Sports comment boards wiped clean of comments
Several hockey and baseball comment boards are routinely wiped clean of every single comment. One user with dozens of accounts often brags of how he does this by reporting every post as abuse. This is happening on the hockey and baseball boards for Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh. Please evaluate this and take action. It is more than frustrating that Yahoo supports and allows multiple accounts to post vile and hate, yet allows same users to eliminate the opportunity for actual sports discussions. If I can help resolve this matter, please feel free to contact me.
More TOS compliant comments being depleted by (nasty) multiple account user who is (apparently) exploiting flaw in Yahoo "flag for abuse" system.
Maybe someday, Yahoo will address this widespread problem and fix it. Let's hope so.
There are a lot of comments disappearing today on both the (shared) Red Sox and Yankees boards. Can't tell if they are self deletions, punitive removals by Yahoo, or just bulk "housecleaning" by Yahoo.
Anybody have any knowledge or ideas?
More legitimate comments are disappearing from the (shared) Boston Red Sox comments board. "Mad Bomber" spammer with at least 17 multiple accounts/handles is the likely suspect.
Real baseball fans are being censored by this maniac.
Despite many flag for abuse, Yahoo is taking no action. Apparently no human beings at Yahoo are monitoring the situation.
I had one comment deleted nine times. The comment supported Kimbrel, and was not controversial or obscene.
Also happening on Boston Red Sox (shared) comments board . . . not all comments being "wiped clean" but many plus this particular spammer has . . . at last count . . . at least 15 different accounts and "nicknames" (handles/monikers . . . which I can provide) and is posting (via some kind of program) dozens of alpha-numeric short "comments" that avoid being detected by the Yahoo bots.
Also, he seems to be exploiting the flaws of the Yahoo report-abuse function by using those multiple accounts to flag off legitimate comments from genuine sports fans.
He must be found and stopped.
