It is evident that many users have more than one ID.......?

and use those IDs to vote for their own best answers. Why doens't Yahoo Answers delete them for abuse?

    I bet they do, once it's proven with evidence, and first there must be a complaint filed. How often have you answered a question to find yourself the only answerer, and able to vote for yourself as the question moved down the list quickly because of so many new questions asked? Some people just can't say no to a bad idea, and will eventually get caught, but until they do are pressumed innocent. I don't think Yahoo monitors every question and answer, but I trust they investigate each complaint.

    I don't think it's wrong to vote for our own answers as the best, as we only get one vote. but multiple accounts is definitely unfair practice. It's nothing at all like all the members of a family voting for the same person. it's EXACTLY one person in the family pretending to be each of the other family members .. who don't even exist ... lmao

    It doesn't really sound fair. But who cares what they do? It's not like you really get anything by earning points anyway. If they want to play around with that many ID's, that's their problem, not mine. They must not have a life out there. I don't need any more balls to juggle, plates to keep spinning than I already have.

    LOL---I'm almost to Level 6. When I get up to Level 7 do you think I could win a new Hummer H2 or something?

    Voting their own best answers? That's just pathetic.

    That would be really time consuming for them to do that. Oh well, if they get off, on their own votes, let them.

    No different than having multiple members of your family vote for the same political candidate running for office.

    So, what's your point?

    Some people have such sad lives that they have to do this, I would understand if people would do this if they were winning stuff, but if they do it just for points let them! does it affect you??
