    You can try posting in a different subcategory (make sure your questions are appropriate for that location, though), stay Anonymous, and change your posting style if it easily identifies you. Otherwise, the abusers will continue with their abuse and there's no way to stop it since we have no reliable way of reporting that kind of abuse.

    No there isn't.

    There's several people moving your violations in hopes that others will report them.

    (I'm assuming they are moved to "abuse&spam" , "installing the engine" and other yahooproducts-categories)

      There ARE users who use scripts to keep questions in a specific category. Some do it for their own questions, some do it to harass other users.

    There is No Bot Yahoo Gives us a Option to move it Under the Blue Edit menu

    There is no way to Avoid your Question being Moved

    The only thing you can do is Move it back to the Correct Category

      Yes, there are users who use scripts to relocate questions. As long as their computer is running, a question will be returned to the subcategory of their choosing at whatever interval the script is programmed to run.

      Yes, there are some users who use scripts to keep questions in certain categories. Some do it with their own questions and some with other user's questions.

    I don't know how to avoid the thumbs down but I do know how to prevent the person from moving your answers permanently let me give you an example if your question is about mental health. Start your question off with the words mental health. Should I say a psychiatrist if I can hear voices in my ears? that's just an example but if you begin your question with the topic the Yahoo bought will put your question back where it belongs no matter how many times somebody moves it.

      No, there is no automatic recategorizing of questions on this site, by the server computers.

    Ask your questions anonymously and avoid trolling (which includes posting the same sort of questions over and over again).
