  1. Remove the upvote/downvote system in the comment section

    It's pretty common knowledge that Yahoo comment sections are absolute toxic dumpsters. Every discussion on any tangentially politics-related post inevitably gets incredibly polarized towards one political extremity. And the reason for this is the upvote/downvote system that is painfully easy to manipulate to steer the discussion one way or another. If Yahoo isn't going to do a proper job of moderating their comment sections and aren't willing to do away with it entirely (which is understandable), then please just remove the upvote/downvote system and just auto-sort the comments by most recent or something instead. All the upvote/downvote system does is…

  3. Re-enable ability to look at message header via right click

    Used to be able to view message headers by right clicking on them. It was a GREAT service to help determine if a message purporting to be from a known person was legit or scam/spam.

  4. Enable multiple select by using shift key as AOL does

    I'm trying to clean up my mailbox and it's a royal pain in the **** to have to select EVERY LAST message individually. Whoever the ya-hoo was that killed that intelligent feature ought to be banned to developing for hotmail.

  5. Take all opinion articles and put them in their own category.That way the real news can be read by people.

    Sorry, opinion pieces are being read by people and they consider it fact. We need to try to idiot proof the process so people can make good decisions for their lives and others around them.

  6. Please check the notifications. They are not clearing for some reason. I know this has been listed before but is not fixed. Really bad.

    Notifications on home page do not delete nor is the count changed. This has been listed before and responded too; however, it is not fixed. As the articles age they become so out of date.

  7. I need to have a way to have the ads play silently. I need to have the sound on my computer on but when I go to check and article on Yahoo

    Is there a way to make sound disabled for ads? I cannot turn computer sound off nor can I have loud ads blaring. Please offer a solution.

  8. 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.

  9. Please stop refreshing page and going to top of page while I am scrolling down list of articles

    Site is very annoying when I am trying to read the list of articles and it suddenly refreshes and takes me back to the top of the list. So I must go back to stop and rinse and repeat. After a couple of times of this I give up and just stop reading this site. Please stop this refreshing.

  10. Please stop posting racially motivated pieces.

    It is killing America. I believe 90% of people are not racial. With all the exposure mindless people fall victim.

  11. Make it possible to change the location of one's mail server - i.e., back to a US server

    It was once possible to change the location of one's Yahoo Mail server in Yahoo Mail settings. I did this many years ago - switching from a US server to a Singapore server. Within a year or two, my need for being on a Singapore server went away, so I wanted to switch back to a US server; but discovered that this was no longer possible for an end-user (Settings options had been modified). I've spoken with Yahoo customer service to request the change, but the request was denied and I was told that there was really no difference. This,…

  12. get rid of sponsered articles

    You have a lot of good articles but because they are "sponsored" articles they are nothing more that time consuming click bait and switch which by the second click I have lost all interest.

  13. Stop using 'slams,' 'slammed.' English has a wide vocabulary. Find some new verbs!

    Expand your vocabulary. I get pretty tired of seeing that someone has been "slammed" or that "x slams y!" If you are being paid to write, use a thesaurus or something.

  14. Please bring back local and world news

    There is no where on yahoo to look at World News, no where to find Local News, no links to political cartoons or other cartoonists, almost never any science articles, and your sports page usually reads like high school students with no sports experience is writing the articles. Even as a democrat myself I find the far left political bias to be infuriating and the misandry oozes off the website like a sinus infection. Why?

  15. remove the ice cruncher ad. It recycles every few seconds and I have had to turn off the sound on my computer to avoid going crazy.

    remove the ice cruncher ad. It recycles every few seconds and I have had to turn off the volume on my computer. I am also considering not buying Colgate toothpaste which we currently use as a protest.

  17. TOO MUCH JUNK on the front page instead of NEWS. Also, I'm sick & tired of the constant 'security' thing with signing in to Yahoo! END IT!

    If the 'we've noticed you not signing in on this device...." were accurate, you'd only have to pass it ONCE...NOT EVERY STEENKEEENG TIME YOU LOG IN!!! I can see MAYBE if you're logging into a site or destination requiring it, but for MAIL, it's STUPID!!! Fix it and the equally-stupid mail and adds within the opening page (oh yeah, and the 'make Yahoo! my browser' ****.), or A LOT of us will be going ELSEWHERE!!!

  18. get rid of scroll ads... thry are terrible, slow and laggy and believe now... i don't won't will never watch them and i am sure there are mi

    they are terrible, slow and laggy and believe now... i don't won't will never watch them and i am sure there are millions also that don't also... if you run an article, run it on one page... otherwise it's worthless to watch... you want an ad on that page, make the page not laggy and keep article on that one page...
