UPDATED: Yahoo! Hosts Deletes Anti-Semitic Diatribe

yahoo_answers big.gif

JUNE 1 UPDATE: The anti-Semitic question and answer have finally been deleted by Yahoo!.

According to commenters on the popular Yahoo! Answers website, Judaism "glorifies genocide" and Orthodox Jews "consider mass-murder to be very honorable." Although this hate speech clearly violates Yahoo's guidelines, the posting was not removed — even after the violation was reported to Yahoo!.

The posting has been up for over three months, and has remained up for at least two months after Yahoo! was notified of its anti-Semitic content.

It seems the question has been deleted. But looking around the site, there are plenty of anti-semetic comments going around.

I wonder if I had anything to do with this? After CAMERA posted this last week, I went to the Yahoo! page and flagged the answer as offensive, using one of my several Yahoo! email addresses. A day or two later, using a different Yahoo! address, I also flagged the same response as offensive.

To quote a charcter from a 1980s TV show, "I love it when a plan comes together." Thanks, CAMERA!
