FIX YOUR COMMENT CENSOR ALGORITHM
Whatever bots you use to censor comments are broken. I've been trying to post a benign comment that doesn't attack anyone, doesn't use any profanity, and doesn't use any of the other stupid words you Yahoos have deigned to censor (because you're retards, one of the words you censor). Yet you will not post it, you keep deleting the comment. It is incredibly frustrating and one of the reasons why I'm about to drop Yahoo and never visit your sites again.

After posting a verifiable list of convicted politicians that relates to the story appearing on Yahoo on 9/18/19 by USA Today with the headline: "Child **** found on phone of Pennsylvania state Sen. Mike Folmer, prosecutor says"
the comment received over 2,000 thumbs-up and over 300 thumbs-down and generated well over 400 replies
Yahoo removed the post and the replied comments even though the article remains.
The following is the content of my post and my question is WHY was it removed? some perceived 'violation'? or just Yahoo's bias and need to manipulate comments for some other purpose?

Really.. How sad a sick are you people? All communist who censor comments need to die. You obviously do not understand freedom and free speech. Only a com organization would censor comments. DIE DIE DIE immediately you communist losers.
You won't let people use words that are in the articles... but you'll let people have a gazillion accounts... or copy and paste the whole article in the comment section. You people are *********.

If I am Blackballed, I should know why. I am critical of the president, at times. However, I use decorum, and no profanity. I never take "Pot Shots" for no reason. I am socially kind and do not have any agenda.
I would like to understand why my "postings" are not being posted? Thanks!***
WHAT THE **** YAHOO??????????????? YOU censor me for typing the words 'gluteus maximus (the official medical terminology), yet YOU can post a article on the FRONT PAGE OF YOUR STUPID WEBSITE that says '************' - GO **** YOURSELF AND YOUR DOUBLE STANDARDS.
Yahoo should pull up stakes in America and move to Communist China
******** YAHOO YOU ******* *****. STOP CENSORING MY COMMENTS.
Yahoo, needs to censor their own articles if they are going to censor commentors. Some of the words used in their articles are ones we'd be censored for and yes, stop censoring Maine C**n for cats. That is a breed of cat.
******** Yahoo. Still no response from you fuckheads on any of this. Still no clarification of why comments are censored that don't violate terms of service. ******** and your entire company, Yahoo. I hope Trump throws you and Google and Facebook all to the Anti-Trust wolves.
William Brewer commented
Why do you feel it necessary to silence Conservative voices?
I don't use profanity, attack people personally, but I will point out what I view as faults in the authors logic... and the comments are deleted.
You give the concept of Free Speech a bad name.

for some reason you bots ddick cheney gets a $#%^! fix it. do you think DickCheney likes his first name swear word.
I attempted to post the first and last name of a NY Yankees catcher in a conversation during a game. Just his name, that was the entire post. Yahoo deleted it. If you have a problem with a person's given name, what can people post on the site? Rainbows? Unicorns? Ice cream? Are these innocuous enough?

My comments, although they might disagree with your positions, are always respectful and thoughtful. It is your censoring that has become unfriendly and in violation of your own posting philosophies.

Stop censoring posts!
Why was this censored!?!? "@andrew... He's been re-elected 8 times!!! There are no "good people" in his district!"... Tell me!!! Censor this... ********!
"Marvel/Disney not casting Daniel Wu for this or anything else honestly is the real crime here. Dan Wu can act, AND he can fight. I was hoping he'd be cast as Spike Spiegel in the Netflix adaptation of Cowboy Bebop, but no they go with John Cho who couldn't pull off a kung fu move without throwing his back out."
HOW DOES THAT VIOLATE YOUR COMMENT GUIDELINES, YAHOO? YOU USELESS *OCKSUCKERS.
"Gio has proven himself to be a very good hitter. We better not see him lower than 4th in the lineup for the rest of the year. Boone seems to be clueless with his order, placing good hitters near the bottom and terrible ones like Sanchez hitting .225 near the top."
Yahoo speech Nazis refuse to allow this to post.
WHAT THE **** YAHOO!! You people have your head up your *** so much that you can't even create a decent censoring system! You censor comments that have NO FOUL LANGUAGE WHATSOEVER, but you allow stories that have words like '********' or worse - HOW ********* IS THAT?????? YOU ARE PATHETIC...................................get your ******* **** together. MORONS!
The post by another said baseball players aren't athletes because they never land a punch during brawls. My reply was... "So boxers can hit 100 mph fastballs?" And I was censored. Censor this: "********".
