Hi, please share your suggestions, we are listening

I would like to see a UI feature that allows me to block or ignore Yahoo News articles that require subscriptions or disabling ad blockers.

This pertains to third party articles with ads not promoted through Yahoo.

    Yes, SO sick of clicking on an article to only have to click on a link, to be told I have met my views and need to pay. Either pay for your own writers or don't post the article.

    Mercury News has a limit on the number of articles you can look at in 30 days without a subscription.
    It seems to be independent of ad blocker.

    It happens repeatedly along with Yahoo changing the homepage when trying to go back to where one started. Try to read an article, you get the request to either disable Ad Block or to subscribe in order to continue. When you then try to return to the home page, that article has disappeared and/or it has an entirely different page from where you started.

    Mercury News and Business Insider both prompt you for a subscription. Really guys, if you don't know this is happening then you are seriously ignorant of what's going on in YOUR product!

    Um.. search Google for another source, clear your cookies, use a different browser or pay for a higher standard of journalism. There ya go.. see how easy that is? No need for a big dollar sign either. There's this thing called a byline. Perhaps you learned about that in school, not. Bylines tell you who wrote the article and the source. Right at the very top of the article. Jeez... educate yourself please.

    The Washington Post. Request for "remove adblocker" or subscribe comes up on first article

    ESPN links with their "insider" requirement. These are a subscriber only feature. You can only view the first 2-3 lines.

    Dallas Morning News/Sportsday - you can go 2-3 articles before you get the "requires subscription" pop up

    why not give us more personal preference controls period? With a little work, you should be able to tie content sources to settings a user controls. Sure you might have to lay off some people who customize and force feed us the news you want us to see.. but in the long run wouldn't that just save you money and make your user base happier?

    Come on with the **** news subscribe to finish reading this story stuff . Get rid of them or are you getting kick backs from them , the news that you have to subscribe & pay for gets more promos than anything else . It is also free on other sites & better reported . In stead or searching to finish a story we could just quit using yahoo. What do you have that is better than google or Firefox anyway

    Quit peddling news paper subscription , if it is not a full news article that can be read with out subscribing & paying quit posting it . Your browser is starting to suck . There are others sites we can use & read to get news . How big are your lick backs from Miami & the Boston Globe ? Enough

    Delete articles we wish not to see, over and over again! I get it, some woman needs to prove her woman-ness by ****** feeding in public. Don’t care! Don’t care about the amount of anti Trump on yahoo either. Tired of the **********’s...and their well paid drama. Don’t care!

    Tired of seeing interest in one of your articles and finding our I have to pay to finish...Miami Herald and Washington Post and others are making me wary of yahoo....please quit featuring articles from them or at least put a big dollar sign on the top of the teaser so we can skip it...
