Weasel McWeasel's answer to this question was not surprising to me given what I have seen from him over the years, I do feel bad for him  or anyone else that wishes that others 'roast in hell", just because they say bad things about you,and he also does not seem to appreciate or care that how you talk to others impacts what they say and think about you. I for sure will not miss him or users like him that I have seen here.

@.: If asking a question like this is a chat violation ,like you said it was, then it's my opinion that it's a silly rule.

    I do not like trolls and spam.

    I do not like them, Weasel, I am.

    I do not like them here or there,

    I do not like them anywhere-

    I do not like them on Yahoo here,

    I do not like them on Twitter there.

    I do not like them on Reddit bare,

    I do not like them on Tapatalk , I dare

    In fact I do not like trolls and spam-

    I do not like them, Weasel, I am.

    So I will not see you here or there,

    I'm afraid I will not see you anywhere.

    Yahoo is done and now I am free,

    and all my stalkers can burn in hell, ya see?

    So Goodbye my friends, I am well and done,

    I will remember the good times and all the fun.

    and to those that stalked me, and stalked me well.

    You can all go roast in hell.

    I will miss it 

    As far as what the Reason was 

    Yahoo Answers has not been doing well Lately a lot of Users have Left Poor Maintenance of the

    Site they have not Fixed a lot of the Problems they are Likely Losing Money on it as well so

    They feel its Best to Close it Down If there not going to Fix it they minus as well Close it

    Re: shutting down, I'm disappointed but not surprised. Alas, it's questions like this one (chat violation) that added to the decline of the site.


    As for why (which has been asked dozens of times already) Because Verizon Media is choosing to shut it down (just as they did Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Groups). No specific explanation was given, but considering the significant decline in quality of content on the site versus the cost of cleaning it up and keeping it running, it's not a surprise (a disappointment, but not a surprise). Do you really think this question hasn’t been asked dozens of times already? One need only review the question list to find the responses.

    I'll miss it but I was addicted so it's for my own good.
