What to do when I am being harassed on Yahoo Answers?

What to do when I am being harassed on Yahoo Answers? Topic: How to write a who what where when why poem
July 20, 2019 / By Tye
Question: There is this guy whom I answered once and ever since he's been harassing me. He writes question after question asking why I "hate" him or how he can can stop me from hating him or how he wrote me a poem. I don't know the guy, really. But he keeps writing these questions and then I also keep running into him answering random questions in my favourite areas of Yahoo Answers and ending with some lament on me every time. What can I do to get rid of this problem? I already blocked him, but I had my privacy up anyway... he knows where I frequent and I am bothered by the fact that my name shows up all over Yahoo Answers because he decides to make up all of these questions. I did report quite a few answers he gave denouncing me... but nothing has happened. Thank you Kuku Kajoob. I will proceed as you suggested and change my profile enough to be in disguise. I picked a name and I will pick you for best answer once that is possible. Thank you!

All your information is private, so he's not tracking you this way. Change your avatar picture and your user name & assume a new identity ..at least for a time. ( click on your avatar> edit my preferences) You can hover your cursor over his avatar and block him. That wont stop him posting about you. If he's calling you out by name. Thats a reportable violation. You cant call out other user's names on posts. It appears you 2 are in the same category all the time, so maybe its time to branch out for a while..and try another category.. or website etc. Whatever it takes to remedy this.

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

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.

Sweetheart dont hear to him, definite iagree with the guy who mentioned to document him, bt additionally dont enable this get to you, regrettably he has no longer something extra suited to do than harass you. detrimental ingredient might desire to be dealing with some issues himself. merely document him and flow on. Dont pay ideas to peoples misery. A:)
