Are all Answers sections struggling to survive -
Interesting to see that Facebook retired its “answers” in late 2012.
This is how LinkedIn should have dealt with their "Answers" forum.

Improved Answer Ranking: Follow-Up
To say that I have had a contentious relationship with former Facebook chief technology officer Adam D’Angelo’s three-year-old startup Quora would be an understatement. I've had my reasons for disagreeing with some of its policies relating to the content. Don’t get me wrong -- I loved Quora before being turned off but now I use it like the “80 percent” consumers and rarely contribute to the site.
Just thought I’d give Quora a thumbs up.
I like how it is simple, intuitive and amendable in the same way as wikipedia.
