    Verizon did this, not Yahoo or Yahoo answers. No one really knows, but the assumption is people were getting so many death threats,  treats of violence on them, friends , and family members, including children, grandchildren and great grandchildren that Verizon disabled personal email. Verizon took on the legal liability that Yahoo had, That is one reason why after Oath was dissolved in October 2018 Verizon Media was created as a subsidiary to manage YA for Verizon for tax and legal reasons.

    A number of privacy internet laws have gone into effect in the USA in 2011 and 2013 that Verizon and Yahoo have to comply with.

    Emailing other members used to be an option here, but they stopped it years ago because the system was being abused.
