Why do some questions get deleted?

Sometimes, but very rarely, my questions and some others that I see on Yahoo Answers get deleted for some reason. I’m just curious, why does this happen from time to time?

    because multi-account trolls can remove *anything* they want by using MULTIPLE accounts to report your content into Oblivion.

    There can be two question by two different people asking the exact same thing, yet only one gets reported and removed, which indicates that Yahoo Answers is not fair and is often ran by clicks. There are many users with unresolved mental issues.  

    If yours is the one deleted, it means that there are a few users who don't like you, or it could just be one user with multiple accounts.  

    It doesn't have to be your answer they don't like, it could just be your name or avatar.  Like two identical answers, one gets  many downvotes and the other getting many upvotes and the only difference being your avatar, even though you answered first. 

    The clicks don't like Anons using the anonymous feature.

    Most Likely Due to a Violation of the Yahoo Answers Community Guidelines

    Check the Rule Book to see what you may have Done wrong if After Reading you find you did nothing

    Wrong then Appeal use the Alternative Appeal Form

    If you got a Violation Email Notice dont use the Link from the Message that one is not working

    Correctly you will get a Error message saying it did not come from your Account

    To Appeal go here

    Select Contact a Yahoo Specialist then Appeals then Follow the Instructions from there 

    Yahoo is Community Moderated the Staff does not Moderate the Boards

    Without an example how do you expect anyone to give a rational answer to this?

    Questions get deleted when members report them.

    Many possible reasons. Review the rules.

    Generally because they were reported buy several people for being inappropriate or violating TOS or community guidelines.
