Where did my answer go?

Hello!

We're working on updating our spam filters. If you posted an answer and it didn't show up, or if you received a notification that someone answered your question, but the answer was missing please post the link to the question here.

This will help our spam filters be more accurate in the future.

    I frequently encounter a situation where my answer will appear when I'm logged into my account, but if I view the question while not logged, my answer no longer appears.

    Examples of this happening to my answers can be found on these questions:

    EDIT: It appears that even this answer was flagged as spam. But, sometimes if I edit the answer and resubmit, it will appear again.

    Spam filters can be arbitrary.

    Facebook is getting so weird - so cautious.

    I know we live in a wilderness of mirrors but golly they need be coherent about it.

    There used to be so many unstopped images posted here and now they're worried about advertisements?

    So shoddy.

    Well, when half of your answers disappear that makes the users disappear. Before this issue started it was multiple answers being reported now that is fixed the answers just magically disappear.

    I would like to know why some of my questions don't appear.

    Excellent! So glad this is being addressed. Thank you! I have an older secondary account that is frequently blocked by the filter unless multiple updates are made (which often aren't worth it).

    I've also noticed (when using this account) that when in a category (the Yahoo Answers subcategory, for example) I'll answer some questions, but then when I back out to the Yahoo Products category and scroll through it, I'll see questions that are located in the Yahoo Answers subcategory that I couldn't see while in that subcategory. I could only see them in Yahoo Products.

    yea look i know im very smart very intelligent high iq individual and yahoo is censoring my answers left and right i can see it then no one else can see it and they cant learn my agenda and its really tragic you know i have so much to share with the yahoo community as i am a very high profile individual as you know and as i obviously know because i work side by side with agent Trump for america and you know i think the community needs to know about our efforts as you would agree and as others have said they tell me IDUPPPS, you really need to post more on yahoo and i tell them well you cant see my answers but they continue and beg for my brain power which is significant by the way and you know im compelled to answer their requests so on behalf of the Russo-American government i would like to ask you to fix this highly unfair censorship that has been thrown upon me so i can get back to doing what really matters, and that is working for President Putin. Thank you.

    Ironically, many of the answers to this question are hidden. Thank you everybody that responded. We're working on fixing this.

    I find that resubmitting an answer multiple times eventually makes it show. Whatever the cause is seems to be random.
