I believe you still have comments but some people are blocked. I was reading the article about airline delays & cancellations & there was a comment section. So I tried to post a comment & was instructed to sign in & when I did & went back to comment the comment section was mysteriously suspended. More like I was suspended.

It was important at one time, but it isn't anymore. Yahoo punishes everybody for the mistakes of a few individuals. I don't plan to use the comments' section anymore. There is more to life than this. I would suggest eradicating the comments' section because you are too sensitive to some remarks by those few. Personally, I am well-educated with two degrees and find your policies puzzling. It seems like a few have ruined it for the others. It is what it is . Have a nice week !

Apparently, I am no longer allowed to comment, as I can never see the comments section when I'm signed into my account. Last time I commented, sometime last year (2021), I used the word "asinine" and got an email stating that the comment was not acceptable. Clearly, Yahoo has IGNORANT people in charge of reviewing comments, as the word "asinine" is NOT a cuss word or crude in any way, shape or form. Meanwhile, I read articles with the f-word, the c-word and all manner of filth. I also see that there are many nasty, RACIST comments that DO get posted. Yahoo is run by ignorant hypocrites.

Many articles say in them please leave your thoughts in the comments below ( https://news.yahoo.com/divorced-people-wish-knew-got-234603870.html )
But then fail to have any comments section.....

One of the main reasons I read Yahoo news. Loved reading "comments" and commenting. Too bad, Yahoo made a poor decision to eliminate "comments".

For over two years now Yahoo has made this comment at the end of every article :
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..... It is about time to renew the very popular feature of the "comment section"

Why cant i comment on the clinton-nelson mandela article: what did clinton eat on epsteins island?

You need to allow for comments. It's great that Yahoo News gets their say, but response is needed and necessary, because what is reported is often either not entirely true and is highly biased. And when there is no alternate view, then people are left to suppose that what is reported is fact. You have no right to curtail free speech. You get your free speech, you need to allow others their free speech

Agreed. Yahoo! quit trying to protect the leftist propaganda regime.

Calling a man who pretends to be a woman a man does not incite hatred or violence. Let sanity flow on your comment sections. Rachel Dolezal was not black either.
Matt Shearer commented
Regardless they censor the comments which is ridiculous
Yvette Smith commented
It seems like Yahoo chooses what can be commented on and what cannot. That is wrong. If you are going to limit comments then limit them for all articles.
Dana Reagan commented
I find the lack of a comments section under certain news stories which are apparently considered too political or otherwise divisive to be arbitrary and more than a bit cowardly. I am aware that Yahoo is a private company, but it still seems like a form of censorship. It seems all the more absurd when the company seems to appreciate the advertising dollars and clicks generated around stories with a level of excitement, shock, impact, or even simply divisiveness. It's odd that some political stories have no comment section, but other stories considered just as prone to generate conflict do. Where is the logic here? What is more of a concern to me is that Yahoo seems to do little to limit of enact consequences regarding commentary which can gat rather vile, or even push into hate speech. A little courage an responsibility is in order. Either that or stop trying to get our attention with your news segments.

Bring back comments. Quite being the thought police. you claim free speech then let your readers have it also. Quit being a Trumpette
Martin Ott commented
The killing of the LA girl by a typical black criminal is beyond shocking. Black crime needs to be addressed and the police that have to go out and face the animals need protection. We need to comment and address this blight on America.
CHARLES SOBOLESKI commented
Yahoo continues to suppress the voice of the people. They are afraid of the peoples opinion.They continue to print their biased opinions without being held accountable. Yahoo doesn't report the news ,they try to shape it to fit their political agenda. Isn't that what happened in Hitlers Germany???

This is how "we", the users of yahoo, the consumers - the customers. The people who give yahoo hundreds of millions want to reach. I am hopeful one day someone will decide to put us first. To value our opinion and speech. Comments are how we reccomend great ideas, improve on current things, change politics, warn people of fraudulent or harmful product and 100,000 other things. The problem. We are open and honest. We might be critical of government Yahoo yields to & Fears (NSA/Yahoo - Unconstitutional Surveillance) proves Yahoo is afraid of the government. The corporate news must also control their own agendas and that of the government. Allowing us to talk about these things is scary for government and yahoo is unwilling to support us. Then there is yahoos corporate interests. We might be honest and critique a product, an advertiser and their feelings would be hurt. We are a far second here. The thought yahoo even values or our opinions is absurd. I no longer use any yahoo product and limit my footprint the best I can. Until yahoo actually values their real customers, GIVE US A VOICE, an ability to communicate with other humans, you should remove yahoo from your lives too. It is just such a strange thing. We are the customers and yahoo is afraid of us talking with, interacting with or engaging each other. What a nasty world we live in when corporations genuinely control who we speak with and when. anything legal to harm yahoo or any one associated with the company should be done. It is not just them. Youtube is doing the same. If anything the power of speech is demonstrated. Corporations who control us must control our ability to interact/share information.
