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.
Stop interfering with my 'experience' by having ads among my emails!! Then and only then will I "turn off my ad blocker"
There is *zero* chance I will whitelist yahoo mail. There is a much greater chance I will just use a different email service.

stop bugging me about my ad blocker
I have white-listed Yahoo Mail in the list of my ad blocker (I can tell by its icon that my ad blocker is "green" for Yahoo Mail), but the Mail application always.. just always show its interrupting window (message) that it suffers from ad blocker.
please improve the app to recognise that it is white-listed.

ads are annoying, time consuming so an ad blocker working on the background is better than whitelisting Yahoo.
Stop asking me to disable my ad blocker!

Add Yahoo to the ***** list of once reputable sites begging users to allow their malicious advertisers to destroy your experience and computer so that they can make money. Ad blocker is required precisely because these sites have no filter or specifications when it comes to advertising. I do apologize for the inconvenience that being on Yahoo is causing corporate after years of selling out everyone.
I have those ads that take over your page saying "Call this number because microsoft detected a virus and we'll remove it" Yeah how about no. I'm keeping adblocker. As a Tech Giant, they should be able to at least make sure the ads are safe
I use ADBLOCKER for a reason! I HATE annoying ad popups! I will NOT disable the adblocker for ANY reason! PERIOD!
STOP ASKING ME TO SHUT OFF AD BLOCKER! THERE IS A REASON I HAVE IT. STOP ASKING MY OPINION, I HAVE TOLD YOU "I DON'T ******* WANT TO PAY FOR YOUR WHITELIST OR SHUT OFF MY AD BLOCKER!"

In one day ABP ADBLOKER blocked 141 unwanted advertisements
-- Thank goodness for ABP !!!
When I turn off my Ad Blocker when using Yahoo Mail, for the White List, I have had 2 Virus caught in the last 6 months.
Sorry, but I am playing it safe.
Unfortunately, Yahoo Mail doesn't filter Ad content or content that appears in the Ad area. Shameful and disturbing.

I keep getting prompted to disable my ad blocker, or add the "remove side ads extension". I don't mind the side ads. I can't stand the top ad bar at the top of the message list. Get rid of that and I'll happily disable my ad blocker for Yahoo

I will not turn off my ad blocker. Quit asking. Force it and I will take my email needs elsewhere. Thank you.
While I understand that ads provide revenue, it can't be beyond the capabilities of Yahoo to ensure that they do not dominate Mail to the detriment of user experience

Ad blocker is there for my protection and I will not turn it off so you can push advertising on me. I do not care for any advertising, I'm not a business but a real person who uses an e-mail not an advertising service. Take notice of this, as more and more users will drift away from your e-mail service. I am personally culling most of my e-mails and in the process of migrating over another e-mail service provider where I don't get bombarded with meaningless ads. I have already posted in my e-mail signature to all interested parties they should migrate to ProtonMail.

This is the reason I have an ad blocker on my computer, and I whitelist NOBODY. Yahoo already has enough clickbait on it's homepage to make it a worthless source of news, which makes your wanting users to whitelist you questionable.
I've used Yahoo since 1995, so I'm not a noob here. As competition for ad revenue grows, so does the standards for advertisers drop. If you think you won't get a "Hi Jacker" ad, you're mistaken. I've had that happen a few times on several sites, and yes, even Yahoo. No, I keep my adblocker.
Funny, it does allow the old style, "banner" ads.

What made me need adblocker was the stupid ads at the top of the inbox that impersonate emails. They would load with just enough delay that when I tried to click the newest email i would click that and get directed god knows where unsafe site. No thank you. Put tidy unobtrusive ads on the side, maybe, sure. But as it is the ads are definitely unsafe.

there should be no demand for us to turn off as blocked before viewing free content put up on Yahoo ....... you could ask to please turn off ad blocker but not require it to read articles posted on main page
