The feature was intially ***started*** because users like me, and others, who were the frequent target of trolls and stalkers, begged Yahoo for a way to deal with these psychotic pests.
Alas, what Yahoo came up with, was the Anonymous feature. A way for you to post........without anyone knowing who you were----so your stalkers couldn't see you or find you.
All well and good......but as Always, Yahoo fails to take into consideration that the TROLLS then also have the same powers.
So after about 3.5 SECONDS, trolls realized they could now just post harrassing questions about you, *anonymously* and stalk you to DEATH.
Thank you Yahoo........very helpful. (*heavy eye roll)
Just like when Yahoo thought they were "rewarding" Level 7's by giving them the question moving power............again, thinking the GOOD users would use this new super power for GOOD, for the **IMPROVEMENT*** of the site..............they once *again* failed to realize that Anonymous TROLLS would now ***also*** have the same super powers.
and it takes a troll about two weeks to point game a level 7 account from nothing.
so about 2.5 seconds after THAT rule went into effect.......my every POLITICAL question, was being moved to Rodents, and LGBT, and Make-Up, and Pondicherry, India, and other stupid categories, where they clearly did NOT belong.
Thank you again, Yahoo.
Perhaps, they should have given that power to actual level 7's, with like over 100,000 pts or something.
