My best answer points are being stolen I think. Why?

Every day I am getting several best answers. But of late all the points are not getting added. Recently I changed my password as per your instructions.

    Naguru, I agree with you. I tried contacting yahoo answers management several times. They never resolved the issue nor gave any explanation of why it happens. I believe they have no interest in resolving the issue. We are screwed ... that's the bottom line. I even told them that answerers are why yahoo answers survives. But it did not matter. Guess it is our choice whether to continue using this forum or not. As an alternative, there are several other forum that are equal or better ...

    You just "answered" one of my questions which absolutely nakes no sense. If u dont have anything useful to say dont bother commenting and wasting peoples time!

    when they switched over to this new format, there was a big drop off in points. Part of it was that people could not vote on questions---and Yahoo 'forgot' to publicize that the askers had to come back and pick their own answers.

    They need to put in a device prohibiting question posting unless you agree to come back. Or have the question auto-deleted.

    Hello Naguru, seems something has gone wrong with the network of Y!A. For the past three or four days so much of confusion in the presentation of questions posted by those in contact with us. May be one such error of not adding your points though you have scored in a genuine way. Let us wait and see.

    Why do you have a Yahoo Answers if you're going to be a smart ***? Don't answer people's questions if you feel the need to be smart about it. Thanks! :)

    Dear naguru,

    please do not give flippant and thoughtless answers to someone's very personal questions. especially not for the sake of gaining notoriety or "points". i have seen you answer a few questions with what appears to be very little consideration of the question. not only is it disrespectful, it can be at times, very harmful. looking at your profile, its obvious that you are more concerned with looking wise than making responsible decisions. if you MUST "answer" as many questions as you do, please read the entire body of the questions and not just the headline.

    That you are "keeping score" is curious. Points? Is this a game to be won? Share knowledge so as to spend your life wisely. Also curious: many, many answers, but very few questions? “Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”

    You don't give real answers, just meaningless, barely relevant "proverbs." And now I can see why - clearly all you care about is getting best comment status.
