown a lot since it first started. There are hundreds of subsections, everything from Lebanon to Horoscopes(I still don't get why people are into that stuff), to Computers and Polls.
Sometimes on Yahoo Answers you see really provocative and interesting questions, but you also sometimes see some really boring or childish questions sometimes too. But overall it's an interesting site and you can also search through the millions of already-asked questions.
