Strong opinions as violations on Yahoo Answers

Respectfully expressed strong opinions that contribute to useful knowledge for the community are OK on Yahoo Answers. But, questions and answers that express hate and intolerance have no place on Yahoo Answers and should be reported.


  • use slurs to refer to groups of people.
  • insult other members.
  • act in an aggressive or threatening way towards others.
  • report someone because you disagree with that person’s opinion.

It's up to each member to report people who engage in this kind of behavior, and to refrain from participating in it.

If you see something that's personally offensive to you, but it doesn't violate the Yahoo Answers Community Guidelines or Terms, please don't report it. Everyone has opinions, and it's what makes Yahoo Answers vibrant and fun. Report violations, but please be tolerant of different opinions.
