    Yes.  It's not like YA is a public organisation, and even if it was, you DID sign the "terms of service".

  • Yes, you did agree to this when you joined or Verizon Media updated it Terms of Service.  All questions become the property of Verizon once a question is answered.  No matter what country you are from there is a Term of Service that covers it.

      competent and understood what you agreed to. Ignorance is not acceptable excuse or defense in a court of law.

    Yes it is, for the simple reason that you AGREED to abide by the TOS  when you signed up. 

    You made an agreement and accepted the terms.

    Of course it is legal.  As long as the question is your property, just click edit and delete and it is removed.

    Delete a question 

    Sign in to Yahoo Answers. 

    Open your question. 

    Click Edit | select Delete question. 

    Click Delete again to confirm.

    However once it has an answers it then belongs to Yahoo and it no longer your property.

     Not seeing the option to delete your question? - Once another member has answered your question, it's not possible to delete it. However, you'll still have the option to edit your question.

    Of course. You agreed to abide by the Terms of Service when you created your Yahoo account (or when we all had to agree to updated Terms after Verizon purchased Yahoo) and part of those Terms state that what you post here, can be used by Verizon Media as they see fit.

    .

    Example - Item 6, paragraph B of the Terms (link below) states "when you upload, share with or submit content to the Services you retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content and you grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable license to (a) use, host, store, reproduce, modify, prepare derivative works (such as translations, adaptations, summaries or other changes), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, and distribute this content in any manner, mode of delivery or media now known or developed in the future; "

    They are the property of Yahoo as soon as you post them. You can only delete them if they have no answers. Click on 'Edit' beside your question and then delete it. If it has an answer the Edit button no longer appears and you cannot delete it.
