Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue
Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.
Sorry yahoo, my adblocker is part of my antivirus package. I won't be crippling my protection just so you can claim some ad revenue from ads I ignore anyway.

How about this....I will never in my lifetime buy anything from a popup or an ad you force me to look at.....matter of fact i am going to go out of my way and use a part of my precious life to make a list of the companies or products in your ads to remind me to completely boycott them. If you were to have an ad take over my screen peddling oxygen I would quit breathing. So, YES, YAHOO!MAIL I WILL TURN OFF MY AD BLOCKER SO YOUR PRECIOUS ADVERTISEMENTS CAN WRECK MY USER EXPERIENCE AND WILL NEVER GET A PRECIOUS DOLLAR FROM ME. Please take a dollar out of your pocket and worship it then twist it into a tight spiral and shove it up your ^&%!
Quit with the "please turn off ad blocker" pop up. Not going to do it. If I need to go to another e-mail service, I will.

Yahoo has become unusable because of that constant extortion to unblock ads. You greedy ***** already have so much money that you use Dollar-bills (and I don't mean $1 bills) as toilet-paper. Extortion is illegal, trying to take-away my Liberty & Freedom is illegal, taking away [and trying to take away] my freedom to choose is illegal, taking away [and trying to take away] my freedom to choose between a good option and a bad one is illegal, extortioning me (i.e. saying "you let us do this bad thing to you" (i.e. show advertisements that allow malware into your computer, track your computer-usage habits (i.e. how you use your computer. how you use the Internet when you're on the computer. what emails you read. who you email. what you email them about. how you use the Internet when you're on the Internet. etcetera), track where you go on the World Wide Web, etcetera) "or this bad thing will happen to you" (i.e. we constantly harass you to unblock advertisements. we do not allow you to use the "free" version of YahooMail. we constantly put misleading--and--deceptive options (i.e. "allow ads", "unblock ads", "go to Pro version", "Done unblocking ads" (which sounds like "I'm finished unblocking ads"); all of which apparently [<]seem to do[>] the same thing), etcetera).
ALL of this is ILLEGAL (let-alone, INETHICAL and IMMORAL).
GO **** YOURSELVES Verizon!!
"Verizon Wireless. We never stop working for <ways to extort you from your money / ways to separate you from your money / your money> / We never stop working on ways to separate you from your money / We never stop working on ways to extort you from your money". THAT'S your REAL slogan.
Until you ******** stop disrespecting [and disobeying] God's laws and The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution (of which is based on the Declaration of Independence) and stop working in cahoots with (and/or collaborating with) the NSA and all these other ******** that are doing illegal ****, you can go **** yourselves.

Totally agree!! Stop with the ad blocker!! This is just another in a long list of reasons why I should just have a gmail account, also the straw that will break the camels back. Lose this or I'm out.

I suppose Yahoo! has too many users. You should offer a lot more useful things to Pro version than No ads to make me buy that. And I don't have a problem with me disabling the ad-blocker for Yahoo, but... let's be serious: my inbox looks like a tabloid with your ads active. So, NO: I won't disable the ad-blocker and I believe I'll change my email provider. :)
Fenrir Wolf commented
Can't search my mail without white listing but you're trying to display so much **** that my inbox doesn't function worth a ****. I don't mind an add or two, but the reality is you've got enough garbage I can't avoid, there's no way you're hurting that **** bad for revenue.

I'll stop using an ad blocker when Yahoo stops putting ads in my email and/or on the page. I also use Gmail. Guess what no ads, no complaints about an ad blocker. Keep it up and I'll just stop using Yahoo Mail.

We LOVE ads. But TRUE ads, the ones who want to SELL, hence to PLEASE, hence who will NEVER place them in the way of what I am doing.
I don't accept any more to disable my Adblocker temporarily for a site: when I did, I was immediately assaulted by EVEN MORE of those FALSE ads with AUTOPLAY, OVERLAY, and other deliberate offense: FALSE ads because they NEVER HAS any intent or chance to sell anything to anyone, their ONLY effect (if not intent) is to destroy the web

I agree. When Yahoo can guarantee mail won't be infected Ill consider pausing m,y Ad blocker. I sure we all know this won't happen just like me pausing my blocks won't happen. Too many bad people out there. I will always protect myself as well as I can.

My Sentiments Exactly!!!!!
Stop with the pop up asking me to turn off ad blocker. Not going to do it.
Dale Juneau commented
Stop ads in Email, email is all one wants, so stop asking to turn off ad block
Every time I see the stupid ad blocker pop up, I want to say the following:
I've noticed you're still not serving ads without tracking. I've configured my ad blocker to allow ads from ad networks that do not track. Please serve ads without tracking so you can maximize your revenue potential from my account.

The ads eat screen space, The ads eat bandwidth. On a mobile device the bandwidth & screen hogging of these ads cripple the mobile device. The ads can't be guaranteed to be malware free. The ads are selected from spying on the customer. The scanning/reading of the email violates privacy. I've stopped using the account for anything new. In 2016 I got an email from yahoo talking about the hacking.
How can anybody trust this company anymore with anything remotely private?

Yahoo, what does - I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANY POP-UP ADS don't you understand!! I use adblocker because I AM SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING POP-UP ADS and a automatic WINDOWS media screen when I view e-mail.
Give rid of the pop-up ads I DO NOT NEED TO SEE THEM!
reminder that using ublock origin allows one to block ad domains in such a way that the pop up never appears because the domain is never resolved on your machine. Why use Adblock or adblock plus when you can block domains by domain name, ensuring they never are able to process that annoying check for ad blocking?

Yep, im going to continue using my ad blocker too. ******** yahoo. why is it that everytime you ******** 'update' ****, it looks, feels, and operates like a piece of 90's ****? I get it that you need to make money, but you dont do that by ******* your customers overt and doing **** that doesnt help any of your customers, it just makes some yahoo employee look good. customer service used to mean something. Now it means you take a **** on your customers.

Your popup makes me feel that I use my account in an unsecure or bad way. However, I do the opposite, since I qualify ads as malware! This popup with the sad emoji icon is ridiculous!
