Why are questions (and associated answers) suddenly just disappearing?

I'm referring to the global warming section. Level 7s ... can you move this back to that section if maliciously moved. Thanks!


I'm wondering if there is actually a glitch or if it is malicious or just a consequence of users flagging questions?

    In this section mainly newish anonymous or "activity private" users are being created to denigrate Dirac whoever he is because he/she has a different viewpoint to them, whoever they are.

    I saw a 2006 user account yesterday being described as one of his "sock accounts" by one of those accounts whatever that is, absolutely ludicrous is it not?

    The Yahoo Joker is the one who has the multiple accounts it is obvious to anyone, not the other way round as is being suggested by him/her/group/whatever.

    Seldom do I move a question to another section, when I do it goes to the new section but always remains in the original section also.

    If a question disappears altogether it must be because Yahoo is removing it.

    Now then, what would cause them to do that?

    Multiple accounts, chat, insulting other members of this forum, these are all against this sites rules.

    Members will report such violations to try and retain what is left of the integrity of this forum as they do not normally like to entertain themselves by reading such argumentative drivel on this site.

    The most thumbs down I ever got was eleven, lets see if I can beat that record, regards, Bob UK.

    Think I deserve a shot or two of Chivas Regal now, just getting dark in East Shropshire.

    How do I know that your question is not exactly where you intend it to be. I may post a question about Stephen Hawking in R&S rather than in physics because what he said may have spiritual implications. I may post a question about Galileo in Global Warming rather than in History as a statement about how the Republicans are treating scientists today.

    If your question was moved by a malicious user,I suggest moving it back yourself.

    And, you ask a question about Yahoo Answers under Global Warming rather than Yahoo Answers.

    It annoys me and others that we can’t get good-paying jobs on Yahoo to interfere with Qs that challenge the Corporate view.

    I have journalist friends that actually have jobs like this, run from the PR departments of Corporations and lobbying agencies.

    Nice work if you can get it.

    Is anyone else starting to think that Dirac has this elaborate and bizarre network of sock accounts?

    Anybody else notice this? It's already been established that Dirac has a CRAPLOAD of sock accounts. There is however, something more. They all have their superficial personnas, but they also have this deeper and common thread. There are similar techniques and themes.

    If you read between the lines, then you can detect it. There are certain words and phrases. They all talk about "science" and how the "deniers" are just so ignorant.

    I just noticed that ANOTHER one of Dirac's troll accounts (Mister X) was lamenting that a "denier" wouldn't not debate him. BUT, Mister X was not even interacting with the "denier" at all. It was Dirac interacting with the "denier." Now why did Mister X put himself in the place of Dirac? Is he Dirac?

    You also have these Jekyll & Hyde personalities. The insulting Cowboy is the Hyde to Dirac's stoic and logical Jekyll.

    I had a question Dirac kept suppressing from visibility with his sock accounts. I keep bringing it back, but it disappears every time it's brought back. Dozen of times in 2 weeks. Could Dirac have 100+ sock accounts?

    You see questions from Dirac & Company moved, but then those questions are returned to Global Warming immediately or almost immediately.

    Yahoo Global Warming is a virtual ghost town, but Dirac is on here all day.

    You see all these (and other) patterns, & then you start thinking more about probability (versus possiblity) of Dirac engaging in this bizarre trolling.

    HOW MANY accounts can Dirac possibly have?

    Boo hoo! LMAO at the paid trolls!

    Legit questions from JimZ, Sagebrush, SolarWind, and Daro immediately get moved to Abuse & Spam, but troll questions like this mysteriously remain. What a coincidence!

    Edit: More lulz. I'm sitting here refreshing my page. I just watched my thumbs up go from 1 to 8 in 3 minutes. Dirac is doing it to try & make it look like I'm thumbing myself up!

    Call me Colombo but it seems to have happened shortly following the arrival of Bond Villain wannabee: the Yahoo Joker, the other day someone (presumably him) spent all day moving my question back and forth to a unsuitable category, soon as i moved it, it was moved back yet he claims to have a job.

    I do flag Q&A that is purely vulgar or ones that brag about moving questions, but having just a single level 3 account I doubt that I have much influence. I can't move anybody else's question, although I do have to move my questions back to GW fairly often, because The Yahoo Joker moves them constantly (I'm not guessing about that, he has admitted it).

    His named account is NOT level 7, which means that he must have a second account that's level 7. I'm quite certain that all the variations on "Dirac" are his also--he is obsessed with me. He is apparently threatened because I give science-based answers and call out people when they are lying.

    I'm fairly certain that there are at least 3 people here that run multiple accounts (two have admitted to it) and spend a lot of time moving questions around, it's very annoying. Since I am blocked by "Anonymous" (Cyclops?) and all of The Yahoo Joker's variations, it can be tough to track down where some of the interesting questions have been moved to.

    This forum has become even more annoying and dysfunctional than it was previously, which is actually saying a lot.

    As always, I don't block anyone, my Q&A are open, and people are even welcome to email me if they like.

    It seems to me that YA is having some issues and it's more than just GW but that seems to be worse IMO. I don't know if they are upgrading (just kidding) or what.

Still have questions? Get answers by asking now.
