Bring back the comments and allow freedom of speech
I've went to a few forum sites to see the discussions about Yahoo suspending commenting on it's news articles and, basically, if you don't bring it back you are going to lose your entire customer base and your company will end up bankrupt. Really, the comments are all people care about.

bring back the comments as you have not been the same site since taking them away

Yahoo hasn't been the same. I am not sure why the rush to make so many changes or the need to make so many changes for things that were clearly working. Surely they must be able to look at the analytics and see the people's preferences. Taking out the comment section was one of the worst things Yahoo did. Yahoo finance used to be pretty good too when they had tools in there to help analyze stocks. Then they changed that too for the worse. This is why Yahoo is second fiddle to other web sites.
readers like yahoo news and want to be part of the discussion of your news and part of he discussion of other peoples ideas that your stories generate
