Yahoo's quality is declining at a more rapid pace
Terrible is all I can say to explain the recent homepage change for mobile devices.
The quality of articles is absolutely horrendous. Content providers like hello giggles, huffpost, pop sugar I could go on and on are just completely devoid of decent, adult, rational content. Articles are seemingly written by and for 10-15 year olds.
Kudos to Yahoo employees who continue to get paid and have jobs while putting out such a low quality product. Seriously, no offense to them. I blame the bosses who either do not frequent the site and therefore do not know how terrible their product, in fact, actually is, or they know exactly how bad their product is and for whatever reason just don't give a hoot.
It takes a certain kind of magic for a product to get worse over time. Yahoo's website exemplifies this magic.
If there is such an actual thing as "fake news" Yahoo certainly is one of the primary drivers of the phenomenon.
If any of these points are not patently clear from a single viewing of Yahoo's homepage, and such a person is in the content distribution business, that person really needs to consider a new career. Except if you're low on the totem pole. If you're low on the totem pole at Yahoo, the silver lining to you slowly destroying what good remains of the internet is that at least you're getting a paycheck and supporting yourself or your family.

The article title that contains the text: Donald "The Orange Racist" Trump" is highly offense to me. Please refrain from showing disrespect to the Commander In Chief.

PopSugar and Hello Giggles are just completely idiotic nonsense. Please dispose of those completely. HuffPost is obviously left leaning. Please use some content providers that will use a more balanced approach to reporting. As a moderate independent, it would be nice to have a provider report FACTS and allow me to come to my own conclusions.

Improve the weather page accuracy. I've seen the temperatures listed on Yahoo, in error by as much as 40 degrees. The page reports that values are sourced from The Weather Channel, but the numbers displayed on the Yahoo weather page do not match what The Weather Chanel reports. For example, today (6/5/2017@4PM) the Yahoo page reported the local temperature for 92592 zip code as 106 degrees F. But the actual temperature (confirmed by multiple weather sources) showed the temperature as 76.
Why is there a picture of a fetus in its amniotic sac on the FRONT PAGE of Yahoo? Why is there an ad showing the inside of a human body on the FRONT PAGE? I understand you guys want clicks, but this is insane. You all have no sense of decency.
