Yahoo Answers was a fun, supportive community. It used to be an interesting source of amusement and information back in the old days, but I lost interest due to trollfest behaviour impermeating the site. Only returned recently upon hearing it was closing down. Unfortunately nasty old trolls are still lurking about, even the one that insists I am some guy from Italy 😳😒🥱... I am female from Southern Australia.
I guess I shall have to go back to my fish slapping dance now:

Learnt a lot of new stuff, some useful. Some just interesting.
It was at times interspersed with levity. So not all doom and gloom. But fun!

Yes! I enjoyed interacting with those in the sports category.

Yes, as a member of Yahoo Answers since 2006, it has impacted my life in a good, positive way. I enjoy helping those in need of answers. Along with sharing my opinion with reasonable people. Many here have good intentions. I pay no attention to the annoying trolls, they're just a waste of time. Life works best when you pick your battles. Definitely, helping others will always be a great past time for me. I always had full control of what to avoid and what to indulge in. I will miss Yahoo Answers. A thank you to all my special people, you know who you are. All the best.
(I participate in other Q&A sites too, and will continue to do so).

It was relaxing and fun, before the trolls took over. But even with trolling, it's still alright. Many other sites are to serious. And any joking around is forbidden as trolling..

I've had the honor of helping MANY people via Yahoo Answers--and having met one person my help benefitted and made their life better!
Having been mentioned favorably on TWO major network TV late-night talk shows was a wildly unforgettable experience.
That was back when Yahoo Answers carried GENUINE RESPECT; something it's sadly lost, courtesy of today's Socialist political dynamics.
