Where are the moderates on Yahoo! Answers?

Question by mikal_1978: Where are the moderates on Yahoo! Answers?
Seriously. Where are the people who ignore party lines and take each issue on a case-by-case basis, instead of just mouthing what the puppetmasters (FoxNews, MSNBC, Rush Limbaugh, Young Turks, et al) tell them to say?

Where are the people who question not just the “other side” but their own?

Where are the people who don’t give a damn if the letter R or D or I sits after someone’s name?
I’m registered Indie. I’m in the middle of so many issues. Example: I’m for intelligent gun control, but I’m also a gun owner and have no intention of changing that.
Intelligent gun control means doing more to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable.

It also means understanding that “Gun Control” does not equal “Gub’mint’s comin’ to take my guns”.

Question by robocop48: Check out this yahoo news story….?
ANKARA, Turkey – Over a thousand Turks spent the first day of the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha in emergency wards on Sunday after stabbing themselves or suffering other injuries while sacrificing startled animals.

At least 1,413 people — referred to as “amateur butchers” by the Turkish media — were treated at hospitals across the country, most suffering cuts to their hands and legs, the Anatolia news agency reported.

the rest of the story is at: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061231/ap_on_re_mi_ea/turkey_animal_sacrifice_3

I thought only santera, voodoo, and african religions did sacrifices, does anyone know more?

The way a startup makes money is to offer people better technology. Google’s plan, for example, was simply to create a search site that didn’t suck. They had three new ideas: index more of the Web, use links to rank search results, and have clean, simple web pages with unintrusive keyword-based ads. Above all, they were determined to make a site that was good to use. No doubt there are great technical tricks within Google, but the overall plan was straightforward. And while they probably have bigger ambitions now this alone brings them a billion dollars a year. Google understands a few other things most Web companies still don’t. The most important is they put users before advertisers, even though the advertisers pay and users do not. One bumper stickers reads “if the people lead, the leaders will follow.” Paraphrased for the Web, this becomes “get all the users, and the advertisers will follow.” One reason Google will maintain its market share lead over its competitors is its spending on research and development. This investment in the future will hit $ 866 million this year, and its annual growth rate for R&D spending is higher than its two main rivals, Yahoo! and MSN. The bottom line is that Google’s worldwide gross revenues will reach more than $ 11.8 billion by the end of 2007, according to eMarketer estimates. Other researchers, such as Bear Stearns and Piper Jaffray, see even higher figures.

Yahoo hired Wenda Millard in late 2001, and she went on to instill a new sense of humility and customer service in the sales force. She was well connected to the pooh-bahs of branding and advertising and set out to help them understand and embrace the new medium and realize its potential. (Around the same time, MSN also hired an experienced magazine executive to reach out to ad agencies.) The new cooperative attitude between Silicon Valley and Madison Avenue is a big reason Internet advertising is booming once again: from $ 6 billion in 2002, it rose to around $ 9.4 billion in 2004. Yahoo, MSN, and AOL add up to 30% of the market, and Yahoo is the leader with around a 13% share. It’s also the number-one brand on the Internet, according to Nielsen NetRatings, with 89 million unique visitors a month in the United States.

Some of Yahoo’s ad revenue — the company won’t say how much — comes from the paid links that appear when you do an online search, an idea pioneered by its rival Google. But more and more is coming from branded advertisers. Yahoo’s ad buyers now include more than 70 of America’s top 100 advertisers. Ads are now by far the biggest source of Yahoo’s revenues.

How do I prevent the (‘) key from triggering Search function in Yahoo Mail Beta?

Question by DeppDogg: How do I prevent the (‘) key from triggering Search function in Yahoo Mail Beta?
For some reason, when I hit the apostrophe (‘) key while composing a message, it opens the “Find” window at the bottom. Didn’t map the key to do that and can find no way to “un-map” it.

I get E-Mails in my regular mail that I “Won a Yahoo” or other Lottery from the UK. How can Yahoo name be on?

Question by Meg W: I get E-Mails in my regular mail that I “Won a Yahoo” or other Lottery from the UK. How can Yahoo name be on?
I get an average of 2-3 per day. I know they can’t be legit, but how can the Yahoo name be used to make it appear to be legit and how do I let Yahoo know? Each one wants private info…the last one wants my passport scanned.. It certainly sounds illegal. I put to spam and then delete, but they keep showing up…been getting for probably over a month. What can I do about it? I never respond, but am now thinking of calling the police. When I block one address, it just comes back in a different form through my regular E-Mail, not spam. Anyone else have the problem?… and any suggestions for eliminating is requested from more savvy computer people. Can Yahoo look into and permanently block this type of “scam?” Thanks for any help with this.

Answer by amy n
