Yahoo I'm disappointed but not at all surprised by the removal of comments. I get the fact yahoo is being basically extorted into removing the comment section and the liability involved.
However let's be real, the issue to remove comments is not based on based on a "cause", rather it's based on greed and Yahoo's revenue being cut off by advertisers leaving if post remain (extortion part).
However what's terrifying about your decision yahoo is seeing more and more corporations giving into socialist and fascist ideologies and from that, the systematic removal of free speech and suppression of opinions. That freedom and that concept is the very fabric of what makes America great.
Yahoo comment sections was the only way people who still believe in American values and free speech could express their opinions against the typical leftist agenda, but more importantly, its to let the people express themselves freely and then let the people decide what is good to read or not. Not yahoo or any other body because that's when it turns to suppression. And we have plenty of history around that topic.
Reading the comments was the only reason I went to Yahoo in the first place, because Google has long been indoctrinated and corrupt.
Please change your stance and stand up for freedom of speech.
