Do you think Yahoo might check a potential employee's Yahoo answers profile before making a job offer?

Do you think Yahoo might check a potential employee's Yahoo answers profile before making a job offer? Topic: Profile writing about a person
July 20, 2019 / By Maryanna
Question: Like if a person has done many violations by apparantly insulting/teasing members or writing nonsense do you think they might withdraw the job offer made verbally to him after they go and check out his profile? They only know his yahoo email id but I think they will have no trouble locating his yahoo answers profile using that info.

I dont think they would withdraw the offer based on that but it might be something that they take into consideration, afterall they set this up so people can find answers! It would also change the way they personally percieved the person even if it doesnt affect them professionally. Think about it this way, Target wouldnt hire you of you've been standing at their store yelling insults at their customers! Goodluck!

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.

There are just so many things one could check about a potential employee, I don't believe behavior on "yahoo answers" would be a major issue. Btw, not everybody uses this service. Anyway, if somebody is actually acting as an idiot on various yahoo services, I also guess they would use a different email/profile, otherwise they wouldn't just be acting.

Anything now a days is possible. I know some who check myspace accounts. You would be surprised what people put on their pages like drugs, etc... If an employer finds some one to have left rude comments on here that can show a sign they may be a problem then that is what the person deserves.
