Stop linking to 3rd party pages requiring subscription to continue reading...
My long list of complaints is growing...
After having to install an add on to stop videos from auto starting, the new aggravating thing is going to a news item only to discover that a subscription is required to view the article beyond the first teaser paragraph.
If ya can't come up with original content Yahoo please just do without!

Totally agree. it is hugely frustrating.
Sprint/SoftBank: Rich uncle - FT.com
SoftBank chief executive Masayoshi Son wants to put up more cash in support of his stumbling US mobile operator Sprint Corp. Sprint needs lots of capital, but its weak operating results and $34bn in total debt make additional borrowing tricky.
Can't read it because I won't sign up for Financial Times. STOP DOING THIS!
I noticed this complaint was shared 4 months ago & apparently, nothing's changed. Is this comment section for real or it just killing time for Yahoo workers to give them something to read because "fixing" things is not in their job description.
I agree 100 percent.
Thank you, Mark. I won't read those articles either.
What happened to free information yahoo ?
I agree i expect to read to a story but just get a few lines

This is the final straw I think. Way too many articles I need to register or pay to read. No thanks Yahoo.
It happened again to me. Following a link to NEWSWEEK and was told to subscribe before I could read the article

Yahoo News article is link to an article in Fnancial Times that requires you to register to see the article. This should not be allowed or you should post a warning. Very disappointing.
it seems that yahoo writters cant come up with anything original any way ...and the subscriptions to newsweek or THE REQUIREMENTS OF 3 & 4TH PARTY SITES BEING ALLOWED YOU PERSONAL INFO . yeah that aint gonna happen ...then thats WHAT YAHOO HAS BEEN ABOUT SINCE IT WAS THE BUZZ IN 2005 ....AND THE SUBSCRIBERS WANTED PERSONAL INFO.

I agree with Mark. I will not pay to sign up to Newsweek or any other service. Yahoo should stop linking stories to companies that do this. I know it is too much to ask since Yahoo gets a cut of all the subscriptions, but, really. I plan to change my homepage to something else if this continues.
I came here specifically to post this same complaint.
