    Some idiot wrote a yahoo answer question about one of my companies 2 years ago and it is still page 1 of google. It is not bad its just that the idiot put the wrong city that my business is located in...and it causes so much confusion. I have flagged it several times but it doesn't move.

    How do I get it removed? It is wrong information and I can not find any way to contact yahoo. If anyone knows on a contact method let me know. Thanks!

    If it's not something real, I guess you can send a report for that? I don't really remember if a resolved question still get the button, but if it doesn't, try to report it straight to yahoo.

    Hope it help

    Use a site like microworkers or something and offer some cents to report. maybe make a bunch of comments like, "The city mentioned is {incorrect|misleading}, caused me a lot of {hassle|...} blah blah.

    Perhaps, if they see too many flags, it might pop up on someone's radar and they might take it down.

    Send them a message on the "Send us feedback" page..I'm not sure how responsive they are on that TBH but it's worth a shot to finally get it off

    The only way to get this removed is to have multiple people flag the comment. I am not sure how many flags it takes, but I do know that they have to come from different accounts.
