Here is what I posted on Facebook.
This is the notice at the bottom of Yahoo News political articles.
"Our goal is to create a safe and engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions. In order to improve our community experience, we are temporarily suspending article commenting."
Isn't that just full of all the right words to make readers ignore the blatant contradictions here? Ok, to accomplish their goal of creating a "safe and engaging place for users to connect", they disconnect the ability to engage, because to the left, other ideas and opinions are not safe. They are dangerous. Do they really think that this is "improving community experience"? Do they really think that the freedom to speak our minds can be squelched?
I can almost promise that it won't be temporary.
I can completely promise that we will not shut up and go away.
Yahoo News is fired.

B. Frankin commented
Trump is a fascist wannabe, who is just too incompetent to bring his dictatorship off. Get off of the fence, Yahoo, and declare your loyalty to the US Constitution!

Someone need to comment on your news articles- you're damaging your image, in other words, you are too damn bias. Did any of your so called Reporters or repeaters of bullshit investigate any of the stories you present. Stop being bias and give us facts.
Eric Ford commented
The Yahoo News articles are not worth reading without having a comment section attached to each article.
Harry K commented
Yahoo states their goal is "to create an engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions". This is stated at the end of articles stating the comments have been discontinued. What a lie. BRING BACK THE COMMENTS SECTION!
Richard Curry commented
Very Trumpian of you to still not allow comments. National dialog is necessary in these times.
Yahoo turning off comments is CENSORSHIP !!! Shame on yahoo for bowing down to the power that should not be !! SHAME !!

Bring back the comments, we love to voice our opinion. Especially the employees from pilot and flying j got off with no charges or penalties. It figures that they would get off because it's a big corporation they're all over Tennessee and they have money and they won't be surprised if they didn't pay off the judicial system the judges that's what happens I believe here our judicial system is very corrupt they don't give you a free trial they don't do anything by the federal guidelines. They commit federal crimes by not obeying our constitution and violating civil rights but you never hear about that you never hear that get in the news how they swindle their way and taking children removing them from their homes when the parents don't know nothing what's going on and they refuse to give your their children back even when they were cleared and they hold up the court system for years and years so they can keep collecting Federal money it's disgusting it's inhumane how they treat these children that doesn't know what's going on that want their parents and this department of children Services are snakes in the grass they lie to get the money from either social security from the welfare department or whatever the millions of dollars that goes into this racketeering organization called child protective services and Foster Care they make more money and get more things than you would not believe they're not a wholesome have any family morals or any obligations to take care of any children they're only out for one thing and that's money

Verizon/Yahoo make their money threw clicks on their content , so now that the did away with comments I will not click on any of their articles and deprive them of a pay check . Anyone reading this should do the same .
E Nelson commented
this was done because of the up coming election..... It is part of the Silicon Valleys push to stop people from expressing their own opinion....It"s the same on all the mass media run by the leftest..... I will be dumping Yahoo as they are nothing but left wing socialist
TRACY HEBERT commented
I do even read yahoo now because of this .NOT INTERESTED IN BEING SILENCED .
Larry Grine commented
Very disappointed Yahoo has chosen to suspend it's comment. Especially considering the biased articles Yahoo chooses to publish on it's site. No balance in perspectives. I find articles on both sides worth reading to understand everyone's views; regardless if I agree or not. To be news worthy a balanced view should be presented. Considering Yahoo primarily wants to publish articles that are far reaching, and very left of center, it would be worthy and appropriate to have a comment section to balance the article to some degree.
Patrick Mattingly commented
The public needs to openly be allow to comment on what the News Media is putting in front of us! Whether Yahoo likes of dislikes what is said leads on to believe that they are a Far Left News Commentary!!!

Who's afraid of trolls? Ya-WHOOOOO! Seriously, If you knew who your customer base really is, you would probably change things back. Ya see.. reading news and commenting in a forum based format is something older internet users do... Today's generation is all about live streaming, youtube channels, and social platforms. Ever see someone reach for their phone to film something for Yahoo (NO!).. this is where we come to half read articles, then troll each other accordingly.. that is what pays your bills! If you take our fun away, why even bother coming here? We already know what you're gonna write about, I mean after four years of reading that Trump is worse than the antichrist.. we get it, you dont like him! We dont care, its not why we visit this site.
Andrew Eddy commented
Yes, you have a point. I find that I'm paying for an e-mail service package and the server has been allowed to deny a portion of that paid service on my end and it appears to enable a denial of freedom of speech and the press. While I enjoy Yahoo News, Yahoo should reconsider it on and off again comment policy and/or it should be left up to a government authorized telecommunications panel to review and arbitrate.
Kevin Hendren commented
Either shut down your web site or grow a pair and open up the comment section again!!!! Guessing you don't know much about our American history, but her in the good old America we have the power of FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!! What gives you the right to stop our God given right... Man up and open up! Or shut down we don't need you...
