Is Yahoo Answers really just a popularity contest???

I mean really!!! I see so many good answers posted and yet they get a thumbs down or two! Real proper answers that, reading it, one can tell that the person has put some real thought and effort into what they say, only to receive a thumbs down!!! I’d like to know who goes around giving good answers a thumbs down... show more I mean really!!! I see so many good answers posted and yet they get a thumbs down or two! Real proper answers that, reading it, one can tell that the person has put some real thought and effort into what they say, only to receive a thumbs down!!! I’d like to know who goes around giving good answers a thumbs down and WHY!!! I’m starting to think good answers don’t really matter on yahoo answers! Not only that, I’ve seen quite a few questions deleted, one my own... Do people get off on reporting random things and giving out thumbs down too people who don’t deserve it?

Is this just a popularity contest? What do you think?

I think it must be!!!
