    I was also banned, I think they call you "NONAME" after your banned lol

    I posted one of my site's url's, so I got banned, but it is quite relevant to the question.

    i think if you keep posting your url everyday, something like some proxy owner do, you will get banned.

    I've found the easiest way to get round a ban on Yahoo answers is ask a friend - or on somebody else's net connection - if they can post a question, for example "I'm looking for a RED XYZ, but I can only find BLUE or BLACK xyz's, can anyone help me find a red one as I need it as soon as possible". You then answer, yes I found the red one here [insert your site link]. Easy.

    Yes but that takes time, who is going to call their friend to post a question on Yahoo?

    Next your going to see Yahoo Answer question/answer trades going on in the freebie section like SU! lol

    Lol. Another post questioning my authenticity. I wish an admin would look at my IP address and Spider Man's IP address and finally verify that we're more than likely from the other side of the Earth to each other.

    lol.. i got suspended for posting the same answer to more than one question. It doesn't make sense because all the answers were relevant to the question :p. I contacted them and they basically told me i was lucky my email address was not banned! lol

    That really sucks. Usually you'll get banned if someone reported you, even if there was no reason. I got banned before too a couple years ago on my main email, but I just used one of my other Yahoo emails. It was annoying to have to switch between emails all the time, but Yahoo Answers is a lot of fun and a great way to get exposure for a website if you implement it properly.
