Yahoo answers daily answering limit?

Okay i thought yahoo answers was meant to help people, help people. What is up with this "Daily answering limit" I have responded with a pull paragraph to almost every question i have ever answered, and i went to answer another, and apparently i have reached my "daily answering limit" Can someone tell me why this is in place?

    Members of the community between levels 1 - 4 have daily limits imposed to deter abuse of Yahoo! Answers.

    Unfortunately some members of the community create accounts with the aim of being abusive and malicious within the community. By limiting the number of answers such users can post, certainly at level one, such actions can be monitored before any major damage can be done.

    Furthermore such limits promote users to collect points and increase their level. The higher your level, the more questions and answers you can post each day, for example at level one you can only post 5 questions and twenty answers a day. Save up your points and earn level two, and this increases to ten questions and forty answers each day.

    It's great to hear you like sharing your knowledge within the community. The next Yahoo! Answers day starts in 4h. Why not come back then and answer some more questions ?

    All the best

    This stops "fly-by-night" users (bored kids, silly users, spammers) create and account, flood the site with lots of questions and leave. The limits encourage serious users to use the resources wisely and earn points to move them up levels as well as gain experience using the site, get to know people, and establish their reputation and user network.

    Also... by having limits, it is easier to "weed" out trouble makers at the early stages.

    Hope this answered your question.
