Why does YA only send generalized emails of your violations without giving exact question or answer that was reported?

    Violation notice emails from Yahoo were not specific. Report notice emails from Yahoo did eventually give the text of the specific question or answer that was reported, but they were never specific about which guideline had been violated. Both types of emails should have had hyperlinks to the specific appeal page. The report notice appeal pages were different from the violation notice appeal pages.

    Note that I said Yahoo sent out those emails. Verizon stopped doing that in July to August and maybe September 2017. My last violation notice email was in August 2017.

    If you are getting any report notice or violation notice emails check whether they come from Yahoo of Verizon. In 2over 2 years Yahoo /Verizon MAY have changed the report notice email format. The Yahoo Help pages have been updated AF least 3 times, including relatively recently for the USA, but maybe not for Australia and southeast Asia and maybe Canada, judging from the URL addresses in the hyperlinks some people post.

    Source(s): The emails are entirely automated, generated and sent out by computer programs. Yahoo or Verizon staff usually do NOT personally email Y out anymore. That stopped in 2014.

    Because the site is owned by morons.

    "we believe you MAY have violated SOME guideline" obviously is not going to help anybody

    In the past, they would give the QorA, but that system was always glitching. This newer system does not. Check your notifications to see if it is listed. They can never give you details, there are just too many violations and it would take a staff of hundreds to make that work. The cost would be very high. If you figure out the QorA, and if you want to know the reason for the violation, post "Why was this question (answer) a violation?" and add the original e-mail you got and/or any details you remember so the users can see the exact context. The experienced users here will explain it to you. Many times the violation is not in the question but in the added details and updates.
