  1. Get rid of the feed to Facebook. I don't know what is going on with Yahoo, but I am no Facebook person.

    Yahoo has been a mess since this Facebook feed. In fact, in the last week or so the site has been full of errors and malady's Facebook is not life in general and Yahoo is making it that, joined at the hip it seems. The news pages and everything else with Yahoo since they did the mail change is a mess. Sorry Yahoo, but nothing is right.

    Feed the **** Gerbil. He is slowing down on the treadmill that posers your site.

    I am tired of getting the comment...."We are having trouble connecting right now. Please try again later."

  4. Your new font choice for article titles is horrid - looks defective. CHANGE! PLZ CAP 1st letters in title words-IE: Dude Wins Contest Medal

    Yahoo needs to change thew title font. The one you now use is awful. Absolutely strange on why Yahoo would use such a mess. cannot read words clearly. Looks like you have a problem with your site the way the letters are deformed. Please use CAPPED letters for the first letter in article title words. I have no idea why many news sources do not. Looks like just another sentence within the article otherwise.

  5. Bias filtering

    It appears that Yahoo's algorithms for determining who is allowed to post comments on news stories is set to filter out those with a more progressive bias. I discovered this when I attempted to post using my primary email sign in, and after several posts was unable to sign in anymore. I subsequently created a secondary account and was once again able to post comments several times, but now find that every time I "sign in" the comments module refuses to recognize my account. In discussion with others I have found that I am not the only one to experience…

  11. Same articles appearing at the top of the feeds.

    The same five articles are always at the top of the list in each section, often for weeks or months at a time. Why do I see articles from early December at the top of the US feed in mid January?

  12. I was commenting, and the page suddenly reloaded, destroying my comment.

    I was commenting on a Yahoo News page, and suddenly the page reloaded, destroying what I had typed. I did nothing that would cause a reload.

    I think the ad somehow reloaded the page.

  13. "see less like this" is like the thermostat in the office that's not connected to anything so you think you have some say on what goes on

    it does nothing. maybe it cuts out 10% of bieber stories, but no one can tell. and don't you dare direct me to a help page teaching me how to click an X. it just does not work and you will be further proving you don't care enugh to read these. just give us an actual, working percetage wheel, as in, "i want to see 1 bieber story out of every 50 available (just in case he dies)"

    Don't block story with ads that overlap and can't be moved or removed.

  16. Why has a French story been at the top of the U.S. news

    Why has the story "Why a taxi driver protest turned violent in Paris" been listed as one of the top 10 U.S. stories since 1/9/2014? Currently the story is the third from the top on my U.S. feed.

    In fact, the top 5 stories are all from at least 1 week ago. It is supposed to be NEWS, not OLDS.

  20. The descriptive text that appears below your news photos cannot be selected and copied

    The descriptive text that appears below your news photos cannot be selected and copied. The actual photos can be saved-as but the photo's descriptive text cannot be selected and copied for later pasting, (^A ^C ^V)

    As an example see the photos at the below link. You cannot select, copy and paste the description text directly below the photograph.
