    Questions can be reported and deleted by other users based on the trust level of the reporter it can be just 1 person or more than one with a lesser trust rating.

    Questions are auto deleted by a software program that weighs the trust status of the reporter, the person being reported and if it meets the criteria questions are removed and a notice sent to the person reported.

    The reported content goes to and stays in the database until appealed and then a human sees it..

    If the person who was reported appeals the violation then a Customer Care agent will look at what was reported and based on their decision it may be restored and the 10 points returned also.

    If the appeal is lost another 10 points is deducted.

    Yahoo has a computer program that receives every abuse report filed by the community. When it gets enough reports from other users, the program deletes the offensive question. The user who posted it will receive a violation email from Yahoo.

    A computer programme.
