How to block a user on Yahoo Answers

Keep your Answers experience fun and informative. If you're having trouble with another community member, block them.

Three ways to add someone to your Blocked List

They'll lose access to your Network, your Q&A via your public profile page, and no longer see an option to contact you via Yahoo Messenger or Yahoo Mail.

  1. Move your cursor over the profile picture of the user you've chosen to block, and then click Block.
  2. Go to the user's profile banner page, and then click Block.
    If you're currently following the user, you'll first need to unfollow them.
  3. You also can block a user after you've received a Yahoo Answers message from them. To do this, follow the link in their email which points back to their profile page, and then click Block.

  Tip: Blocking a user will not stop them from contacting you directly through Yahoo Messenger or Yahoo Mail.
