Why does Answers always jump away from 'Answers' & onto "Discover'?

    "Discover" has been the default setting for12 or more years. With the change in format on Thursday, everyone is experiencing this. It IS VERY annoying. We will have to live with it until the IT technicians or engineers do something. Once again, we are unpaid beta testers for Yahoo/Verizon. They really should.pay us 25 or 50 cents each time we have to tap the Answers tab.

    Wrong default. It's annoying, isn't it? Every time you switch categories you have to change to Answer again.

    because the monkey throwing darts at a dartboard at Yahoo HQ  hit the  "Screw up the site and lose more users"  space again. 

    It's amazing how many times that monkey keeps hitting that same exact spot 

    Just ONCE I wish he could hit the spot that says. 

    "Make an Improvement to the site that everyone LOVES! " 

    Or,  "Fix some broken feature". 

    Or "Update the 3 year old frozen main leaderboard". 

    (assuming the dartboard even has any of THOSE spaces.....instead of all NEGATIVE ones) 

    But since the monkey NEVERRRRRR seems to hit any of those spaces,  I can only assume the dartboard doesn't have any of those.

    Because nobody asked for that, obviously.

    or maybe it's verizon's way of saying: "look how popular these questions are. You buying advertisement-space here is definitely worth it"

    Can only assume it it up the number of clicks you have to make to navigate and that helps advertising revenue.

    Yahoo has Discover set on Default that is why that happens

    That is very irritating, isn't it? Just another glitch in this "new" layout.

    Discover (trending) is just the default. They management does not understand the problem.

    Because no one at Yahoo knows how to make good changes to this site.
