Thank you for the reply to my post. To answer your question, I have yet to appeal the decision of Yahoo Answers to suspend my account. I am in the process of gathering the information needed in order to enhance the appeal. As to the reason for the suspension, it was due to my having allegedly posted links to spam as stated in my post here on Bleeping Computer. I received 2 emails from Yahoo containing the following information.First email:
It has been reported that you have posted content to Yahoo! Answers in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. As a result, your content has been deleted. Community Guidelines help to keep Yahoo! Answers a safe and useful community, so we appreciate your consideration of its rules.
Question: How do you remove the Antivirus soft virus from a computer?
Deleted Answer: You will need to end the process before you will be able to download or run any type of malware remover. If you are able to access task mgr you can end the process there. If not, then click on the first link below and choose save. Save the file to your desktop for convenience. Click on the icon and let rkill run. This should end the process of the virus allowing you to download Malwarebytes from the second link. Update and choose quick scan of MBAM. * http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.comhttp://www.malwarebytes.org/

As I stated to Pandy in a previous pm, I am not so much concerned about the Yahoo Answers account as I am the principal of being classified as posting spam for recommending Bleeping Computer and Malwarebytes. I'm sure that even if the account was re-instated this issue would arise again as this is the routine practice of the Yahoo Answers review team to make capricious determinations without any meaningful review of the content. Thank you again for your assistance in this matter and I will keep you informed of the situation.
