* AWinnerIsYou: Given the sheer amount of time, energy and application it takes to move up the higher levels in Yahoo Answers, (geting from Level Five to Level Six involves accumulating 5,000 points) getting there is a distinct bloody anticlimax leaving you with the feeling of "why bloody bother?" They could do a little more to reward you...

* FunWithAcronyms: The name originally stood for Yet Another Highly Organized Oracle.
* LoopholeAbuse: On Yahoo! Answers, you stand a good chance of gaining points quickly by voting for your own answer as the best. You get 2 points for the answer, 1 point for the vote, and 10 points when your answer is selected the best, making a total of 13 points for doing almost ''nothing''. Of course, that doesn't work if the asker selects a best answer, or if some other answer gets more votes.
* ObviousBeta: Yahoo! Mail (the version codenamed "Minty"), with several users ''still'' experiencing hiccups compared to smoother functionality with Yahoo! Mail Classic, which is now virtually inaccessible save for [[http://us.mc598.mail.yahoo.com/mc/launch an obscure method which can forcibly revert the user's email to Classic]].
* SayMyName: [[EasterEgg Click the exclamation mark]].
* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Yahoo! Answers. Not only the users, but often the forum itself indulges in quite a bit of it.
