why is the New York Times, along with other news sources writing articles mocking Yahoo Answers & its users?

    New Yorkers always mock people from the Sunshine State.  They think they are superior because they have to get used to all sorts of seasonal weather, like freezing fog, sleet and rain.

    They are the minions of the American empire! The toffee nosed establishment who knows what's best for others not of their class!

    (Their predecessors were the absolute monarchs King Louis and Czar Nicholas. Who decreed they were gods representatives on earth and as such not accountable to the filthy poor hoards they lorded over!)

    Not a single back bone between them TO challenge any war America gets itself embroiled into! They promote war mongering!

    You have to look at which country they serve! Certainly not the one they live in!

    Dual citizenship and its unintended consequences!

    Yahoo users don't get paid to shill!  Unlike them!

    Because it’s full of trolls and uneducated chavs like me and you who are good cannon fodder for mockery for those with an education and class (which none of us on YA have otherwise we wouldn’t be on here). They are amused by us fools. Quite right too. Where are my underpants? Oh here they are on my head. Quack quack, jibber jibber, quack quack. my old mans a dustman etc.

    I read the NY Times every day. Where are these articles you refer to. I haven't seen any?

    A day later (4/8), I saw the article. It really doesn't capture the flavor of YA.
