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!

Bring Back The Comments!

Please fix this problem.
This is a good comment that you people trashed twice and it will help were the fire smoke is causing grief, You tell me if your rejecting it because your censorship software is no good and needs to be replaced, I you can't afford to fix it I will buy your software for you, Here is the comment you will not post,Quality micro fiber air filters for a lot of air born particulate's that cause respiratory stress, These filters are not expensive and you can order them home depot ,Loews and amazon, you just need your filter size and they might be the laminar brand in some areas of the country.

This is a factual comment and if you research you will find it to be so.
Ukraine blocked water supplies to Crimea before Russia went in last year. Also blew up power pylons supplying Crimea. Russia blew up the blockage to restore water supply to Crimea.Now this latest is probably a false flag by Ukraine. Why would Russia stop water to their own kind - Crimean and Kherson residents who voted to be with Russia?

Having a friendly exchange on comments....person called me sweetie...I responded "Billy - ohhhhhh are you flirting with me??? XOXOX" and my comment was blocked to be reviewed....for God's sake why does that have to be reviewed....when you let people say the foul, disgusting things to others, you block that?? Get real!! you need to fire all your moderators, they are either morons or biased OR both.
It would be nice to see you folk's respond to this ongoing problem that thousands of people have brought to your attention.
Fertile soil for growing crops is not a statement you need to censor, You people need to revamp your entire censoring processes or remove your comment section again.

Make sure it's actually bad before you delete a comment.
Karen King commented
Actually sit and read the comments instead of marking them for deletion just because it looks like something against the guidelines. Actually know that something is wrong before this. I've disputed a bunch because of this reason. Like getting one comment deleted just because I used a character's name in my comment.

THIS WAS MY COMMENT:
"It took me a bit to understand you were not addressing the celebration of mentally ill military men and women of which there are many. In fact, one in five adults in the U.S. live with a serious mental illness. But ...
"Deborah wrote "Not when it means pandering to the mentally ill ..." If you refer to differing gender/sexual orientation, your opinion is not supported by medical science. Bullying and denigration can lead to mental illness for anyone."
I would appreciate an explanation as to why my Comment does not comply with community standards. Otherwise, I will not understand how to comply with the community standards in the future.

If a word or euphemism is used in the article that you are hosting then it shouldn't run afoul of the community guidelines to quote that part of the article in the comment section. The current policy is laughable in that context.

Quit being fascist and censoring non profanity comments would be nice
Donald Allen Glenn commented
How about you quit trying tio divide people with your inept reporting and censoring of comments for NO VALID REASON? I recently made a comment that contained NO foul language, did not target anyone, and had NO hate speech. It was deleted because it violated company policy. And NO specifics were given! yet the next story down was titled Far-Right nutters, yet this was perfectly fine. You are nothing but a flaming bunch of leftist hypocrites. Your algorithms are completely wack and need to be discarded like molded food. In short get your act together!
John Q. Public commented
Have you just thought of not being a jerk?
Please update your algorithm's that censor your comment section. It is stopping normal everyday words that you yourselves use.
J.D. DeShaies commented
U suck and I will find a replacement.
Please update your censoring away from common everyday words that are not vulgar or violent, and stop censoring words used in your articles

When I post comments to news articles they are routinely being rejected even though the comments are general, innocous, non offensive, non disparaging, not using particular derogatory or other offensive words, etc. And comments of others to the same news articles are allowed to be posted that should have been rejected based on the Community Standards being used to reject my comments. It is apparent that the Community Standards are not being applied equally and equitably across the board to all commentators and their comments. And also would appear that commentators are being singled out and all their comments being rejected regardless of content. Either apply the Standards fairly, equally and equitably to all commenters and comments or turn off comments to all news, stories, etc.

I attempted to post a list of studies linking gas stoves and or nitrogen-dioxide to childhood asthma and these were summarily rejected by your algorithm. As far as I can tell these were within your community guidelines. Improve your computer routine as it is arbitrary, not rational,
and perhaps provide an avenue for commentators to challenge capricious censorship.
