With more and more questions in that Ching Chang Chong gibberish, is there any doubt Yahoo is colluding with the Chins?

    Collusion if the spam is actually generating money for the site as clickbait, when irritated users click on it to move the spam to other forums.

    Here’s my theory:

    When a question is posted to Yahoo Answers, Yahoo processes it through a spam filter where the question is checked against known spam questions and known non-spam questions. If the question is found to have a suspicious amount of similarities with spam questions, Yahoo “shadows” the question, meaning that, while the question might appear to the asker as if it were posted, no one alse at Yahoo Answers will be able to see the question.

    However, ever since Yahoo made it possible to change a question’s category, a vulnerability was born: If a question’s category is changed, Yahoo automatically makes the question appear in that category without processing it through its spam filter. My suspicion is that Chinese trolls have discovered and have exploited this vulnerability.
