Yahho Answers. It has to be. It is GA's main competitor and even I
have to admit that although I joined GA as a commenatator almost 2
years ago, in 2 months I have had far more fun with Yahoo Answers.

I personally hope someone will take the mantle and start a similar
service, however the landscape is littered with failed attempts at a
similar service.  I have visited Yahoo! Answers, and IMHO, it is
nowhere near what GA provided.  With questions such as "Who would win
a fight between Superman and Zorro?" and "How can I get my boyfriend
to stop sleeping with my best friend?" provide entertainment, yes, but
not the service that the Researchers provided here.  Combine that with
the spam questions and non-answer answers, YA will never achieve the
level that GA did and could have had Google not abandoned the service.

While my activity as a Researcher dwindled dramatically over the last
couple of years, I thoroughly enjoyed "meeting" and interacting with
fellow Researchers and customers, I feel like I made a difference in
people's lives with certain answers (for example,, learned about
subjects, via research, that I had little or no knowledge about and,
overall, helped people.

If I had the means, I would start a service like GA, hiring the same
Researchers to start.  Any VC people out there interested?  :)

We are a group of very dedicated professionals who pride ourselves on
performing outstanding research. As such, I believe many of our
customers come to GA because they require complex research that
involves far more than a quick search by anyone and everyone who wants
to post a quick answer or opinion!
 If you have any interest in staying in touch and seeing where we, as
a group, might be going next, come visit us at

I looked at Yahoo! Answers once or twice. I was horrified. Like Queen
Victoria, "we are not amused" by complete inanity and ignorance.

With a couple of exceptions (who shall remain nameless) out of the
infamous 500, I've watched GARs give excellent, complete, thorough,
well-reasoned, well-written and, yes, entertaining answers to hundreds
of questions. That's no small feat, especially when the prices are

I've also enjoyed many of the regular commenters. I'd name them (as I
would my favourite researchers) but I'm sure I'd forget some and cause
offence. And some other customers/commenters have been extremely high
in entertainment value also, albeit not intentionally. I'm sure you
know who I mean.

Such a service would have to originate in a place like India.  There's
just no way for a U.S. based service to operate profitably.
