Will there ever be a time, when answers to questions are done politely on here?

Or is there always going to be rude and disrespectful ways of answering?

    There will never be a time when all posts here are polite and appear to come from reasonable, mature people with manners. IF more people who saw violations reported them, there would be a LOT fewer inappropriate posts, and the users who rarely (if ever) have anything appropriate to say, would either play by the rules or leave. Consider those rude/disrespectful people have a LOT of issues of their own (nobody who has a pleasant life and is emotionally happy, behaves that way). They really deserve your sympathy. It's sad for anyone to have such a life that all that comes out of them is dark and negative.

    No, those days are long over,............if they ever actually existed here at all. 

    Yahoo use to take out the trash..........but these days,  the trolls and stalkers have total and complete free run of the place.....and they know it.

    Not really.  But back when there was actually moderation worst offenders actually got banned a lot quicker.

  • There are always going to be rude people here until they suspend them.  Even then it does not help.  You get suspended and make a new account and being all over again.  Some people think it is not rude to tell someone they are stupid because they don't know what they know.  Some don't even know they are being rude.  Yes, if you can believe it they think that calling someone ignorant is not rude.  Time as come to get rid of these people and never let them return.

    This was once a site for serious and polite exchange of info.  The trolls started moving in . . . Yahoo decided that Answers didn't produce enough income to justify much staff time so standards were not enforced as investment was decreased and it has degenerated into what it is today.  Will probably not recover.

    There are times when people get polite answers.

    But the wording of a question and where it is placed can show clearly that it wasn't a "question seeking knowledge" but rather a troll or a rant that will be answered in kind.

    Was that polite enough for you?
