I fucking hate Yahoo Answers and the idiots who use it
I also hate Google for promoting content from Yahoo Answers -- which is virtually NEVER correct and only ever seems to contain information from the type of people who talk just to hear themselves talk -- to the top of nearly every search I perform at Google.
My favorite Yahoo answer was a response to a woman whose Sharpie had dried out and she wanted to get the ink flowing again. People suggested dipping the tip in warm water or rubbing alcohol, but one evil person advised tying a string to the marker, going into the backyard, and whirling it over her head like a lasso: "The centrifugal force will rewet the tip of the marker and make it usable again."\
God only knows how many people did that, uncapped their Sharpies, and got handfuls of indelible ink.
What kind of searches do you do, OP? I never get Yahoo Answers anywhere near the top of my results.
It''s a prime example of what my mother called "exchanging ignorances."
Yahoo is at least not a site the turns up the c-word at every query.\
Stop using the c-word on DataLounge.\
It''s violence against women.
At least you''re (for now, at least) tailoring your mantra to each specific thread. Points for that R4.\
Let''s see how long this will last (or, alternately, I start going crazy again and sign out for a few days).
How do you feel about the effeminates, r4?\
Better yet, what does Yahoo Answers say about them?

Good one! I would have suggested putting the marker tip in mayonnaise overnight.
Yahoo Answers is hilarious! The average IQ there hovers around room temperature.%0D\
If you have a question and want responses from people who aren''t a bunch of mouth-breathing morons, Ask MetaFilter is pretty good (see link). But keep in mind that there are doofuses everywhere, and if you have a serious problem or query you probably should take it offline and consult a pro.
People who hate women are also people who hate homosexuals.\
Queers who degrade and demean women are self-loathing homosexuals.\
If you hate women, you hate yourself.\
Stop the DL violence against women.\
Stop using the c-word on DL.
you should know, OP, that google has now started letting users "tailor" their search results by blacklisting various websites that show up. Though they say this will not "yet" affect PageRank, it probably will soon.\
Run a bunch of searches and demote them, maybe it will make a difference.
Is Richard Simmons Gay?\
"No he''s NOT, like DUH, he has a girlfriend"
I''m curious - in the string of Sharpie responses, did anyone suggest buying a new one?
R10, how do you do that? e-how would be another site that I''d demote. It comes up near the top in most of my searches.
An old friend was hospitalized for renal failure.\
Internet searches made me think this was an irreversible condition that would require dialysis and a kidney transplant.\
When they released him after three days, I was up in arms and ready to go ''DCFS'' on the hospital, nursing home, etc.\
I called my intelligent friend - who set me straight and gave me better materials to read.
I started another Yahoo Answers thread a few days ago not knowing that this one was alive and kicking, until R1 one of that thread mentioned it. Below is the one that caused me to start that thread. I just like the way the way the question is rephrased as if the first time asked wasn't clear enough. The question is still open should you wish to answer it.
"When is spring in Arizona? ?
Spring time in Arizona?? When is it?"
The best section on Yahoo Answers to witness idiots and those who like to make them suffer is Religion and Spirituality. The clueless, ignorant, low IQ Christians post answers indicative of lack of gray matter usage while the DL-like atheists sweep in with their supposed superiority to crush them. The Christians return for more, undaunted, because they're too ignorant to realize what's been done to them and/or don't understand the arguments used against them. They just persist in more of the same. Of course, some of the atheists just post short, cruel answers without argument or reason, somewhat like R1s on DL.

"There were no such thing as cave people. If there were they were to dumb to mater. How in the heck would people survive against wild animals for thousand of years if they were to stupid to invent toilet paper, a wheel, or motor? Let alone a cell phone or computer. The only one they should mater to is college professors who look like the cave men pictures except they have more cloths on. LOL PHD"s"
haha, r20, here's the answer: "the vet she can dignose whats the problem then give them some medicine that problem should go away after some extracise."
exchanging ignorances, indeed.
Hilarious. Laughing at the displays of ignorance.
Get a load of this gem:
Atheists: Now that they discovered the God particle, do you finally believe?
Well? Your precious science has once and for all proven you WRONG! Will you FINALLY see the TRUTH? Rational and logical people only needed faith but now tht there is INDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE of GOD can you finally accept Him? Or will you continue to deny? I bet most Atheists will be so bitter and angry and delusional that they'll still refuse to BELIEVE!!!
I use yahoo answers to ask and answer questions related to python programming. When you limit your scope to something specific and which you're good at it avoids all the issues pointed out here. Like circle jerking for example. You guys should do something about that btw. Get a life, or a job maybe.

Lots and lots of homophobia in those answers.
[quote]and the idiots who use it
Apparently you have used it a lot OP since you have learned to hate it. Who's the idiot?
Word, OP. And R28 has not only Yahoo answers, but many answer sites to a T.
The ones that really scare me are the idiots asking medical questions about babies, old people and other vulnerable people. I once read something like "my baby she has high fever of 40 and is shaking bad and is vomiting all her milk my freidn says baby's have high fevers anyways and i am paraniod lol should i take her to the docter". And someone with even less brain cells answered, saying the baby should be given a little rice cereal in their milk, which will "thicken in the stomach and stop the milk from coming up and halt dehydration."
Whenever I read stuff like this, I always remind myself that these idiots can vote, drive, have children, own guns, etc. And then I realize why this country is so screwed up. "Idiocracy" is closer than we think.
Most of the people there are just rude, rather answering your question instead they seem to think that criticizing on how 'dumb' your question is a suitable answer. They don't even answer the question anyways, so why bother to post a response??
It's so awful you're FORCED to use Yahoo Answers, OP!
I saw this sign at Reckless Records a used CD/DVD/Record place.
We accept returns for valid reasons. Buying a CD you, you already have at home and forgot about is NOT a valid reason.
The go places the show places a Sheraton
No place on Earth you'd rather be...
Really NO PLACE. I think a bit of an overstatement there.
