  2. Yahoo articles state "story continues" and when you click on it to read the rest, it does not take you there

    STORY CONTINUES buttons do not work. You click on many of them and they take you nowhere !!

  3. You have an ad for a "genetic trsting" scam. The SSA is warning people about these scams and you are abetting a fraud by showing these ads!!

    Yahoo needs to vet their ads more closely. Tis ad for genetic testing is a scam to defraud medicare!!

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this. If you come across the ad again, can you right click on the ad and select “Copy link address”and then update your post with that URL. That will allow us to investigate this further.

    Regards,
    Homepage Support

  8. How about Real News at the top and enertainment **** at the bottom

    Instead of purely liberal or purely entertainment stuff, how about Yahoo putting the real news stories of the day at the top, instead of just plain ****

  9. Bad loading a result of too many video boxes your site becomes useless to post comments offer feedback . I think it is clear you are perfect

    Your spending the public's time with a bloated software load which is faulty to say the least . It spends more time loading onto your computer then does not finish the process because it is over worked as a result of a elaborate download. Google is used because they don't add all kinds of **** on the main page you decide what you want to see it is focused and Yahoo is not. It's not that i dislike your stories it is the complicated way it operates to load on a computer. I have a chromebook which is not as…

  11. Please use closed captioning, even if it's lousy auto-captioning

    Closed captioning on videos would be great, please. I know that the sources don't always provide the captioning, but when they're clips from TV news, they really should. IF GMA and local news channels want their clips to have global exposure on Yahoo!, then it should be part of their deal with you that they include the captions they were required to provide when they were on the air.

    There is software in existence now, too, that will do an auto-caption; it's generally a pretty poor caption compared to having a trained person do it, but it's better than nothing…

  13. Enough with the "Celebrity" Obsession

    Every single day it's nothing but article after article of "celebrities" in their **** bathing suits or underwear on vacation somewhere the average American can never go. Lately it's the over 50 crowd, Hurley, Crawford, Klum, Shields, et.al. Can't you do any better than this? It's gotten monotonous and rather sickening. Maybe start a browser for the brainless idiots who get off on this bs.

  14. Divers Spot Amelia Earhart's Lost Airplane; Faints (is a total lie in an advertising title)

    Please stop lying in topic titles just to get the click through

    Divers Spot Amelia Earhart's Lost Airplane; Faints (is a total lie in an advertising title)

    It was an interesting enough series of pages to see the pictures and brief descriptions of each, but 9 click thru's were needed, which is bad enough, but the complete lie in the topic title disgusted and angered me since the topic in the title did not and does not exist in the earth today, maybe some day but not now.

  15. Please stop refreshing page and going to top of page while I am scrolling down list of articles

    Site is very annoying when I am trying to read the list of articles and it suddenly refreshes and takes me back to the top of the list. So I must go back to stop and rinse and repeat. After a couple of times of this I give up and just stop reading this site. Please stop this refreshing.

  16. I want the site to be the site and the app to be the app. I should be able to look up stories and discussions on either.

    I want the site to stop redirecting me to the app when I click on past comments or stories or forcing to use my phone instead of password to log in. I shouldn't be forced to use both my phone and laptop instead of one or the other. The mobile app usually won't even let me see my entire conversation without backing out and hunting for the original comment. Let me use my password to log in and look up my comments on whichever device I am using at the time.

  17. How about when you include a story on your news feed that says "viral clip", how about actually including said viral clip.

  18. Political article posts

    In an election year I think it would be a good idea to limit the troll posts. I just counted 124 posts by one person today and it's not out of the norm to see 50 to 75 from one account. They argue any point and aid the division in this country. I'm all for freedom of speech but the trolls aren't contributing to an intelligent conversation here. Limit comments to 20 a day on political articles by accounts and start booting trolls. Sure, they can get more accounts and VPN's but you guys are smart. Start booting the trolls…

  19. Expand news sources


    1. The majority of the articles posted are not from major sources like WSJ, NYT, Wash Post, AP: why? Too many posts from HuffPo: why?

  20. Change back my Zodiac sign.

    I don't like or appreciate the change to my Zodiac sign on the homepage without my consent. I'm not a Leo. Just cause NASA declared a change to the chart doesn't change my sign at all. I'm still a Sagittarius. I would like my horoscope to reflect that again.
