Here is a copy and paste of Yahoo! Answers response to a posting this this editor made on their site. One of their “trusted” members deleted my posting, and as you will note, for no good reason. They do offer an “appeal process”, but it is as worthless as their “trusted community”. I’ve contacted them before, and they ignored me.
The answer on Yahoo! Answers was reported and deleted by one or more trusted members of the Answers community:
“Neither. They’re both part of a criminal enterprise in D.C. called the political system. Want war? Want to continue seeing our taxes go to bail out bankers while the bankers are giving themselves million dollar bonuses? Want to see drones flying over our cities watching us? Vote for Obama or Romney. The definition of insanity is voting for the same morons over and over, and expecting things to get better.”
