Yahoo Answers is like the Wild West for questions. You can ask anything; and the general public answers your questions. With the general public giving answers, you get a range of helpful answers to completely stupid youtube-like responses. It’s a mixed bag, and that’s what partly makes it fun. Anything can happen.
Yet, Yahoo will delete questions. This is the Wild West, man. Don’t delete questions! Is this Yahoo trying to be all intellectual? I got news for you, Yahoo. You ain’t intellectual.
Yahoo, you are the Youtube of search engines. Yahoo is like Sears. All utility. No style. Yahoo is the White Sox fan of search engines.
Here are six questions I submitted that Yahoo has deleted:
Are there any web development agencies in Chicago that do Drupal work?
— Why did Yahoo delete this question? It seems like it would be really helpful.
Are there any artists who made artwork with other famous artist’s signatures?
— Yes, this is an obtuse question, but obtuse questions expand the spectrum of types of questions that can be imagined and asked.
If you found a magic stick, what would you do with it?
— Only a person with cold, hardened heart would delete this question.
Is there one screen to see if any of my friends made any new playlists in Spotify?
— Another specific question that would be a help. Maybe too specific?
What American cities have the most parks?
— Now this seems to be the type of question that Yahoo would totally want. My mind cannot comprehend why this question was deleted.
Why do ewoks like croquet?
— Yes, yahoo hates ewoks.
