Yahoo Answers is shutting down on 4 May 2021 (Eastern Time) and the Yahoo Answers website is now in read-only mode. There will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services, or your Yahoo account. You can find more information about the Yahoo Answers shutdown and how to download your data on this help page.
How do you reflect back to your experience on Yahoo Answers?
This will be my very last question.
Yahoo Answers helped me get through a lot of tough times, it certainly changed the way I am today for the better.

Overall, my experience on Yahoo Answers has been a good one. I enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others and it makes me happy to know that I helped some of them find what they'd been looking for. I'm going to miss it.

Looking back, I see that I actually got involved here around "a decade ago," based on Yahoo's timestamp of my answers.
Yahoo helped me get through some tough times too, although not in the obvious sense. I never asked questions, I only answered...but I think that's what was so helpful: it made me realize that, no matter what I was dealing with, there were other people out there, going through something, or just looking for answers. For those questions I chose to answer, I tried to answer them as clearly and completely as I could, in the hopes that I was actually providing some help.
It also gave me a *little* of a sense of community--although again, not in the obvious sense. I didn't make any connections with anyone here, and there were definitely times when I was curious how a particular situation may have turned out, but I didn't inquire further. I think it was just a neat place to come to because, for me, there was always a new group of people here, asking and answering questions.
Another thing I enjoyed--and which I will sorely miss--is the continuity. There were times in my life when I checked in regularly over the span of a few days, answering questions and checking my feedback, and then there would be gaps of weeks (or even months) before I would think to come back, but I always enjoyed the sense of knowing that, hey, it's there, it will always be there...and there will always be someone who can possibly benefit from the advice I can offer. *shrug* It's a teachable moment for me, a reminder: nothing lasts forever. As the title for the last episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" says, "All Good Things..."
I don't know who'll read this, but I just want to say that I'll miss this place, and for those of you with whom I interacted, I hope that Yahoo Answers (and my answers in particular!) helped you get to a better place in your personal journey. And, as I've often ended my answers:
"I wish you the very best of love and luck!"

Hydrogen peroxide "H2O2" kills nanoworms inside face masks. The elite is faking that they took the real vaccine; the real vaccine will cause spiritual and physical damage. When will the official churches start praying for the false prophet? Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good. SSN is written as a barcode/QRcode; then it's put into a chip; chip is put into vaccine; chipped people are influenced (by super computers) to receive grey plastic card World Passport with no name on it (but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays). If you reject mark of the beast (by hiding within a 10-15 people group according to saints Gabriel Urgebadze and SeraphimofSarov), then your direct ancestors go to heaven (according to saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov from Ural). First vaccine shuts off your immune system; second vaccine gives you diseases; third vaccine puts your immune system back and it will start fighting the diseases and will cause death. Saint Paisios from Mount Athos said that the devil wants to deceive the rich with freemasonry, poor with communism, and believers with ecumenism. Elpidios Vagianakis said that there will be seven “mark of the beast” vaccines; reject all of them! Documents are from Satan; burn all the documents that you can find. Electronics will be used to track you. Even old broken unplugged 1970 TV set will show the evil flying antichrist using Tesla's ether. Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good; always pray the Jesus prayer or to saints who help right away (like saint VyacheslavKrasheninnikov according to whom if you reject mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to heaven); forgive me.Source(s): Pray the Jesus prayer just like priest ElpidiosVagianakis asked you to do: 33 times (symbolizing 33 years of Christ) at 6am, then at 9am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm, 12pm, 3am. If you remember, awake, etc., pray it. Later you will pray it in your sleep. Documents are from Satan; burn all the documents that you can find. Electronics will be used to track you. Even old broken unplugged 1970 TV set will show the evil flying antichrist using Tesla's ether. Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good; always pray the Jesus prayer or to saints who help right away (like saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov according to whom if you reject mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to heaven); forgive me.

My overwhelming reflection on this place is, apparently, having my final goodbye which I put on this section earlier REMOVED. Well 'rude words' to that!!!

A way to pass the time when it was slow at work.

I will look back on this site and think I did my very best to answer questions by passing on my knowledge to help others. I have seen a lot of users come and go and seen some brilliant users on this site with a lot of knowledge, who all deserved the Top Contributors badge that they earned.
Sad to see the site close, but pleased that it is closing as it has not been the same brilliant site that it used to be.
This category is one that I have used a lot, when I first started on this site this category was the place to go when you needed any info about the site. So cheerio everyone, and you all take care now, it has been a pleasure to answer questions with all of you.

It's casual. And relaxing. That is before all the trolls go on. I mean about a year ago.
But I going over to Quora. I feel like when my friend moved about a month ago. Seriously
