Why do questions about abortion and gay marriage get removed? Are people not allowed to have opinions on this?
I answered two questions that other people posted, one regarding abortion and the Lacy Peterson law, and one regarding gay marriage. Both questions were removed within a couple of minutes. Are we not allowed to discuss topics other than 'how much wood would a woodchuck chuck' on here? Or is opinion really only interesting as long as it doesn't pertain to any serious matters?
Probably becuase those types of questions are too political. And it probably violates Yahoo's policy for this thing. I dunno I haven't read the policy, but that's truly my guess.
Maybe Yahoo is a gay hater.
Searching the Community Guidlines, I can find no specific prohibition of these topics. There is a mention in the Usage catagory about prohibiting anything that angers or incites users. Perhaps they feel those topics are just too polarizing to the public.
It's also possible (but probably unlikely) that the questioners themselves deleted the questions. I've included a link to the Community Guidelines for you to review.
Perhaps they were categorised incorrectly? Most of the dodgy questions I've seen pulled weren't in the right category. Maybe they need to add a feature to shield offendable people from the real world?
