  2. I have been trying for over FOUR MONTHS to get help with YAHOO NEWS comments section.

    I am apparently banned from Yahoo News comment section. I believe the remediation algorithm has mistakenly done this. All posts and replies I make are removed in seconds with a comment that it violates policy. How does 'Hello' violate policy? No one can reply on Yahoo HELP and all I get are cut and paste emails telling me to review policies. I have done that many times. I subscribed to paid support and wasted that money to be told that they cannot help me and to contact OpenWeb. I have done this and not gotten a single reply from them…

  3. Allow replies to comments go directly to the comment. It used to do that but no more.

  4. I cannot reply to someone who has replied to my initial comment.

    I cannot reply to someone who has replied to my initial comment even though I receive an email with the reply and a blue button to reply specifically to that person. It takes me to the article but I cannot find my original comment or the reply by someone else. I used to do this.

    notifications on comments , but how to use link to see it? 80% of the time does nothing . 2/10 times it will take me to new window to see comment reply. why only 20% of the time does it function? go to view past comment, where is it? you have most of my comments listed. if i navigate to new story i commented on ,there it is. but not listed in comment history.

  6. Do you know that many of Yahoo features especially comments don't work in the Firefox browser

    Many features will not in the Firefox browser. Also when I get an email about a comment and try to reply to it, it is blocked because it doesn't go to a https website meaning your comments are probably vulnerable to hackers.

  8. Fix your Help site so it functions properly and actually provides help.

    I was notified my comment wasn't approved because I used a questionable word (claim). I was told to edit it or send for Comment Moderation. The site does not offer a way to send comments for moderation. Your Help site did not provide any answer or assistance. This is why people prefer Google.

  9. Difficulty finding and responding to responses

    I think it's a bug, but am not sure. I get notifications of responses to my comments in gmail. I click on the Reply to [so and so] button in the email and it takes me...somewhere, usually to the article, but never to where my comment is or where the response is. Am I doing something wrong or is the platfrom bogged down because of high usage.

  10. Fix Yahoo News notification feature

    When I click on a Yahoo News notification for my account, it doesn't take me to the comment so I can respond. It makes me scroll through lengthy threads in hopes I can locate the comment response. Very frustrating.

    Yahoo please improve your moderation no matter how much we edit our comments to meet your standards you still place a hold on them and they sit for days. The moment is lost the conversation is lost. We are trying but you are making it very difficult. We dont know what words offend you outside of the obvious curse words. everyday words are getting flagged.

  13. Bugs me

    The censoring is annoying especially when you can't figure out the reason/can't fix it but it's fun to add a gif & I can't do that anymore. The page is misaligned no matter what brower I use. The frames are all over the place. Even here there's something on top of where I'm typing. You guys have my email. Let me know what to do if anything. It's a hoot adding those things!

  14. Fix the reply to feature

    If somebody responds to my comment I get notified in Yahoo mail but when I click on reply I'm not taken to where I can reply. I'm taken to the beginning of the comment section.

  16. Fix commenting problem

    Whether through a link to a comment in my email, or by directly accessing a comment in the article comment feed, or by clicking the icon of the person replying to me, I can't reply to others, because the message won't stay up long enough to write a reply. It lasts about 3 seconds (3 letters worth) then reverts to the main comment feed for the article. FIX THIS PLEASE!

    Especially if clicking an emailed notification link. It should go directly to the person commenting on my comment, not to the commtent feed, where I'm then forced to dig through…

  17. Viewing comments on your comments...

    Not an idea, but an apparent bug...

    In the last couple of weeks, whenever I've received a notification that someone has replied to a comment, and I attempt to launch to that comment, Yahoo will MOMENTARILY display that exact thread (for ~ less than a second), then immediately jump to the very beginning of the thread.

    I.e., it just "flashes" the thread of messages/replies associated with the notification, but ill not stay on that thread.

    This happens in both Chrome and Firefox.

    I'm using Chrome Version 108.0.5359.126 (Official Build) (64-bit)
    and Firefox 108.0.2 (64-bit)

  20. Your software can't tell the difference between some ordinary punctuation symbols (an elipsis is one example) and an "emoji."

    Your software for handling comments can't tell the difference between some ordinary punctuation symbols (an emoji is one example) and an emoji. I worked in software for 40 years and I say your software is ****.
