They don't. But the questions seem to be a beacon for people that want to post bad comments, insults and other items that violate the Terms of Use of the web site. As an example the first answer to this question was nonsense. And it was posted by the person that asked the question. Which indicates that they were not serious about the question in the first place and simply wanted to abuse the site.

In order to prevent the abuse, some of the answers are protected by Supervisors. They are usually opened up after a few days, but further abuse will result in them being locked down again.

When you post a question in the "Enter a question here..." box at the top of the page, it can be seen by anyone browsing the WikiAnswers. So the question is not private.

How is WikiAnswers different to other search engines?

The main difference between WikiAnswers and other search engines is that WikiAnswers ... isn't a search engine. WikiAnswers is a Q&A database, and not anywhere close to a search engine, so that sets it far apart from other search engines. Plus, anyone can ask, and answer, and categorize, questions at will, without having to sign up. Plus, your question is either here or it isn't. If it isn't, you can ask. On search engines, if your question isn't there, it isn't there, and you can't do anything about it.

If wiki doesnt want to answer a question dont offend the person asking just close the site down and we will go elsewhere?

WikiAnswers questions are answered by humans. If your question doesn't get answered, it is not because "Wiki doesn't want to answer it." It is because there are literally THOUSANDS of new questions on this site every single day, and it is very difficult to keep up with them. The site cannot be closed down just because one question doesn't get answered.

What would happen if you close your browser without signing off WikiAnswers?

Nothing bad. WikiAnswers just waits for the next time you log on.

Something is wrong with Wikianswers. Whenever I type in a question it usually shows other questions related to the question that I asked but it won't do it. What is wrong here?

WikiAnswers always does that. It just means nobody else has asked exactly the question you are asking. You could try rephrasing your question, to see if something close to the answer you want turns up. Otherwise, simply ask your question and wait to see if it's answered. The list of other questions, headed in red 'Is one of these your question?' is offering questions and answers which might be helpful to you. Under this list is the heading, 'No? Post your question to the community!'. Beneath this is a pane which will contain the question you've entered. You can click on 'Submit Question', and then your question will be posted on WikiAnswers and you will be notified if the question is answered, or altered in some way. Or you can change the wording of your question and submit the new wording.
