For all you fellow night owls...copy and paste this information to your outlook express and send in to addy.?
Dear yahoo answers team
I am writing you once again in hopes that I might enlist your help as to what is the best way to handle this particular situation and get some direction from you.
The answers country music category has been under attack the past two months from an abusive member who has created 26 accounts. 2 of those accounts have been suspended to date but there are 24 currently active at the moment; 12 of those created in just the past two days.
Each of their accounts is used to post 5 questions per day; all repetitive questions. This amounts to over 100 questions daily, all the same, being posted to the board in which has created a considerable amount of angst for the individuals that wish to participate in answers for the purpose it is intended for.
Unfortunately, this person feels he has the right to abuse the other legitimate members by inundating us with the same questions using different aliases over and over.
According to your guidelines, posting repetitive questions is against the TOS or CG. I have made an attempt to report them as I see them but fear that it only adds to the overload of reports that you already have to deal with. 24 accounts is rather hard to keep up with and has destroyed the legitimacy of the country music category but if you would be so kind as to use the information provided, I have faith that you could do something in order to preserve the integrity of the site.
I am providing you with the history and profiles of each ID in hopes that someone would be so kind as to take a further look into it and determine that is in fact, considered abusive.
Please advise as to whether this information is of use to you or provide me with some guidance as to what information you need in order to prevent this from continuing. As it stands now, many members have ceased participation out of mere frustration while others are taking complete advantage of it by answering hundreds of the question knowing full well that this member does not choose a best answer so it provides them the ability to add to their status by answering.
The other problem created by this type of abuse is that those who are posting legitimate questions, seeking an answer, are overlooked as their question does not even stand out among this person's incessant behavior, making it incredibly hard to be seen or heard.
I am truly at a loss as to what to do and / or what I can do in order to provide you with the information you need in order to cause the abuse to cease, if that is even possible.
Thank you for your time and I would greatly appreciate hearing from you and any insight that you can provide me.

Done! Let's hope this gets rid of him!

I've just answered this question for someone else. Essentially, the free version of Yahoo mail no longer works with Outlook as a POP 3/Push email client. You'll need to upgrade to Yahoo Mail Plus, which is chargeable, or switch to something that Outlook supports, such as Google Mail or an address that your ISP supplies. There may be other options, but I hope I've pointed you in the right direction.

Edit - Yeah Cazman, I feel the "pain", it just utterly amazes me how they will let the C***sucker get away with this, and I get a violation for saying no to one of his questions... go figure...
