Yahoo has become the slum of the internet. Can't keep your web page open and unattended -I'll come back to "fake flashplayer" virus warnings
It is constant. I thought the first time it might be me, but it's not. Thank God for Norton and Malwarebytes, but it didn't used to be this way.

You keep asking for comments, but don't seem to do anything. At LEAST 30% of your pages are bugged. So far none of them have been actually damaging, BUT, every stinking one of them takes control and downloads between 40 and 60 pieces of spyware. Fortunately, I run Malwarebytes and a quick-scan with Antispyware finds them so they can be deleted. I really like being able to debate the news, but this is NO WAY to run a page you want people to use as a home page!

I just stopped back to see if things have gotten better at "Yahoo!" But it looks about the same as when I left a month ago. I HAD used Yahoo! as my homepage for YEARS, but due to a couple issues I changed it over a month ago. My complaints are: FREQUENT "bogus" virus warning just when scrolling down the page (I am certain these full page red screens with artificial voice warning is coming from the side "ads". I know they are fake, but they are ANNOYING, you have to close your browser to get rid of them. Lousy news(?) stories, one source of which is frequently that stalwart, trusted, giant of the "fifth estate"... Popsugar.com!?! If not popsuge, then it is some other purveyor of garbage "news". And lastly, even though I am left leaning and have ZERO respect for the current resident at 1600 Penn. Ave, can we get a little more balancedin the reporting or at least your choice of sources. I am NOT asking you to stop reporting all the D.C. buffoonery, but get the FACTS and verify your sources and present the counter point as well. I am going back to Reuters.com now (after only 5 minutes and ANOTHER fake virus screen pop-up (yeah, I had to close my browser and then comeback to leave this diatribe. Good luck in TRYING to be a going business concern, oh how the mighty have fallen. Buh-bye.
