Why do people hide their questions and answers?
Asked By john h,Last Answer By Bohemian_Garnet_Permaculturali At 2010.08,1 Answers

And maybe the more important question is Why does Answers allow them to hide them.
It seems to me if a person is asking honest questions and giving honest, helpful answers they would not want to hide them. I get a lot of useful information looking back at someones answers when I see that they give some good advice on a question. When I see Q&A's hidden, I start to doubting anything they say. Yahoo Answers allowing people to hide their Q&A's seems to go against everything that they stand for, which is to provide people with a forum to get good honest helpful answers. I realize that there are some people on here for other reasons. Providing a hiding place for them seems to encourage these people. If I am missing the point here, someone clue me in.
I am asking this in Agriculture because these are my people and the one's I'm interested in hearing from.

Do people Answer questions on Yahoo Answers..........?
Asked By Frankly Speaking,Last Answer By Professor Kool At 2010.10,1 Answers

...more for the purpose of sharing their observations and knowledge with people who might be helped by them, or for the purpose of self aggrandizing themselves ?

I see a great deal of the later and some of the former, but which do you think is more prevalent here?

Recently someone posted a "question" of whether they should or shouldn't be proud of reaching 100 "best answers." Obviously this was a thinly veiled attempt to embroider their own efforts with the praise and allocades of others.
Is yahoo answers more a platform where narcissists can momentarily satiate their hungry egos through self-golification and acclaim from others,or a place where individuals can aid people in gaining insights and information to solve their own quandaries ?

I mean, by the time you ask a question, wait for responses, dig through the idiotic 'i don't knows' and trolls insulting you, not to mention the blatantly wrong answers - you could've just had your answer by searching for it.

Why just GIVE them the answer? How does that help them learn? I understand HELPING a student by guiding them, pointing them in the right direction so they can research their question and find the answer themself.

C'mon people, don't just do their homework for them!

I personally find it outrageous! I mean where was yahoo answers when I was in school?!?! heck i see so many homework answers being posted and all these people answering....what do these people gain? they don't get paid a dime, these kids aren't going to learn much except getting someone else to do their work.......

If the kid is trying hard and stuck on a problem or needs advise fine, but entire questions and problems are being fully posted.......

How many pedophiles hide out on yahoo answers??
Asked By jimmysbigbone,Last Answer By braless69er At 2010.10,1 Answers

I have to ask this because there are many top contribs who ALWAYS navigate to the small penis questions on yahoo answers and have such GREAT advice for the little tykes and their tiny *****, I have to ask if you are taking notice of these perverted trolls as I am, I have a list of them and have been tracking their movements through the yahoo answer community for a while now and the patterns are very disturbing. What worse ? the small penis questions or the pedophiles who rush to be the first to answer and say things like " email me and we'll talk " (you know where that is going to end up dont you?)

As a person who answers questions at Yahoo! Answers Photography what is your goal? What do you hope to achieve
Asked By Mere Mortal,Last Answer By Picture Taker At 2009.12,1 Answers

Anymore, I'm just killing time. I used to think that I was helping people who wanted to learn, but I think that represents only about 5% of the people who come by here these days. Maybe it will be better come September.

When you teach, you learn. Often I would know enough to know WHERE or HOW to find the information the person was seeking, but not enough to give an authoritative answer. It was educational for me to look up the answer for them.

I went through a spell where I wouldn't even answer a question if I couldn't learn something from the process.

Now, I come here just to see what my friends are up to.
