I used to prefer Yahoo! Answers but in the last couple years they've been allowing stupid questions and stupid answers that get in the way and there's too much religious trolling. Ask is always on top of that.

The layout on yahoo answers sucks and it's confusing. You can comment on peoples answers, and give them a helpful or fun vote.. Also there are way more nicer people on ask. Yahoo answers sucks!

Ask has a much better variety of community members who really do try their best to answer questions in a helpful and usually intelligent way. The Mods and rules, although at times a bit frustrating, keep the site a lot better organized and civil,; there are way less "empty" questions, a whole lot less nasty name calling, and less putting down of people's ideas just because they might be different.
Ask is overall a lot more tolerant and open to just about anybody and their views, which in my opinion makes it much more interesting.
People seem to actually care about the other community members a whole lot more!
And then there's that layout, Ask has a much better and easier to read/navigate set up.

After reading that, Wittepier, if I wasn't already a member I'd sign up today. I've never visited Yahoo Answers but most of the reports I've heard tally with yours.

Hope this is not a promotional question. According to me usefulness of yahoo-answer is 100 times more than that of ask. They hold some amount of reliability and a plenty of good responses are there. Many a times yahoo answers are the best and easiest answer available using one of the most popular search engines. On the other hand ask community answers probably lack most of this. Good answers are increasingly decreasing I think. Only thing ask has better than the other is its look and designing.

Yahoo! Answers have too many trolls and harsh people. The mods who control that site, lets them get away with anything. Also, many people give stupid answers. We don't have any of that here.

Because Yahoo has given control of their answers to random people. If you ask a question on yahoo that someone doesn't like, then they can delete it- period. And yahoo let's TONS of racist hate speech in their questions. Not a happy place over there.

Ask is much better. Yahoo answers is okay but very confusing. The moderators don`t really do their job that well either.

Because in Yahoo Answers, it's based on Statistics and a lot of people on that website are very rude and impolite(they even delete the questions if I asked them twice, three times or even more than this). The yahoo moderators never removed people who are rude from that website. They even start bashing me and label me with OCD if I repeat questions a lot. In here however, the users are more friendly, and you're allowed to ask questions in the comment section without having to repeat the question again unlike Yahoo Answers.

Yahoo answers is complete garbage. Here, you can comment on other answers and report actual offensive matter...as with Y!A, they could care less.

On yahoo, I don't think you can report any comments/answers. On Ask.com, you can, and that can be taken care of. Besides, on yahoo, there are cruel/harsh/careless people, but on Ask.com, there are nicer people, willing to listen to others' problems, and help each other out.

Well I like it more because you can comment on people's answers, and have discussions, but I also like that it's more clean and there are less offensive, nasty answers
