Yahoo answer is a place where people can post questions for other Internet users to answer. However, sometimes people post wrong questions or spam content. In such cases, it is necessary to delete the question in order to keep the website clean and free from meaningless posts.
How to delete questions on yahoo answers?
Log into your Yahoo account if you have not already done so. Click on the “Questions” link located at the top of the page. Find the question that you want to delete and click on its title to make it open in a new window.
Click on “Flag for Spam” if the question contains spam content or abusive language, or it is irrelevant to Yahoo answer, or badly written. After flagging the question, you should see a “Flag” button appearing on top of the question.
Click on the flag to reveal an options menu. Select “Report Abuse” and click on it. You will get a pop-up message containing relevant information about your claim. Simply check the box if you want to submit your claim anonymously and click on “Submit”.
Fill out the form and click on “Continue”. The claim will be submitted to Yahoo customer service. You should receive a confirmation email about it.

Contact Yahoo Answer support
You can also contact Yahoo by writing an email to email@example.com. Check your spam folder if the message does not appear in your inbox.
Sometimes, you may not get an immediate response from Yahoo customer service since they probably receive more claims than they can handle. You will receive a notice that your claim was received and your email address will be added to the list of people sending feedback to Yahoo answer. If enough people flag one question, it should get removed eventually.
However, there is no need to wait for a long time in order to receive a response from Yahoo customer service. You can simply check the yahoo question again in a few days. If your claim was approved, it should have been deleted by then.
In some cases, you may not delete the questions even after flagging them or reporting them as spam. In such cases, you can simply create another Yahoo account and flag the question using this new email address. This will help to remove the same questions from your prior account as well.
You may also delete embarrassing questions by changing their title and deleting their body content if it contains any personal information that you would not like to share with other Internet users.
Yahoo answer has set several rules
It should be followed by Internet users. You should not post any question or answer which is identical or similar to another existing one, use abusive language, solicit personal information from others, impersonate others, advertise commercial websites or write spam content without links.
Most of the spammers post gibberish that is not in any language because they do not want to get caught by the Yahoo security team. Also, spamming several times might make you look like a robot and it will become easier for the Yahoo security team to find out about your activity.
