Goes to show where this sh*tshow of a company is heading. :)

Stop with the ads already. It makes checking my mailbox a complete nightmare.

This General Motors way of marketing just doesn't work!!! Meaning, throwing $&*† at the wall (Yahoo! Mail) and trying to see what sticks – it doesn't work!!! Remove the ADs for subscribers who pay for email. Yahoo goes through this painstaking process of threading advertising into email way too often; it's like we all have to go through this crap every time Yahoo hires new product management. PLEASE - REMOVE THE ADS!!!
Neil McDermott commented
Stop embarrassing yourself Yahoo, this is 1998-era bs. I don't pay to have an ad filled email. Especially that cr*p IN the message box. The sidebar ones are terrible but in my messages, I mean really, wtf? I should be paid to tolerate this, not the other way around.
'Web-site Revenue for Dummies' called, they'd like you to contribute to their next book.

Is there anyone left in marketing and brand management at Yahoo Small Business? Please respect your customers and get rid of those unwanted ads!!! This is a serious breach.
Serge Desprat commented
Yahoo Small Business is a DISGRACE. Do get rid of ads we never paid for and do not want!!!
Dan Downs commented
I've never seen so many ads! Why did I pay for a no ad mail box. I believe they call this "bait & switch". How do I shut the flood OFF
William Rooker commented
The ads listed in the middle of our emails have got to go, NOW! Extremely distracting.
Elizabeth Balschi commented
I have had Yahoo email (personal account) for over 20 years and my Yahoo Business email for 10+ years. The reason I have stayed was that I liked it better than other email platforms and I had the ability to pay for Ad-free email so I PAY to have a Business email account (and website hosted) by Yahoo.
My last annual renewal the price you charge for email went up by 75% which was acceptable because a) you haven't raised prices in years and b) your email was Ad-free.
After the price increase saying that we have NO CHOICE but to accept ads is a losing proposition! (https://help.smallbusiness.yahoo.net/s/article/SLN29633)
If this does not get rectified soon I will be switching my business email - and web hosting - to another provider and given the effort that will take, I will not return.
You are really shooting yourselves in the foot on this one.
Alfred Stürm commented
Not only that the ads we do get are in some cases inappropriate for some viewers and all attempts to not see those ads do not work. Instead you will get a increase of those ads you feel are inappropriate.
Ayman Arafa commented
Just fix it, I do not want any ads. It is a business email.
Nancy Floyd commented
Here's the stupid part of your ads: I never click on them to buy anything. I hate them. Why are you showing me a bunch of women in swimsuits or super short shorts or clothes I would NEVER buy? Your "smart" advertising is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. I don't want have to see that. I know you want me to pay to have them removed, but it's all so stupid. You just make me hate the sellers. That is all you're accomplishing. Thanks for doing that. I should go to their websites and comment just that on every one of their sites.
Joe Johnson commented
Lots of customers are going to leave if you don't fix this
Rachel Treminio commented
I do not like the ads, it is distracting and unethical for business user accounts. I do not want to switch providers but I will if this is not removed soon.

I have the solution to all our troubles.

Rob L. Mulder commented
You are driving me crazy!!! I have put Yahoo on the whitelist of Adblock Plus, but you keep annoying me with pop-ups to remove my ad blocker. Stop it!
Agreed. Majority of ads are toxic and useless for every day living, it's just cruddy companies trying to make money from gullible and unaware users which I think is wrong. We're supposed to be trusting Yahoo to protect us from this crud and they're just catering to it. For what? More money? Lead the charge and make a stand, ads are wrong and if a user wants to look for something let them ask questions and do it themselves. Stop holding our personal and private information *******, we believed in you!

I just changed one of my email accounts to gmail. There are still 2 more on yahoo. I plan to switch those soon. I have been with Yahoo for more than 20 years. I have always liked it better than the other email platforms. However, this new stunt with white listing, going to basic (and not being able to stay on basic) is something I cannot accept. If I find that my account changes for the better I may come back. It's not likely.
I clicked on an ad in Yahoo mail by mistake a couple of years ago and it took me to a site that locked up my computer with a red screen and an alarm. What?? Yahoo (Verizon) is using one of the oldest tricks in the book. Since people don't like to switch email providers after a while since many contacts have it, they use that against the user. Same thing when an online company gives something away such as free web hosting (Weebly) or free photo hosting (Photobucket) the customer gets accustomed to it and they have them locked in and either force them to pay up or have greatly reduced what had once been totally free. Although Yahoo tactic is common It's sad and cheeezey!
