Hi, please share your suggestions, we are listening

Please allow us to filter the homepage news. I love Yahoo but the liberal news propaganda is disgusting.

I just want to be able to block content from appearing on my homepage. It's really annoying to have to see such obvious propaganda and hate news in order to get to my email. I used to love reading the days events but you've alienated me and I get my news and entertainment from other sources now. Provide ALL content and let your customers set filters for what they want to see. Please be fair.

    I am a long time user of Yahoo homepage and was a Yahoo webhosting member,Please for the love of God, allow users to be able to block content from certain news sources. More and more, Yahoo is alienating my family and myself with the constant trash on our homepage. Is it really worth accepting sponsorship from news groups when it is pushing away your users? We now avoid viewing your news articles. Yahoo could easily update their system to allow users to block content for any news source it finds offensive. I hope Yahoo heeds the calls of its users before we all leave for other search engines where we wont be alienated every time we log in. Thank you

    Your "manage publishers" that suggest that I will see less of a particular publisher is a farce! Beside the normal every day removing of Huff Post multiple times but I counted just Huff Post and on average every day I see 10 articles from Huff Post....even after you at Yahoo say that I will see less! Just another piece of **** to make users believe you are trying to fix the problem! I would be tempted to sue Yahoo for false advertising! What do you think, you idiots?

    please make sure when I click to no longer see articles about sports that you stop the feeds; I will go through the entire feed, click every sports article to 'see less' from this publisher, click refresh and the 1st, 3rd and more are sports articles. If I click to see less, then shut off the sports feed!!

    Instead of wasting my **** time clicking "see less from Marie Claire, Footwear for Chicks, Girl stuff weekly, Popsugar, etc" have people fill out brief questionnaire to personalize news feed (and of course target ads for age, gender, interests) How hard is that and why hasn't anyone thought of it yet? Seriously

    Stop publishing fluff, or allow the possibility of filtering celebrity-driven glitter. Yahoo has been my home page for many years, but I'm looking around for others. Your political coverage is anything but even handed. Perhaps you know your market, and it's just not for me.

    The Yahoo "tech support staff" does nothing. I keep trying to rid myself of the stench from HuffPo and WaPo (really stupid acronyms, by the way) and I keep seeing more of this garbage and other celebrity-driven drivel. Yahoo has 30 days to stop annoying the **** out of me before I leave.

    your homepage show less option is a TOTAL JOKE - your biased reporting is rampant all over home page - quit AOL , now only use Yahoo for occasional email - WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO CONSUMERS AT ALL ???????????????????????

  • schutzen-jager commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I quit AOL after 20 + years as paid subscriber due to biased , inaccurate , + amateur leftist reporting - Yahoo is going in the same direction - time to quit Yahoo also -

  • Chris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I agree, almost all of the articles on my news feed I have marked as "see less from ..." and that is all I see on my news feed. I am tired of the left-wing propaganda and celebrity articles.

    For those not desperate enough to try the script, remember to visit your favorite news sites and click on the "top stories" section to find out what's going on. Huffington Post is listed by Alexa as one of the top most visited news sites, but I suspect most of those visits are by Yahoo's staff. Avoid clicking on any stories by Huff Post and never, EVER click on any ads offered by Yahoo at all (on ANY story) until they grow up and overcome their bigotry.

    An interesting discovery: apparently somebody has created an open source script and posted it online for free download that removes Huffington Post from a Yahoo news stream. They also claim the newest version removes other junk news like Vox and Thinkprogress from a Yahoo news stream. I tried it and it didn't work on my computer, but my browser is old, so it might work on yours if you are feeling desperate. Yahoo has known how hated Huff Post is by the bulk of their readers for over a decade, so I doubt they will do anything about it anytime soon. I don't think this script will harm your computer since mine still seems fine.

    There are way to many liberal leaning articles on the Yahoo home page. Would like to see more conservative articles.

  • Jim Osborne commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I've just about reached the conclusion that I should stop visiting Yahoo.com for news stories. There is an obvious heavy bias in the content, and far too few stories that I find relevant to me. I miss when Yahoo allowed me to filter content to my liking.

  • Joann Chateau commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Beware of being brain-washed... Linking the two ideas "Liberals" and "hate news" is illogical -- and the likely result of consuming too much propaganda disguised as news.

  • reuben kearney commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I really miss how it was possible to no longer see news items that I didn't want to see. I really couldn't possibly care any less about anything the English royal family does or if celebrities ******. I miss being able to not have any of that stupid ******** show up in my news feed. You really need to bring that back.

    You need to allow customization of the news feed shown on the homepage. No one should be spammed with all Hollywood tabloid ********.
