  1. Block foreign trolls

    I am a long time user of Yahoo. I read and comment on your articles daily. I am very concerned with the many comments are clearly from bots and trolls from foreign countries and posted to create division or spread dangerous propaganda. Most of these comments are on politically oriented articles. Most of these are likely from foreign origins or routed through proxy servers. To protect American from foreign influence (as google, facebook, etc are doing) Yahoo! should block comments sent through proxy servers and only accept direct server to server postings.

  3. How about disabling ads audio so that every time I click a link in your feed it doesn't blow out my speakers

    It's not going to inspire me to buy anything. In fact, I can pretty much promise you that any ad that blows up with audio the minute I click a link will never get a dime from me.

  7. Stop promoting guns

    Articles touting guns should not be in the news feed. If the gun nuts want to read about which one is supposedly better, I am sure they know where to find these reviews.

  8. Bad loading a result of too many video boxes your site becomes useless to post comments offer feedback . I think it is clear you are perfect

    Your spending the public's time with a bloated software load which is faulty to say the least . It spends more time loading onto your computer then does not finish the process because it is over worked as a result of a elaborate download. Google is used because they don't add all kinds of **** on the main page you decide what you want to see it is focused and Yahoo is not. It's not that i dislike your stories it is the complicated way it operates to load on a computer. I have a chromebook which is not as…

  9. I want to have the sports stories that constantly show up on my pages to go away. I used to be able to click on a yes/no option

    I want to have the sports stories that constantly show up on my pages to go away. I used to be able to click on a yes/no option, but that option has disappeared. I do not care about sports stories. I want to remove them from my news pages.

  10. Your website has NO ORGANIZATION! Why don't you categorize your context like every other website?

    Go back to categories so I don't have to see headlines for the Kardashians on every other story!

  11. Please use closed captioning, even if it's lousy auto-captioning

    Closed captioning on videos would be great, please. I know that the sources don't always provide the captioning, but when they're clips from TV news, they really should. IF GMA and local news channels want their clips to have global exposure on Yahoo!, then it should be part of their deal with you that they include the captions they were required to provide when they were on the air.

    There is software in existence now, too, that will do an auto-caption; it's generally a pretty poor caption compared to having a trained person do it, but it's better than nothing…

  13. Enough with the "Celebrity" Obsession

    Every single day it's nothing but article after article of "celebrities" in their **** bathing suits or underwear on vacation somewhere the average American can never go. Lately it's the over 50 crowd, Hurley, Crawford, Klum, Shields, et.al. Can't you do any better than this? It's gotten monotonous and rather sickening. Maybe start a browser for the brainless idiots who get off on this bs.

  14. Stop running 30 second ads before some pictures under News tab (HOME is OK)

    When viewing under the News tab, some stories have their video prefaced by the same 30 second ad for multiple stories. Today for instance, "NATO calls on Russia to destroy new missile, warns of response" plays correctly under the Home tab but has a 30 second Amica ad run first before the correct story video. The Amica ad is run first in some but not all stories under the News tab. Please stop this.

  16. need a "report" feature for articles

    We need a report feature for articles. There seems to be waaaaay too many articles that are completely biased and provide no facts. Case in point this recent article about a pregnant woman being shot and killed by a police officer. 1. she wasnt pregnant. 2. she had multiple warrants out for her arrest. and 3. she tried to take a officers taser and use it on him. All of this has been confirmed by the family and the police yet the editor of the article just sent out whatever he wanted. That writer/editor should have legal action taken upon…

  17. More "Feel Good" human interest, non-celebrity, non-political stories please!

    Yahoo used to carry more feel good stories before the 2016 campaign heated up. Lots of comments in yesterday's CBS story you carried about the lunch stealing labs had people saying they wanted more. We all can use the reprieve from the constant political and celebrity stories. We can all use stories about regular people like us doing nice things. Please consider adding MORE upbeat content like about the dogs or the boy in foster care who wants to be adopted. We're overloaded with the famous!

  18. Divers Spot Amelia Earhart's Lost Airplane; Faints (is a total lie in an advertising title)

    Please stop lying in topic titles just to get the click through

    Divers Spot Amelia Earhart's Lost Airplane; Faints (is a total lie in an advertising title)

    It was an interesting enough series of pages to see the pictures and brief descriptions of each, but 9 click thru's were needed, which is bad enough, but the complete lie in the topic title disgusted and angered me since the topic in the title did not and does not exist in the earth today, maybe some day but not now.

  19. I want the site to be the site and the app to be the app. I should be able to look up stories and discussions on either.

    I want the site to stop redirecting me to the app when I click on past comments or stories or forcing to use my phone instead of password to log in. I shouldn't be forced to use both my phone and laptop instead of one or the other. The mobile app usually won't even let me see my entire conversation without backing out and hunting for the original comment. Let me use my password to log in and look up my comments on whichever device I am using at the time.

  20. How about when you include a story on your news feed that says "viral clip", how about actually including said viral clip.
