Why is Yahoo deleting questions that they are bias about, isn't that taking away first amendment right for freedom of speech?

theses questions I see pass the standard conduct for yahoo including threatening, or conveying unwelcome sexual content, harassment and abusive speech , so what's the deal? 

Update:

Lan is just a trouble maker, he is always reporting everyone

    Also preventing answers with words or phrases they do not want, nor like. It's all part of the collective censoring the social platforms are now actively engaging in, in a very bias, partisan manner. I never thought I would see the day where in the US, speech was censored as much as it was in the USSR. The only difference is, it is not the government but big business that is doing it. You know, the Big business that supposedly the left are against and the right are for. Yet for some reason, big business would rather see the left in power then the right. Makes as much sense as Obama and Hillary still hold the the number one and two spots, for the amount of funds received from big business.  Or the fact that the wealthy gained the most wealth at a faster rate then any time in history, under Obama. Yet i say again, the left are the ones that supposedly oppose big business, or at least that is what they tell their flock.

    I think trolls with multiple accounts will  report questions to get them deleted to obtain some sort of rush

    This law only applies to government suppression of the speech of U.S. citizens.  Unfortunately, it doesn't apply to businesses.

    Most Likely Due to a Violation of the Yahoo Answers Community Guidelines

    Check the Rule Book to see what you may have Done wrong if After Reading you find you did nothing

    Wrong then Appeal use the Alternative Appeal Form

    If you got a Violation Email Notice dont use the Link from the Message that one is not working

    Correctly you will get a Error message saying it did not come from your Account

    There is no Freedom of Speech on here there are Rules that you have to Follow if you choose not to Follow the Rules thats what happens 

    To Appeal go here

    https://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?page=conta...

    Select Contact a Yahoo Specialist then Appeals then Follow the Instructions from there

    In addition to not understanding what is meant by free speech, you obviously aren't bright enough to see that other members are reporting your posts.   I am reporting this one as a chat/rant violation because you aren't looking for information.   You are just crying about how unfairly you think you are being treated.

    Posts are removed when enough users report them as violations. You can post again here and ask "Was this question a violation" and include the exact text of the question, including any updates, URLs, or images associated with it, and the users here will tell you if it appears to be a violation or not. If not, you have 7 days to appeal to have it reinstated.

    Free speech applies to how the GOVERNMENT will treat you with regards to allowing you to say what you please. Yahoo Answers is not associated with the government, and you (as did we all) agreed to abide by their rules when you created your Yahoo account. IF you feel you didn't break any of those rules you agreed to, then DO appeal the removal of any content of yours that was taken down due to other users reporting it. Yahoo does not review removed content UNLESS the user who posted it appeals to have it reinstated.

    Only the government is forbidden from taking  away your free speech.  Private individuals and companies can do as they wish.  It's like you may have the freedom to say what you wish but I have the right to toss your butt out of my house if you use language I don't like.

    There are no Yahoo! staff deleting questions. This site is community moderated. And freedom of speech protects you against government restrictions. Yahoo! is not a government entity. The first amendment doesn’t apply here.

    Freedom of speech doesn't apply to privately owned companies like Verizon .
