    They didn't choose to explain it to us in a specific way, as per usual. Here is what the banner on the YA main page says:

    Per Yahoo:

    "In order to strengthen and improve community and engagement, we are temporarily disabling comments.

    Our goal is always to create a safe, engaging place to connect over interests and passions and we’d love your feedback on how to improve this experience. Please email us your feedback at yahoocommentfeedback@verizonmedia.com"

    Verizon Media, NOT YA, disabled commenting on answers at 12:34 am EDT Thursday morning/ Wednesday night because of safety and security. Verizon Media DID SAY THIS. Implies is it is?also for legal liability reasons. Commenting has been disabled across the ENTIRE Yahoo platform. Yahoo HAS DONE THIS BEFORE FOR THE SAME REASONS around the 2016 and 2012 elections. Commenting was restored AFTER the election.

    They apparently don't like users like me speaking the truth about idiot users who constantly insult people in the health categories... whoever is running this site, sure does want a quiet life.

    The official explanation was to make Yahoo! Answers a better place. Obviously, we don’t have any more details than this rather vague statement. So we can only speculate.
