Yahoo discussion!... what is wrong with that site?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Fri Aug 26, 2011 12:21 pm

And why do people stay?
Seriously... Many are complaining about the unfair reporting, some are saying Yahoo has filtered even more words and phrases which causes even more violations and many say they don't like it anymore. So... why do so many stay? Some say for friends, but why not all just leave and go elsewhere? Is it possible some LIKE all the problems and it gives them a reason to be upset? Does a Utopia Yahoo seem like a bad thing... too boring and mundane?
I am truly trying to understand since it seems Yahoo is only getting worse with spam, reporting, awful answers and multiple accounts.
Any thoughts?

I made my decision about that site (if you mean "Answers")
a long time ago.
Yapoo ruined it when it initiated customer/user-policing.
My solution is to not go there. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hello Ja'aj!! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It seems to be even worse! Kind of like back to what it was when I lost my level seven account. Reporting is really bad! Appeals aren't being responded to and many are leaving or talking about leaving.
I am one of the idiots who goes back because of friends, but wonder what makes anyone stay, if it's not for the friends and why the friends stay no matter what.
I don't want to deal with all the crap there anymore. You can't even ask about the suggestion board without a violation for it.

Hi, Bree!!!

"Worse" [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] ?!? "Just as bad" was enough. *gag* [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have learned that friends will stay in contact. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
People I was friendly with on Y!A will (I hope) be glad to
see me if I go back. If not; out of sight - out of mind. };>

Ja'aj... It's the same crap, another day.. and more of it.

you are right about friends. If they don't keep in touch off that site, it's not a real friendship anyway. (((HUG)))

(((((Bree,)))))
(Back atcha!)
Yes - they're mostly all really nice - (the ones I know anyway)
but some are really truly friends! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] - and some are Y!A buddies
and contacts.
The brats (of all ages) on there are out of control.
I gave up and threw in the towel when I learned that any!
(A N Y) "report" will bring down a question or an answer.

THEN... if the user cares - they can "petition" for its reinstatement.
Eyewash. Also bullsquash. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Not gonna happen.
I'm not going to:
A.) work for Yapoo for free
B.) Put up with that kind of treatment
C.) Associate with a bunch of thugs allowed to run wild.

I think you "hit the nail on the head" when you said something about the BRATS being out of control. Too many kids on that site and too much squabbling, tattle-telling on each other and baiting people. They apparently take great joy in handing-out violation notices for the least little thing (deserving, or not). The "appeals process" is just a big ole load of B.S. - because it is NOT a democracy over there - it's a Ya-Nazi dictatorship! I was having such fun back when they had the 360 page where you could customize your own little page, and keep all your worthwhile contacts in one place. But, of course, they did away with that. The Answers part of it was fun, too. You know me, I like to joke-around ... and that gets you into plenty of trouble with the Yapoo crowd. They have NO sense of humor or fun. I ran across some very nice people there, who have remained in contact and are always a welcome addition to my day. Most of them are all HERE now, and I'm very glad for that. I finally got fed-up with that site, and have now pretty-much abandoned it. And ya know what? -- I don't miss it. Thanks to Breezey, there's a new place to play ... where I have NEVER (at least, not yet) giggle gotten a violation notice, and everyone seems to have a great sense of humor, as well as a caring attitude. As for Yahoo - I take the attitude that it is THEIR loss when quality people finally decide they've had enough and go elsewhere. Well! - The rabbit is extremely chatty today, isn't he? LOL

FYI - IMO - [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] -
Y!A's stoopid!, ill-defined "rule" against "chatting" is crap!
Sneaky,
I bet you got zapped! for "chatting", right?
The QUESTION! was chat! (-according to Yapoo's definition.)
Was it reported ?
I ESPECIALLY! think that on P&S the stupid [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] "chat rule"
should be suspended.

Bunny! Hi, Bun-eeee!!
GO BUNNY~! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] CHAT your little heart out!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Also, I agree with every (big and) little thing you said!
(And more... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])
The last **!$%!**@** straw was when yapoo decided to
make being a "Trusted Reporter" a desireable thing.
Bull.
P&S is the reason yapoo gets the publicity and the $$ ADs.
No way am I going to be part of a Nazi setup.
So there. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Bree,
A QUESTION about the SUGGESTION BOARD
(aka Home Of The Y!A TROLLS) got a VN?!?
Of course... they should be ASHAMED!! of that sewer!
Nevertheless - is is yapoo's "suggestion board" (?)
OR... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] did you ask "what in the hell! is WRONG with it?" [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Cuz no one has the time! (let alone the nerve) to answer that one! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The question was... how often do you visit the Yahoo Suggestion forum?

Many didn't even know there was one!

Also got reported for asking...
"Would you mind waiting three months for Yahoo to approve or deny your appeals?"

Both were reported at the same time, along with one asking if people thought some wanted Yahoo all for themselves. lol Now, I know that one could be chatting, but the first two were not violations.

Bree, [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I don't wonder that they didn't know there WAS one!
Yapoo HIDES! IT - very well.
'ODD' you say? (Okay, maybe that was me.)
If yapoo doesn't WANT "suggestions" WHY have
the [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] "board"?

As for the VNs - it is a FACT! (they SAY so!) that any!
Q or A can be brought down with a single "report".
THEN... the violated (I MEAN THAT!) can appeal! it.
That is PURE-D BULL. - IMO, of course... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Also, I don'tg think ANY of them are "chat" -
(the be-all and end-all Catch 22)
It's a POLL.

Oh, those people hand-out violations right and left over there. I got violation notices for chatting, for not answering the question, for you-name-it ... and I really felt MOST (if not all) were unfounded. AND - if you give them any guff (AKA: use that appeal BS) ... Then, they go back and find answers you gave YEARS AGO, and violate THEM! I finally got fed-up with all their small-minded, petty nonsense. Enough, is ENOUGH! They think they're the only place a bunny can go to play and have a good time ??? ... WRONG! dancing bunny

Okay! I'm really getting fed up! Just in one hour, people have posted about others lives and asking if they "qualify" to get into heaven... people are posting links for others to see members and block...people are posting rude and mean answers and a lot more! That site really needs a cleanup crew!

I honestly think the people have lost sight of what Yahoo was supposed to be for. I feel like I'm in a never ending soap opera when I am there. People blocking others, people judging others, people fighting on questions and answers, people racking up points with no value to their answers, people insulting each other.. some with no reason at all...
Yahoo helped to make a monster, but the people and all their pettiness keep it going. It's not supposed to be about posting block parties and having cliques, but it sure is used that way. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

When i got off answers sometime back the reason i put a block on all was so i wouldn't still get all the notices of questions being posted by my contacts in my mail,and Brandon asked a lot of crazy stuff that was not to my likings. A week ago i got back on & unblocked all but him for that reason. on my answer to a gal i got a notice my answer was taken off & i repealed but still have no reply from Yahoo on it,so i have not been back on .The fun is here at Yafooey for me.
