I was wondering how many of you actually use Yahoo! Answers. And what do you think of the idea, the execution, and the community.
Whenever I google questions, I always get links to Yahoo Answers! They usually answer my question too.
I answer questions when I'm bored sometimes.
There's so many people I don't feel much of a community. It feels like an application more than a community for me for some reason. Odd way to put it, I know.
microsoft owns Yahoo! now i dont use it.ever.googles better
I sometimes use Yahoo awnsers, but some of the awnsers I get. A ton of awnsers are mindless crap that even I know isn't true. Like when I was looking for a way to use chemical elements to color fire, I came across a yahoo awnsers link, and the best chosen awnser was their is no way to color fire. It was entirely stupid

I like Yahoo! Answers, but it sometimes feel like theres too much community in it, like when idiots reply just to earn points. Sometimes it feels as if the points get in the way of the actual response, almost like reputation here.
Then again, I enjoy laughing at some of the idiotic responses and questions posed in the Computers & Internet category :D

My dad works for Yahoo! I'd know about this.
That aside, I wish Google would kind of model Google answers on Yahoo answers. Or even Microsoft, if they had a similar service, I'd be up for it.
