Hi,

Our product team is currently investigating this issue and they need additional information to investigate further. If you’re ONLY having trouble with the “Show Less” feature not working as intended— DIRECT message us at @YahooCare on Twitter and include that “Show Less” isn’t working, a screenshot of an article that you’ve already selected “Show Less” for that publisher, the article title or a link to the article and the Yahoo ID you’re signed into [NO passwords!], and we’ll investigate.

Regards,
Homepage Support

    I am not part of twitter so is there is no way to talk to support even via email?
    Past time to find a new email and web provider.

    There are multiple threads here in feedback letting you know that whenever a user chooses to see less stories from a publisher, that publisher is the first and most frequent to show up in the news feed. How incompetent are you that after months of this problem it has not yet been addressed??

    Oh I get it now. They get paid to push these articles. If we block them, Yahoo won't get paid. No wonder they always have Kardashian trash articles, they get paid to publish them. Yahoo = $5 ****** on the street corner.

    I asked for less stories from huff post on yahoo. No change. Feature does not work! ! ! I do NOT want to read impeach Trump from huff joke.

    Using the 'Manage Publishers' options you've provided doesn't work. At all. I ask you to 'Show Less' and then my feed ends up with nothing but articles from the publishers I asked you to show me less of... Are you really this incompetent or are you actually just ******* with us?

    This is true, you add huff post. But A couple of days later after you add more sites its back on see list. Yahoo does not wnat to block any sociilist sites

    Extend the feature to be "Don't show anything from..."

    I'm a middle-aged heterosexual male, I don't need to see ANYTHING from Elle, Cosmopolitan, Yahoo Style, House Beautiful, Teen Vogue, Country Living, etc...

  • Robb Van Cura commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I can successfully "show less from..." yet still stories from the publishes I've hidden show up! Add a "block stories from ..." because if I want to block stories from Huffpo or Vogue, or Vox, I don't ever want to see another story from them on my Yahoo feed again. It shouldn't be that hard to do.

    The fact that this broken functionality was allowed to make it to a production server is very revealing about what kind of "tech" company Yahoo has devolved into.

    I have to keep adding the same publishers over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again, and again, and again, and again, etc. It's like Yahoo hasn't figured out cookies, or how to remember profile settings. It didn't work 4 years ago, it still doesn't work.

    How about putting up a "Block Publisher" option and make it work. Very tired of the same **** every single day.

  • Jay Beck commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    My Yahoo home page is nothing but what women would prefer to read not me. When I select the show less option Yahoo completely ignores my selected option. Why is that ? Why do you have the option ? Why does Yahoo ignore what I have selected ? Why am I getting so much feminine type articles ?

    This hasn't been addressed yet! Any article I mark to show less almost invariably shows up FIRST on my feed!

  • Tom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When a person states they want to see less of a publication why does Yahoo continue to saturate the pages with these publications, specifically I despise the Kardasians and try to minimize anything from publications that feature them. What does Yahoo do, NOTHING! The same **** is on my opening page time after time of logging on. I don't like them, what they stand for or anything about them. STOP putting them on every single page! I'm not alone in hating these jerks.

    If you keep selecting a particular genre of view and your company keeps changing the venue to keep putting it in front you, when you've told them over and over again that you don't want that, then you don't listen, you do what you want just to make monies. I don't want sports, I don't want media hype, I don't want your scamming sponsors, your 500 plus ads and tracking cookies. I want to read new, world, local and national. NEWS, not hype, not left wing or right wing, and not censored. I don't want sports (**** that ****), I could careless about what some celebrity was wearing or *******. I want to know what is going in my country.

    Why do I have to "show less" HuffPost every single day? I get rid of it and the next day, it shows up and when I select it, it indicates it is not to be shown less! Scam by Yahoo!
