Quick question for Marrissa Mayer, the no-nonsense boss of Yahoo.
Why is it that when someone asks, “How long will the CIA continue to monitor individuals who are no longer deemed to be an asset to the US government?” on Yahoo Answers, UK & Ireland, the question is quickly deleted “according to our Community Guidelines”.
Yet when that same question is asked on Yahoo Malaysia, it's just a-okay. Have all the moderators been fired in Malaysia or does the CIA's writ not run quite so freely in that part of the world? That's a Yahoo Answer we'd like.
The best answer, incidentally, was “For as long as that individual lives, and then whoever comes to his funeral will be checked out”.
