    I think you're asking how do you avoid your yahoo answers getting reported as spam (and deleted), which also jeopardizes your yahoo account. The question I must ask you is, are you spamming yahoo answers?
    Yahoo answers is great. It is free, very popular and can give you a good amount of quality traffic. But you have to know how to use it right.

    1) First and foremost, do not just give a short answer and throw your link out there. Your answer must provide value. If you answer the question adequately, you will get traffic to your site.
    2) You have to find the right questions to answer. Pick new questions that are related to your niche.
    3) Don't write the answer with the mindset of getting traffic and a sale. Develop the mindset of actually answering and helping the person asking the question.
    4) Cloak your affiliate link. Using an affiliate link looks way too spammy.
    5) Focus on certain problems in a niche and provide solutions.
    6) Test, test, test. Try different niches and monitor your results.
    7) DON'T SPAM. Remember, yahoo answers can provide you a lot of quality traffic, but you must provide value first.
    Hope this helps :)

    ^ This. Pay attention to these recommendations because they are excellent and will dramatically decrease the chances of your answers being flagged.

    Dont post your first answer with you link. Do some duty to this site and after some reputation, then you can post your links.

    This is all depends on employer website link. If your post or website you include looks like spam, yahoo answer members will report as spam. Then your account suspended. But if your post look natural it will not happen. Some members have bad attitude, they reported spam without any infected spam.

    and answer some other questions.

    But maybe the OP meant how o prevent other people post spammy replies.

    Many people ask questions to get dumb people posting "I don't know" (no offense to the previous poster) or simply post affiliate links.

    The best way to fight spam is reporting the users and leave negative feedback on those useless replies.

    You get 100 points just for giving your 1sr answer. After that you get 2 points for each question you answer. You need to have 250 points to be on second level. So, that’s 75 answers you need to give before your links are live. It’s not really hard to do.

    You should try searching relevant questions from the site and wait for your points to go up before you include a link for your site. :)

    According to me that is the most important thing that you need to take into account while answering questions in Yahoo answer. Do not over exploit this website else your account will going to be banned!

    This guy knows what he's talking about. I have a question though: Has anyone used AnswerEye? Its a software that allows you to answer up to 1,000 Yahoo Answers daily when using the professional version. I've been contemplating getting it, but haven't heard of or seen any reviews on it. Any takers?
