    Yes, they sure have lost their sense of humor along time ago.

    "Is the occasional daft questions essential on Yahoo™Answers? Or have users lost their sense of humour before they log in?"

    Nearly all of the comedians got run off from this site when mass reporting was rampid back in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

    I agree with the other users in that yes, this place was not meant to be a comedy website. But Jeez! In the process of "cleaning out" this site even the people who asked legitimately smart and knowledge seeking questions that couldnt be answered on google; they were run off too.

    I dont like saying this, but the content on here now is just STUPID as all get out. Or just black acid hatefull.

    But then again much of that mass reporting back then was never about getting rid of people who were actually violating the rules. As much of it was targeted and but many users (usually the dull and unimaginative ones) were left completely alone.

    Maybe you are just coming across as stupid and a troll instead of being humorous.

    Not essential, but would be okay IF it didn't tend to lead MANY others into thinking nonsense posts were okay. I'd rather no "daft" questions than to see dozens of them, in every subcategory. Humor is great, but where is the line drawn between letting one 'cute' violation slide but not another?

    There are sites with few or no rules, and the 'comedians' should seek those out. YA wasn't designed to be a comedy board, but a repository of knowledge and experience (and yes, some humor can be contained within those things). The cute and non-obnoxious humorous questions/answers are overshadowed by the blatant nonsense, vileness, repeated chat/gossip, insults, bullying, etc. What's humorous to one person, won't be so to someone else.

    YA can make anyone lose their sense of humor. Especially when Trump is having one of his melt down days and another member of Congress dies. Even gorgeous weather outside may not be enough to entirely remove the feeling of dread about possible futures. The ambulance showing up in the apartment 3 times in one day for the same person is a real depressant.

    If they were occasional, that would be fine. But once you start allowing them, they become regular and repeated. As to daft, what some call daft, looks like insulting, blue, and just cruel to others.

    Silly/stupid questions that are posted over-and-over again tend to be reported -- especially ones that include photos. That's how the community moderation system tends to work. It usually takes about five to seven separate reports to delete content.

    Magical Transformation trolling is one example.
