Did the mods abandon this website?

There are so many questions and answers on here that violate the rules, but stay up even when reported. Where are the mods?


I always report it and it does NOTHING.

    Yahoo’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines exist to foster an enjoyable and safe experience for the Yahoo community. Yahoo enforces these rules according to our policies, outlined below.

    How does Yahoo enforce its content moderation policies?

    We cannot be present for every interaction and upload, and we rely on our community of users to report abusive and potentially harmful content to our attention. When content that may violate our policies is flagged for our attention, our trained experts review the content and take the appropriate action.

    Sorry, there are no actual moderators. It is community "moderated", which means we gotta hit the report flag if something is amiss. Then, after about 50 people report it, the question will probably drop.

    First off Verizon does not run the Yahoo website. Verizon is the parent company but has nothing to do with the day to day activity of the Yahoo website. Yahoo never had mods on this site. It did at one time had a staff the help control the cheating that was going on here and suspended a number of accounts here over and over again. But that cost money and Yahoo stopped it around 2014 and now the trolls own the site more so than Verizon Media.

    Now no one knows the trust rating for users who report post here. Usually, it takes a number of reports to drop a post. But no one who use this site knows what that is.

    If you see something that violates the rules, report it. There are NO professional site moderators. That is what the little flags are for.

    It's been YEARS since there was a YA Team that checked in here at all or were easy to reach, if there was a serious issue. The site has always been community moderated, with the users being able to report violations. Since before the sale of Yahoo to Verizon, YA has been solely community moderated, outside of a few months in 2018 when we had an active and reachable YA Team again. They were disbanded a year ago, and since then we've been back to having to rely on user reports as the primary way to get posts removed or accounts suspended.

      reporting does not mean nothing, unless you already reported 20 posts of the same user that week
