Yahoo! Answers has been in existence for nearly ten years, preceded by Ask Yahoo! And while it was perhaps not intended as such, it has become a home for several online communities. I remember joining at its peak, and being fascinated by the constant interesting questions by an endless parade of characters. Rather than shutting it down, we ask that you hire a new Yahoo! Answers Team to monitor the most obscene or otherwise controversial content.

Whereas it has become quite obvious that the honor system simply does not work to keep those without honor from abusing the system, shutting down the entire website is throwing the baby out with the bathwater, so to speak. An unnecessary step that will leave a gap in the lives of many users. Many of us have absolutely no idea how to contact one another outside of Yahoo.

In addition, Yahoo! Answers still has the potential to be a great exchange of ideas again, but it must be managed properly. Do not give up on it, merely because some of your users choose to be terrible people. Dispense with the foolishness of the honor system, and implement a new team, rather than destroying it all. That will create a much more positive Yahoo! Answers experience for everyone.
