  1. FIX YOUR COMMENT CENSOR ALGORITHM

    Whatever bots you use to censor comments are broken. I've been trying to post a benign comment that doesn't attack anyone, doesn't use any profanity, and doesn't use any of the other stupid words you Yahoos have deigned to censor (because you're retards, one of the words you censor). Yet you will not post it, you keep deleting the comment. It is incredibly frustrating and one of the reasons why I'm about to drop Yahoo and never visit your sites again.

  2. I posted 2 videos of whites attacked for being white, so Yahoo removed my ability to post video links.

    Yahoo is constantly posting videos of white people using racial slurs or calling the police needlessly. Yahoo brings us a new story about one or the other every week, but never a single story about a white person attacked for their skin color. I posted two videos that happened this past October: one of Chris Bilcik getting his eye sliced in a pizza parlor for being white and one of Andy Rosenmayer getting his head bashed in with a bowling ball for being white. Both had happened that month and yahoo never reported about either story. In an extra attempt…

  3. You need to have 'Science' as one of your search categories. Why is it left out?

    You definitely have 'Science' news items on your home page, so it makes no sense that a user can't search by it.

  4. mute

    The mute feature is horribly flawed but I won't complain about the usual things. The second worst part about mute is that even though you mute someone, they can still see you and reply to your posts and ridicule you behind your back (in your own post). If you get clever, you'll notice the reply count is higher than the number of replies, which tells you to sign out and view the comments as a public person. Then you can read what the muted person said about you. Now the worst part. Lately I can't reply to any of my…

  6. No video on news feed's

    Not too long ago you guys changed your platform of the home screen. Yahoo has been my home screen since the beginning. But since the change, I can no longer see the video's of most of the news feed posts. The one's I can see, I can't expand into full screen view. The screen just remains blank. This is the same experience at home with my MacBook Air as well as at work with my SurfacePro. It's kinda ridiculous and you guys need to fix it, please. Not sure how much longer I can go with read only articles. We…

  7. Sizing issue with videos on articles

    When viewing an article with a video attached via Iframe there is a sizing issue making the iframe to small to view the full video.

    Current code is:
    <div class="caas-iframe fixed-height facebook caas-loaded" style="height:200px;"><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FCOAvalancheInfo%2Fvideos%2F1237681643096737%2F"></iframe></div>

    .caas-iframe blockquote, .caas-iframe iframe {

    width: 100%;
    
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    border-width: 0;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
    left: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    min-height: 1px;

    }

    Corrected working code is:

    <div class="caas-iframe fixed-height facebook caas-loaded" style="height: 420px;"><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FCOAvalancheInfo%2Fvideos%2F1237681643096737%2F"></iframe></div>

    .caas-iframe blockquote, .caas-iframe iframe {

    width: 100%;
    
    height: 100%;
    /* position: absolute; */
    border-width: 0;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
    left: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    min-height: 1px;

  10. Font or page resize issue across Yahoo properties when font scale different on monitors

    Font or page resize issue across Yahoo properties when font scale different on monitors

    My primary monitor is high density and is scaled to 125%, whereas my secondary is 100%. On every page load and I think every ad load cycle the page jumps scale, then returns to size when displayed on the monitor that is at 100% scale. It makes it very difficult to use email as the subject links jump all over the page.

  14. Dangerous JS code on main Yahoo page

    On main Yahoo page you have JS code like:
    window.onload = function() {
    var astroBodyText = document.getElementById("astroBodyText");
    ...
    while (astroBodyText.scrollHeight > astroBodyText.offsetHeight) {
    }
    }

    For some systems (depends on installed fonts) condition:
    astroBodyText.scrollHeight > astroBodyText.offsetHeight

    always true, that's why your main page is stucking :-(
    Please fix this condition or add condition for exit from loop.

  17. Comments section

    I don't seem to be getting alerts when someone has replied on my comments on a story. I also can click on show replies and nothing shows up just a comment box and I don't need to comment on my own comment. Yahoo used to be really good and great working. But so many problems exist now, I don't get this on any other homepage of any kind.
