Yahoo got rid of the option for you to restrict the questions you can see to be from your own country's Yahoo by clicking a tab a while ago for some unexplained reason, I've read it's only a 'temporary' removal, are they bringing it back or retworking this feature?

Do those of you who condemn Halal slaughter by Muslims also equally condemn Kosher/Schlechta slaughter by Jews?
It is mostly the same thing, animals being ritually slaughtered for religious mumbo jumbo purposes.
It's hypocritical to slam one and ignore the other, simply because you like that religion/it's adherents and dislike the others.
As a vegetarian if I'm honest, I think it's hypocritical for any meat eater to whine about any other slaughtering practices when European/UK slaughtering methods are not particularly humane either, and animals are treated appallingly and in enclosed/horrible conditions before slaughter. I.e. factory farming, veal crates, live exports.
Is there genuine concern for animal rights - or is this simply an excuse by some to hate all Muslims?11 AnswersCurrent Events6 years ago
Yahoo! Answers: Are Yahoo! having financial problems or something? Is Yahoo Answers going to close down in the near future, or be sold off?
A lot of these recent so called "enhancements" seem to be a desperate way of garnering clicks, users and impressing sponsors, like hiding "irrelevant" answers, getting rid of country-specific filters, giving trolls the "Anonymous" feature to hide behind so they can ask and answer will all kinds of garbage, allowing L7s to move questions, and choosing our section for us.
The only decent change that has come out of this new format seems to be the ability to comment on other people's answers, all the other new features have hindered this site, it seems like just as you're beginning to get used to it, they add another dumb feature or remove something.
Is this site going to be sold off to Google or Facebook, or shut down in the near future or something?3 AnswersYahoo Answers6 years ago
I understand, that unlike American social conservatives/Republicans, they're more socially liberal, so they don't mind marijuana and homosexuality, but what is their general view on abortion - or at least the right of women to seek an abortion?6 AnswersPolitics6 years ago
Why have most of the world's religions tried to control sexuality throughout history and even today?
Male homosexuality in particular has always been condemned by most major religions, all three Abrahamic faiths included
They have all tried to control women and their sexuality, forcing them to cover up most (or all!) of their bodies in clothing and being chaste, Orthodox Judaism and Islam still this today, Ireland still bans women from having abortions and RC Ireland used to incarcerate women in Magdalene Laundries for religious crimes like being ultra attractive or having sex before marriage in as late as the 1960's and 1970's.
Men are encouraged to be chaste too, but not to the same extent, polygamy is permitted in Islam and Mormonism, but men holding religious positions like Catholic Priest are supposed to be virgins and remain celibate.
Religion also inspired anti-sodomy and other ridiculous laws across, making anal sex, oral sex and even masturbation illegal.8 AnswersReligion & Spirituality6 years ago
I'm using Yahoo Answers UK and I'd prefer to see UK only questions on some certain sections such as Politics and Current Events. Is this possible anymore since they've removed the UK/Ireland Questions only filter, or is there any updates coming to fix this issue?4 AnswersYahoo Answers6 years ago
Sharia law (that thing apparently taking us all over, you know?) promotes the same kind of "eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" barbaric judicial punishments that the far-Right would like to introduce to Britain, starting with the return of capital punishment.
Both ideologies believe in strict adherence to "gender roles" and hate feminism
A woman's place is the home, with the kids, barefoot and pregnant, cleaning behind the fridge and cooking dinner.
They're both staunchly anti-homosexual, and quite obviously racist, they don't want "outsiders" near them.
There are other parallels that could be drawn - but isn't it strange how much the far Right claims to hate Islam so much, citing these reasons?11 AnswersCurrent Events6 years ago

Spolt rich boy not getting any?
Just go off some blondes for revenge, then.
What's the solution to incidents like this, if there's any?
Better gun control? More proactive mental health legislation? Stop the saturated press reporting of the spree killers themselves and turning them into figures of infamy and notoriety?
I know it's the US (where else?), but surely those with mental health conditions like Aspergers syndrome shouldn't be able to have easy access to firearms. He was receiving treatment.20 AnswersCurrent Events6 years ago
