    The percentage of "sponsored" content on the homepage is unacceptably high, especially when "sponsored" is known to be another word for "ad", "commercial" or "****". There's way too much of it. Further, so much of it really is click-bait garbage, and Yahoo should maintain a minimum standard of quality for all content, even "sponsored" content. Ads that promote garbage that isn't true or doesn't work, articles that are formatted as slideshows with 60 slides to click through to consume what would fit into a page or two of content, "template" articles (ie: "she kept this hidden through 8 seasons of filming") - get rid of all that ****.

    Because you now choose to put ads on the left side over the articles I will use a different search engine. Very annoying

    my feed is choked with articles which pretend to be news but are in reality just ads for products complete with standard advertising jargon and prices, .....at least be honest enough to identify them as ads and stop trying to pass them off as "news".......i realize you generate revenue from ads but please stop with the con job and identify them for what they are

    It is becoming harder and harder to turn off streaming Ads once they start running. I click on them to stop and they just keep running. Also some Ads continue to stream even after you've switched to somewhere else on the internet and it is impossible to stop the noise/music because you can't even find where it's coming from. In this case you must close yahoo entirely and start over again. This kind of thing happens all the time now.

    Please remove sponsored articles. They are annoying as ****, and are misleading looking like articles.

    In between the real stories in the news feed, there are many stories that say "Sponsored." These are ALWAYS clickbait to sites that are shadier than the North side of a tree at noon. My adblocker used to get rid of them, but no more. You are sponsoring fraud by posting these links. Either vet them or get rid of them.

    Seriously, an ad states "The 5 best *** positions to have access to your partner's balls" and appearing on your FRONT PAGE for every child to see. WTF is wrong with you!? You think this type of advertising is appropriate for all audiences?!!! I'm looking into reporting you for this!!

    Used to be you had "sponsored" things every five entries; now it's every three. Are you now the "Shopping News"?

    Remove "Sponsored" content. It is nothing but misleading "ClickBait" and can't be categorized as actual news. Seriously, it is extremely annoying and dangerous because this "news" may contain viruses, trojans and other malware. It this really what Yahoo does to earn a buck? Does Yahoo really want to engage in this business practice and endanger its users or expose them to fraud? Either that or allow us to remove the content from our feed. Create a paid news feed page without all the extraneous garbage and I would gladly sign up.
