  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. Stop with the "Yahoo is better with the app" pop up that freezes my screen!!! I ALREADY HAVE THE APP, for starters!!

    What GENIUS deployed this half page pop up add for your terrible news app that FREEZES THE WHOLE **** PAGE???? You can't kill it, if you refresh it goes back to the main page, it's a complete dead end!! What BRILLIANT PERSON came up with that???
    I'm done with you stupid people.

    Hi Josh,

    Thank you for reporting this. Would you be able to give us some additional details to help us investigate and resolve this issue:
    1. Does this happen on a desktop or mobile device?
    2. What browser are you using?
    3. Is the ad for the Yahoo News app or the Yahoo App?

  3. Audio ads that are hidden, forcing me to listen to them does one thing – pisses me off

    Apparently, everyone's feedback hasn't knocked any sense into your heads yet. Hopefully, they keep letting you and your advertisers know that the audio ads SUCK. Not only do they play automatically but you hide them somewhere on the page. I either have to listen to the stupid ad or go find it to turn it off – both are distracting and annoying when all I want to do is read an article. Pissing people off isn't the way to sell shit. It's a well known fact, online advertising has an extremely low ROI because people HATE the ads and ignore…

    Hi,

    Our Engineering team is investigating this. In the future if this happens can you please update this ticket with more information including who the audio ad was for, where it was on the page, etc.

  4. 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.

  5. Please check the notifications. They are not clearing for some reason. I know this has been listed before but is not fixed. Really bad.

    Notifications on home page do not delete nor is the count changed. This has been listed before and responded too; however, it is not fixed. As the articles age they become so out of date.

  6. 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 !!
