Why do perfectly legitimate questions that do not violate guidelines, get deleted?

Update:

The question I asked was: "Why won't they let Spider-man grow up? Why is he written as a perpetual loser in his social life and career wise."

What guidelines did I violate there?

    I had some questions reported and nothing is wrong with them. many on here have tons of accounts and go around following some on here and report you but they hide behind so you do not know who they are

    Most people here have their accounts set to private because anyone who doesn't becomes a target for trolls and stalkers unfortunately.

    Sounds like some big Spider-man fans got offended by your question which is of course very silly.

    I wouldn't have reported that question myself, but I can see how it might strike other people as borderline 'chat' rather than a genuine 'knowledge-seeking' question.

    I've been on here since Yahoo Answers started. It has been my experience that 9/10 times the poster thinks his question /answer was " perfectly legitimate " when according to the rules it wasn't. Unfortunately Yahoo doesn't tell you what was wrong with your question ( too many man hours required), and if a member posts what was wrong they are considered to be chatting - another violation.

      GOOD answers and GOOD legit questions are NOT being taken down by "Trusted Members" They are being taken down by TROLLS gaming the completely broken system, which can ONLY be done, if you are playing 50 sock puppets here. GET IT NOW?

    ANY post gets deleted because enough users/accounts report it as a violation. Yes, that happens to legitimate posts as well as violating posts.

    Posts are wrongfully reported for a variety of reasons which may include one or more users:

    *doesn't like the user who posted it

    *has serious issues with the topic that was posted

    *is just randomly reporting posts and doesn't care if they are legit or not

    *don't understand the CGs/TOS and think a post is a violation when it actually is not

    It's also not uncommon for a user to think their post isn't a violation, but it really is. Many don't understand what constitutes a 'chat' violation (for example) or they may ask a perfectly fine question but post something in an update below it that causes their post to become a violation. It's also not unusual to see legit questions posted but an image/meme uploaded with it that causes the post to be a violation.

    If you post legit questions then why do you cower behind an anonymous post.

    Funny how true accusations make people give thumbs down isn't it?

    Like what perfectly legitimate question? With a filter bot? I have to see it with a modestly dressed eye first.

    because the idiots who designed Y!A set it up so users police what goes on here.

    that allows bullies and misinformers to have the most control.
