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.

I tend to totally agree everything you stated, John. However I personally have had a bit of trouble from PETA folks.

I spend time in the Agriculture, Zoology, and Environmental sections. There are quiet a few vegans in the environmental section.

I'm just fine talking about my permaculture farm, just so long as I do not mention we raise and butcher our own meat goats and rabbits. I've recieved a few nasty replies, and such because of it.

Off and on I've concidered making my Q&A private. In the end I've always decided not to.

First, I don't like to be bullied. Second, I hope some folks who are interested might flip through some of the questions I've answered and see if there are other things I've answered that might spark their interest.
