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.

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: "********".
ONE YEAR AND THREE DAYS THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN ON YOUR FEEDBACK PAGE AND WE STILL DON'T HAVE EVEN ONE RESPONSE FROM YAHOO.
Dear Yahoo *uckheads: This comment was censored today -
"We will never win a World Cup in my lifetime so honestly I don't give AF about the national team. My club teams will suffice. Go Chelsea, Go Atlanta United!"
How does that break your TOS? Especially since I've used the term "AF" many times before and not been censored?
YOU PEOPLE ARE USELESS *OCKSUCKERS.
By now, it's pretty common knowledge that yahoo moderators have been instructed to remove informative conservative comments. Sure, you can post "Trump 2020" but that's about the extent of it. List reasons to vote for Trump and it's iffy your comment will post. List reasons NOT to vote for liberals and your comment most likely won't post. Make any comment that gives information Yahoo should have given their audience but didn't, and your comment definitely won't post. However, sometimes such comments seem to post but simply don't get seen. This is tactic 1:
Tactic 1: When your comment seems like it should have gotten some response (such as a thumbs up or down) but didn't, check for you comment under a different yahoo account on a different computer. It's possible that you are the only one who can see your post and others can't. The yahoo moderator has the power to show you, and you alone, your comment in the stream, but nobody else can see it.
Tactic 2: Computer problems. No, it's not your imagination that everything's fine when you agree with the author of a yahoo article, but you suddenly get a "Temporary Network Error" message when you post an informative comment that does not agree. Again, you can post that you don't agree. The problem occurs when you post WHY you don't agree. Yahoo likes to post poorly researched leftist articles, but they don't like for those articles to look dumb once people get to the comments section.
Tactic 3: Similar to tactic 2, Yahoo can also disable your ability to pause videos, etc. in order to clutter the article page to make it difficult for you to post any more comments after you have posted one they don't like.
Here's how to get around this: recommending other email services that don't do these things to other users has, in my experience, made the yahoo moderator temporarily more forgiving of conservative comments in the comments section. Even now, I recommend zoho email because it's free, it's ad-free, it's fancy and organized and you can even retrieve sent messages after you've sent them. Best of all, switching to zoho means you're no longer supporting the racist organization yahoo has been from their inception, that believes that white people killed for their skin color is not newsworthy, but a racial slur used by a white person should be featured news, and that consistently misquotes our current president in order to prevent him from accomplishing his goal of preventing illegals from flooding our country, destroying our economy even more than it has already been destroyed.
Tried to post this comment today: "$100 says they're Muslims."
What exactly is wrong with that comment? How does that break your TOS?
And tried to post this to an article about a bison attack at Yellowstone:
"These people go to Yellowstone and walk on these paths yards from enormous wild animals and they just think it's like the zoo and walk on past like nothing will ever happen. They turn their backs on these animals or let their guard down and this is what happens. I really wish the government would heavily restrict access to that park. These tourists walk around like the animals are cool with it and too many end up like this girl, or worse."
YAHOO, PLEASE INFORM ME AS TO HOW THIS VIOLATES YOUR TOS? TRIED TO POST MULTIPLE TIMES, SYSTEM WILL NOT DO IT.
AND WE HAVE NOW MOVED TO #15 ON THE CHARTS. Still no response from the hacks at Yahoo.
The story was about a bison charging a girl and tossing her into the air. My comment was... "there's a reason they tell you to stay away from "wild Animals"... and you censored it!... Censor this... Duck Fou!
Moderators are now changing Yahoo! Users names to "Anonymous". Totally and complete *********!!!
Yahoo! is a complete JOKE!!!
David Portwood commented
I notice my posts to the Yahoo forums are sometimes censored, i.e., don't get posted, even when I don't appear to be in violation of guidelines. Beware a bureaucrat with power. Does anybody surveil the censors? If someone with an agenda pulled all posts favoring a certain side of an issue, that would be bias to the other side, wouldn't it?
"Poof"!?!? you censored my post because I used the word "poof"? Censor this... ********.
Tried to post this today, got censored, still no explanation from the shitbags at Yahoo:
"I love how apparently everyone on this planet is allowed to come here, demand my tax dollars to pay for their lifestyles, and I'm not allowed to say anything about it lest I be labeled a racist. Then these people get to protest my business and affect my bottom line and they aren't even legal citizens of this country? They'll march down the street waving the flag of whatever hole they came from, and I'm supposed to be the one who steps aside?"
And yet another comment censored for no reason. YAHOO, PLEASE TELL ME HOW THIS VIOLATES YOUR TERMS: "Dear Jay Busbee, cub political reporter: it's not the PGA's job to get involved in politics, nor should they. When companies follow advice like yours they almost always end up worse off. I want to watch sports, not political rallies. I care about how well you can pass a soccer ball, not about the fact that you're a proud lesbian. I care about how well you can putt, not the fact that you're African-American. I don't watch sports to find out what Serena Williams thinks about reparations or how much women get paid. I watch to see her hit tennis balls. If these people won't take the hint, then I guess I'll find other pastimes to spend my money on. Ones that aren't interested in constantly telling me how to vote."
SO HOW IS THAT IN VIOLATION, HUH? OH WHO CARES, YOU WON'T RESPOND ANYWAY YOU USELESS *UCKS. *UCK YOU AND *UCK GOOGLE AND *UCK FACEBOOK TOO. I HOPE TRUMP COMES AT YOU WITH ANTI-TRUST AND PUTS YOU ALL OUT OF A JOB.
