Yahoo Im disappointed and not surprised by the removal of comments. I get the fact yahoo is being basically extorted into removing the comment section and the liability involved
However, I also get the fact the real issue here is based on Yahoo's revenue and your advertisers leaving (extortion part), and nothing else.
And what's terrifying about this move, is we are seeing more and more corporations giving into socialist and facist ideologies and from that, the systematic shutdown of free speech and suppression of other opinions. That's the very fabric of America, our origins and what makes America great.
Yahoo comments were the only way people who believe in American values and free speech could express their opinions and to let the people decide what is good for them to read or not. Not yahoo.
It's unacceptable for Yahoo to do this and comments were the only reason I went to Yahoo in the first place, because Google has long been indoctrinated and corrupt.
