    This question , just as an example , has nothing to do with politics and so belongs in another category .

    Source(s): Was your question that got moved asking about Trump's hair or Melania's shoes ?

    If you go into your YA Activity and see that a question you asked is not located in the subcategory where it belongs, based on the topic, but it was previously located there, then it means a Level 7 user moved it. Some do it to harass a user, subcategory, or the entire community. You can relocate your question as can any other Level 7 user, but there is no guarantee that one or more abusive users won't put it back in a subcategory where it doesn't belong. Some even use code to automatically relocate questions to categories, so they don't need to manually move the question (and the routine will continue to run at a frequency they program, for as long as they choose, provided they keep their computer running and connected to the internet).

    Someone is Being a Troll and moving your Question to that Category for some Reason

    If its a Politic Post its Possible someone may not Like your Post Politics is a Dangerous Subject that I would Avoid Posting about Online all it can Take is 1 Person to not like your Posts and they get Hurt and then they Report It

    People on this site can have different opinions. Thus one can move the question categories back and forth.

    Looking at your posts, they are all opinion and soapbox ranting. With those types of questions, users with the opposite opinions will always be moving your posts.

    Oh, so you moved it with one of your sock puppet accounts (which is against TOS, btw)? Level 2s don't have the power to move questions.

    Perhaps your post was offensive or irrelevant to politics, which happens all the time.

      ALL users can move their own questions, even Level 1 users. They cannot move anyone else's questions.

    As long as you miss all the politics issues, Yahoo is working.
