I live in America. At least half the time I click on an interesting article only to find its about someone or something in the UK which has absolutely no bearing to us in America. If you need to include articles like that you should have "sections"....UK section, World section, etc. So we can pick and choose the type of articles we want to read.
I have clicked the show less UK new and still get UK news. If Yahoo is going to offer a feature to hide unwanted categories, make it work.

Used to be able to rely on Yahoo for brief, relevant news topics. Half the stories are from UK, other half are useless celebrity updates on people I've never heard of. Get it right, Yahoo!!!
