    Are you kidding?  This place has been kind of a joke since 2010 when comedy central's Tosh.0 started regularly trolling the site and publishing some of the more sketchy questions on the show.  At present, this is more of a chat based opinions site.   IMO, most of the people who have good intent in their answers usually end up getting reported and or trolled miserably.

    Sometimes you can find more insightful answers and stuff but usually its not like that and it's people trolling or being negative etc. you just kind of take a chance on posting a question but never post anything too personal.

    Yahoo Answers is a Q&A website that has not been reliable in quite some time. Many glitches have gone on for years. The site has experienced multiple massive spam bot attacks, Yahoo itself has had multiple security issues, and the list goes on. The site is currently having a number of issues with functions not working and we have no way of knowing why or for how long it may go on.

    .

    As for the users here, they come from around the world, all walks of life. The info provided by the users in response to questions may or may not be reliable. We can't verify the credentials of anyone here sharing info, but if they post a source for their info then the person checking the source can decide if it is a credible source or not. As for users asking the questions, again they may be real information seeking questions or pure nonsense made up by some bored person wanting to see how many responses they can get. It's a virtual crap-shoot.

    Yahoo was once a site where you actually get intelligent answers to your questions.   That was maybe 2006-2007--------

    by 2008......it devolved into a troll playground.....and all the "expert Knowledge Partners"   fled the site in droves..........

    after the Green Format ended.......the site, just in general , took another death spiral dive..........

    what was once maybe a "Good Users to Bad Users ratio of 90-10%   , soon became more like 80-20......then 70-30............and these days, were down to like.....maybe 10% good users, if that..........and 90% just nasty trolls purposely trying to crash the site.

    There are a mix of personalities. Some are nice. They are helpful and amusing. However, there are a lot of destructive trolls, too.

    It's as reliable as a potato giving you advice on which horse to bet on.
