  1. You've done it again. You have merged my comment with one you INCORRECTLY closed because the "show less" option STILL DOES NOT WORK!!!

    This is truly ridiculous. I am trying to communicate to you that a feature of your website does not work as intended and the only response you have is to merge my comments with an already closed thread. Don't close my comments. Don't merge this with an old, already closed thread. FIX THE SHOW LESS OPTION!!!

    Hi,

    Our Engineering team is looking into this. If you could let us know what about the “show less” option isn’t working we would appreciate it. Please provide specific publishers if possible.

  2. FIX YOUR COMMENT CENSOR ALGORITHM

    Whatever bots you use to censor comments are broken. I've been trying to post a benign comment that doesn't attack anyone, doesn't use any profanity, and doesn't use any of the other stupid words you Yahoos have deigned to censor (because you're retards, one of the words you censor). Yet you will not post it, you keep deleting the comment. It is incredibly frustrating and one of the reasons why I'm about to drop Yahoo and never visit your sites again.

  3. Dangerous JS code on main Yahoo page

    On main Yahoo page you have JS code like:
    window.onload = function() {
    var astroBodyText = document.getElementById("astroBodyText");
    ...
    while (astroBodyText.scrollHeight > astroBodyText.offsetHeight) {
    }
    }

    For some systems (depends on installed fonts) condition:
    astroBodyText.scrollHeight > astroBodyText.offsetHeight

    always true, that's why your main page is stucking :-(
    Please fix this condition or add condition for exit from loop.

    Dear Mr. Knowles: ERROR - a few paragraphs from the bottom of the article, you write,"205 metric tons..." AFTER "205' should be 'million' or 'billion' or...? if you get this Mr. Knowles, Thanks for a great article!

  5. I posted 2 videos of whites attacked for being white, so Yahoo removed my ability to post video links.

    Yahoo is constantly posting videos of white people using racial slurs or calling the police needlessly. Yahoo brings us a new story about one or the other every week, but never a single story about a white person attacked for their skin color. I posted two videos that happened this past October: one of Chris Bilcik getting his eye sliced in a pizza parlor for being white and one of Andy Rosenmayer getting his head bashed in with a bowling ball for being white. Both had happened that month and yahoo never reported about either story. In an extra attempt…

  7. Turn off 'Use Yahoo App' on Tablet

    Not sure you did this intentionally, but your 'pop-up' add to install the yahoo app on my tablet renders most of your news articles unreadable and there is no way to close it except abandon the page.

    If this was intentional, what a train wreck. Imagine all the advertisers that paid for impressions that are not seen, but that look like they are seen. Imagine the irate users. The poor customer experience. I cannot see supporting a company that would do that to its users.

    If it was an accident, wow... what a mess up. It works 'OK' on Android…

  9. Comments section

    I don't seem to be getting alerts when someone has replied on my comments on a story. I also can click on show replies and nothing shows up just a comment box and I don't need to comment on my own comment. Yahoo used to be really good and great working. But so many problems exist now, I don't get this on any other homepage of any kind.

  12. Understand we changed the calendar about six month ago...

    Are you pencil-neck Millennials drinking again on the job today? You posted "College Football Top 27" (it should be 25) FOR 2018! I'd love 10 minutes alone with any of you in my back yard with no firearms or tools. Just my bare hands.

  15. Can not report comments in Microsoft Edge.

    Reporting inappropriate comments does not work in Microsoft Edge (Version 42.17134.1.0). I have no plug-ins installed and the function does work in Chrome.

  16. "Read more" links

    90 % of your "Read more" links are broken and take you to an old yahoo page, about baby charlie. I really enjoy scrolling through the page and reading different articles, which that link messes up for me. Please fix ASAP!
