All too human, Google Answers has now expired. The Answering service, which approximated a paid reference librarian service, never answered the question “Why should I get my answers here and pay when I can ask Yahoo! Answers for free?”

Keep Google Answers Alive
The Google Answers service has helped many people during its four and a half years of existence, and it continues to do so. Researchers and unpaid commenters formed a community which should not be discarded lightly. Many repeat users were able to easily find answers to difficult questions thanks to the service. Furthermore, Google Answers proved that a living could be made working on the Internet alone, as many researchers worked on the site as their sole source of income.
We, the undersigned, believe that Google should continue to provide this valuable community service to the Internet.
