This weird think is happening with Yahoo answers...?

Suddenly, and randomly, it seems, I will get the "recommended" list of questions instead of the "open" questions. Why is this, and how can I just see the "open" questions every time? Thanks!

Update:

*thing. Geesh.

Thanks for answering! :)

    It's happening because the beta Question Recommender is being tested out off-and-on with random users. Unfortunately there's no way to completely stop it from going to recommended questions, which is its biggest flaw.

    I don't like it much, which is why I made a comment about it on the blog (well actually 2 comments because the first one didn't show up right away) and suggest you do too: http://yanswersblog.com/index.php/archives/2012/06... You could also post on the Suggestion Board. There are already several threads there about it. http://suggestions.yahoo.com/srp/?prop=answers&que...

    If enough people complain Yahoo! may improve it. You might have noticed that we haven't seen the "new" ratings system for quite a while. That was because of the feedback Yahoo! got about it.
