Yahoo Answers is shutting down on May 4th, 2021 (Eastern Time) and beginning April 20th, 2021 (Eastern Time) the Yahoo Answers website will be in read-only mode. There will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services, or your Yahoo account. You can find more information about the Yahoo Answers shutdown and how to download your data on this help page.

Why do people that have no contact information ask you questions in their answer?

Update:

Ok,all you people who said you can add details and get responses respond back.

My experience is that once a person answers they usually don't come back to the question.

I will accept your edits as proof I am wrong.

    Well I check back when I ask questions, but usually when I ask questions of the asker its rhetorical or to get you to think something through.

    So did I answer your question?

    I'll check back!!

    Also if you click on the avator you go to the users profile and sometimes you can contact them that way!

    Apparently all answerers are supposed to have magical telekinetic powers and be able to supernaturally develop these people's e-mail addresses and screen names with divination.

    Or -some question submitters are morons.

    Maybe they don't want an answer to the questions they ask. Maybe they don't fully understand your question. Or maybe they think the question will help to to find the answer to your question
