Show Less Option does not work

The "Show Less" option does not seem to "Show Less" of any of the publishers I do not want to see on the news feed. Can this be fixed?

    Make the news feature so that the user can pick what they want to look at instead of the junk that keeps popping up and won't go away with the show less.

    The swipe option does not remove the article directly but rather provides an indicator to show less of that content from that publisher. If you refresh, you may see similar stories again, swiping those stories as well will help provide more indicators. Over time, Yahoo will learn your interests and attempt to show you less of those stories and providers.

    When I select a publication to show less or select a publication in the manage publication section it NEVER works. I can select a publication and half the time I refresh the page and the exact publication I just wanted to see less shows up again. If not right away the next day it’s like I’ve never been on Yahoo! And all the publications I didn’t want to see are still featured. It makes me feel that Yahoo! Is pushing their preferences rather than respecting my preferences. If you are going to ignore what people want what is the point? Or are there specific publications you ignore and others you don’t when the preferences align with Yahoo!?

    The title says it all. Every time that I tell it to show less, one of the other publishers that I don't want to see comes back.
    Fix it.

    If you give me the option to tell you the content that I don't want to see and I tell you that I'm not interested in anything from, woman's health, who what wear, allure, Cosmo, Elle, oprah, etc then actually stop.

    I swipe left on all the articles I care not to see. I do this deliberately and methodically. I refresh the page. I scroll down and see all the articles that I just swiped left on. I swipe left on all the articles I care not to see again. I do this deliberately and methodically for a second time. I refresh the page once more. Lo and behold, the articles are still there. Why? Why bother to have a feature to tailor one's homepage if you plan on placing the content that you want instead of the content I want? I'm not a fan of fake choice, otherwise I'd vote Democrat. I'd sincerely love a response from you as to why my choice is irrelevant.

    The show less option dose not work whatsoever. I am still seeing the same garbage day after day. I don’t want to have to stop using yahoo, but the daily news articles are all nonsense.

    It seems "show less of" doesn't work, otherwise I wouldn't be seeing anything from Fox News and their affiliates or sports. I'd like that fixed, but also want it enhanced, in addition to the option of showing less of a publisher, I would also like the subject or person being an option too. I don't mind People, I do mind anything with Kardashian or Jenner as the subject. Give people the option of Showing less if a subject or publisher.

    You ask me to show less or more of a certain poster such as Huffington and I still see it all the time on my feed. Getting close to not coming to yahoo because of this reason.

    Your news is so one sided , I’ve tried the “show less” Na,it doesn’t work, in fact I think you send more of the things I don’t want to see

    Why do I bother selecting “see less Cosmo” or whatever the case may be, when it apptto do no good? Is Yahoo just screwing with us?

    Why offer the show less feature if it doesn't even work. I'm tired of lying organizations like Huffpost

    Everyday I try to remove sites like Huffpost, teen Vogue, and People from my newsfeed by using the "show less" feature and they always return. Please fix this!

    Do not show HuffPost articles in my feed after selecting show less hundreds of times.

  • Jens Gade commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Stop showing me anyone from the Royal family, or named Bieber, Jenner, or Kardashian! I've been clicking show less on multiple publishers that keep popping back up in my newsfeed.
