There isn't a Reply button BUT...These are your options. Switch to desktop if on mobile. You can add details by the pencil icon / edit tab under your question. It is NOT a violation to add details or even to add @ name. Use the add details feature ONLY to give any extra useful and practical information that helps to clarify your question and what type of information you're looking for. *****Read Y!A team approved thread "How do I reply to answers?" http://suggestions.yahoo.com/detail/?pro... You'll also be given the option of posting a short comment when you Choose a Best Answer to your question (you'll need only wait one hour for the blue Choose as Best Answer buttons to appear with each answer). If you wish to have a conversation with another user.........You can email another user by clicking their avatar and see if they allow email or I.M and email them through answers if it shows Email but if the link doesn't show they do not allow emails you can't email them. >>>For you to send emails you have to allow them and allow others to send them to you. To activate emails > Go to http://answers.yahoo.com/ Click small fork / wrench icon on right of your avatar Scroll down to Answers Community Can contact me via email..(Your address will remain private) Can contact me via Yahoo Messenger ...(This will make your messenger and Yahoo Id visible to Answers community) Check one or both and Save.

Y staff do not moderate YA, WE do - we are all Community Moderators and this is the hundredth time explaining this thousands of violations pouring in every day - there are 200 million of us and only a handful of Y employees - just think about that for a minute... and try to figure out how fast Yahoo would have to close down YA due to it being overrun by spam and trolls, not to mention porn and extremely explicit and vulgar sexual content trusted members EARNED that trust and the ability to delete what they report by ACCURATELY reporting thousands of violations with almost none being overturned on appeal those who report poorly quickly lose their status at trusted members why do you think that a Q is immune from being reported once it has a BA? - there is no statute of limitations on violations - ones from eight years ago are reportable and should be reported as no one wants to do a search and find an old post with porn or racism in it! ==================== this is why we need to see the WHOLE post: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:vuuwL80ToL0J:https://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index%3Fqid%3D20140520043732AA6jhry+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca "And also Who do you think the intended audience is? What are three things the writer does to reach that audience? What appears to be the writers purpose? And lastly do you think the writer achieves that purpose? Why? Best answer and ten points to whoever can all answer the questions I stated in this question :-)" this is clearly a solicitation for homework, given the formality of the long list of questions you asked under the main header - your one answer showing in the cache is a violation but that person knows you are soliciting homework then you defiantly posted it again but left out the list of questions, but turned it into a rant violation by lashing out at the douchebag who reported it well, guess what, that douchebag is no douchebag but a seasoned reporter who knew this was a violation and lo and behold, you lost your appeal 145 appeals on 145 violations or 145 appeals on this one? either way, that should tell you you need to figure out what you're doing in this site
Addison Originally Answered: Should Yahoo answers disabled the report button for all users so only non Bias Yahoo mods can report the questions and answers?
No, I disagree, there is no way Yahoo could afford to hire sufficient moderators to check the thousands of questions and answers posted daily on this site that is why there is community moderation which includes all of us. Usually it takes is 2 or 3 reports by "trusted" members although sometimes more and in rare occasions only one to report a post and the bots remove it.Possibly I'm misunderstanding but if your question has been reported 145 times and your appeals were all unsuccessful you should take a serious look at the community guidelines.
Addison Originally Answered: Should Yahoo answers disabled the report button for all users so only non Bias Yahoo mods can report the questions and answers?
NO! Aside from taking things way too seriously, and the fact that there isn't enough staff to do what you suggest, we all agreed to abide by the rules when we signed up to use this site. It doesn't matter how minor the violations are... if it's a violation, we shouldn't be upset or surprised if it was reported. Your question was definitely a violation so you have no reason to complain. You just have to learn the rules and abide by them. It doesn't matter if you don't agree with any of them. I don't know what you mean by "weed out trusted members". Do you even know what having a high trust rating means? It means that user ALWAYS reports accurately. That's the ONLY way they become that trusted member. That said, there's nothing to weed out! Most reports are not false. And when someone does report something that turns out not to be a violation, it's usually because they thought something was a violation... not because they just felt like reporting someone. When a question or answer is reported and deleted, it's usually because it was reported by 2 or more people. There's no way of knowing if it was one report by someone with a high trust rating. But if it was, again... that person reports accurately.
