A Block button
A block button to prevent other users from seeing your posts, going into your post history and continuously attacking you everywhere you go would be incredibly useful. The mute button stops you from seeing people's posts but it obviously doesn't stop others from seeing your posts and post history. People with ill will just goes through your post history and constantly attack you even after you mute them.
Cutting off interaction between two very hostile parties with a block button will save everyone a headache in the short and long term. It will also improve the article comments section tremendously.

they just ban you now, no appeal, unless you pay.

**** Yahoo. They won’t do this.
Just remove anything yahoo calls news

This is backwards. If you mute someone you cannot read any comments from that person. Calling thumbs downs "attacks" is puerile and if someone is abusing multiple accounts then blocking wouldn't make a difference anyways. If you're complaining that after signing out you find things you don't like to see then maybe you shouldn't sign out to find things you don't like to see.

A block button is better than a mute button..so I second that and please consider a block user option as it's a very valuable thing so stalkers, harassers can't follow you or see your posts or interact with your comments in any way. In addition, a report function should actually send the report to staff and staff should have the right to BAN users from the service if the situation warrants it. With some stronger tools Yahoo can be a better place for everyone.

Its time we just leave. why should we continue to use and support a structure (yahoo, etc.) that is intent on demolishing America. If no one listened..... they wouldn't even be a problem anymore. besides, the comment section in my opinion fuels the fire, but doesn't really change anyone's mind or the outcome. if you want change, just delete your yahoo account. protonmail.com for a substitute email and The Daily Wire for news (along with others). Goodbye Yahoo, Facebook etc. I wouldn't be surprised if this somehow was censored. It would be an honor.

Yahoo is a host, and we are guests in their privately owned venue. Like all good hosts, Yahoo needs to demand a certain level of politeness and decorum from an guest they chose to allow in. If some kind of block feature will accomplish that, so be it. The quality of angry and insulting comments posted right here are ample proof of why Yahoo needs to do this.

Disgusted in Democrats: you can have a block button only if we can have one on y'all. we all put our pants on one leg at a time...give this nonsense a rest already.

Only a fool would believe a comment without due diligence
Bring back the comment section as it was..
@Jason: You are correct. I called out a troll months ago. Ever since, each one of my post receive up to 25 thumbs down within minutes. One troll even uses my picture as his avatar. I had notified Yahoo eight times about this, nothing was done.
Shelley Nuss commented
If someone harasses you because of your comments, you should be able to block them. Harassment is something that happens multiple times, not once or twice. Your posted comments are there for other people to see and comment. That's supposed to be the idea. Just like on Facebook, you can block people. We don't need that decision to be made by YAHOO or any of it's affiliates.

We're doing our job people and keep hitting them straight in their pocketbook, give it time!!!
Even though its far more left leaning, start sending your news traffic and comments to Huff Post www.huffpost.com. and FOX News www.foxnews.com. Trump supporting Conservatives-Republicans-Independents maybe the minority at Huff Post, but at least there they let you speak your mind. (NOTE: CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT! DO NOT $ign into Huff Post with your Yahoo! login, deny Yahoo! receiving a kickback from Huff Post.)
Yahoo! has only 97 days left to figure it out for themselves.
According to the latest statistics provided by www.statista.com , www.qualtrics.com , and www.theacsi.org A.K.A The American Customer SATISFACTION Index (ACSI), Yahoo! has been steadily losing ~5% in clicks of it's customer user/visits base on Yahoo!'s front page and Yahoo! News EACH AND EVERY DAY since they stopped allowing user commenting.
5% Thursday + 5% Friday + 5% Sarurday + 5% Sunday +5% Monday + 5% Tuesday + 5% Wednesday (today's timestamp) ... + 5% Thursday? adds up to HUGE LOSES in revenue!!!
Maybe Yahoo! should rehire Marissa Meyer back just to turn things around. ;P
Yahoo is run by Democrat cry babys who will silence you because they are wetting their diapers.
We must push back against Verizon/Yahoo and their push to suppress free speach to all.
James Curie commented
Just ignore them I do that's why they're going to get rid of the comment section cuz everybody complains about other people if you don't like what somebody is saying again ignore them
Jeanne Roberts commented
This is liberal Yahoo's way of stopping independent thinkers from voicing their opinions and stacking the deck for Democrats to win their elections. This is how Hitler controlled the people by what they were told and what they were to believe. Yahoo can't handle the truth.
It also needs to block both ways I have been stalked by someone I blocked I cant see his comments but he can still post to mine that is WRONG fix it
Verizon / yahoo is biased. And Democrats tell lies, they removed comments because they can't handle competition bunch of cry babys.
Don't click on any yahoo links from home page hit them in the pocket book
