Rejecting of comments
Telling someone that their comment was meanspirited, should have not resulted with a rejection to post. There are some insulting and demeaning comments that definitely should have been rejected, but weren't. But, Hey Yahoo, it's your platform! I'm out!
I think it's cool folks can say anything they want about Israel and Jewish people but that the word Nazi leads to a block. Fun!

I attempted to post the following comment to a story about the Congressional dress code: "A ****** dress code is a small thing compared to the Republicans' ****** moral code". To my astonishment, it triggered an approval requirement. Now I challenge you to identify anything in it that would not be appropriate for a "G"-rated movie. That is not the first such case in my experience, but I would call it the worst.
How is the word Opium offensive, it is the name of a plant but you block it, why?

I just like to know if Yahoo moderates comments based on their own political *****
joseph gillooly commented
Why was this comment subject to moderation...what was objectionable: "Inflation at lowest level in years…most jobs created by any President within first 3 yrs of term…economy is humming along..passed an infrastructure bill that creates thousands of good paying jobs…has provided enough covid vaccine for anyone who wants it…has restored respect and confidence in America by our ally’s . I know this is all news to the MAGA world…but this record is the reason he beats the other guy again….sorry in this post. And please don't give me the robotic answer. I'd really like to know:"

Just more attempts at Yahoo censorship.

Your stories contain language that is deemed offensive in the forum? Please tell me how that is possible?

I see that Yahoo supports pedophilia. This is evident because when I used the word in a post, it was rejected because it might offend some people. As I understand it, pedophilia is still a crime. So by extension, yahoo supports crime. Please take a look at who it is in your organization that supports crime and criminal acts. Thanks- a very concerned citizen.
mike since you just showed how miss informed you are it's the Republicans that want to cut the spending on the Ukraine and Democrats want it increased, if you can't keep up do more reading than commenting

Thank you for removing the "comments section".. Real news should be the main objective, not misinformation from the readers.
Pauline Rosenberg commented
The word Ziotrash should not be allowed in comments about Israel. It certainly does not fit your guidelines. The poster "Santa" uses this label ALL the time. I suspect if I used the term Pali-trash, it would be spotted.
Your articles on Israel are a place where anti-Semites feel liberated to post their odious, hateful views. I would suggest you not facilitate this open expression of prejudice and hatred.
Thia address is written in a news article you posted, To check your policies you only enforce on your readers I pasted it and tried to post it and your censorship rejected it, this is the address, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_9CRSsl9cI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQBV1_OAn30, Ether reject all of them or except them all, that or stop saying you treat everyone fairly.

Political comments properly posted should not be rejected.
