Verizon now owns YA AND Yahoo since jun e. Yahoo is now A Verizon AOL SUBSIDIARY.
ALL of the Yahoo staff has probably been laid off and longer exist. The Yahoo Answers teams were laid off in 2014. the U.k. Answers teams said goodbye on the OLD suggestion board. They are
NOT deleting or reporting YA question answers and comments.. Computer programs are deleting reported questions, answers comments from the YA display, BUT NOT from Yahoo's or Verizon's digital data-banks. That is why why IR you appeal and you win the appeal, the question or answer can be restored back to the YA display right back to the place it was deleted from in the YA display, but it has moved way down the question que because more recent questions are added to the top of the questions que in every category and subcategory of the "answers' questions.
YA is run by servers (computers) and computer programs, NOT laid off answers teams or Yahoo employees or Verizon employees.

Most people who cheat know they're cheating—they’ve created multiple accounts to gain points in various ways, or negatively target other members. However, many people don’t understand that “point-gaming” and "placeholding" are also considered cheating.
What is point-gaming or place-holding?
Posting questions that offer points for any reason other than for the best answer. For example, “Free points for the first person to post an answer?” or “Make me laugh and get 10 points?”
It's OK to say you'll give 10 points to the person with the best answer if coupled with a legitimate question.
Posting “Star my question?” without including a legitimate question.

Those of you who reliably identify and report questions and answers will have more influence than others.
