  1. I can't post. I am being blocked.

    YAHOO shouldn't allow their liberal censors to block conservative comments when they allow some very nasty comments from liberal comments.

  5. Here's whats wrong


    • when you get a notification of a reply to your post it takes you to the story but not the comment. This is since the last update...


    • before the last update it would take you to the post you replied to but not the reply itself, then you gotta scroll though 100+ posts to find your reply. But now it's 10x worse because it just takes you to the story


    • you can't turn off notifications for breaking news, so those notifications crowded out the notifications that someone replied to your post


    • there's a glitch to where sometimes when you return…

  6. It wasn't all that broken.

    CHANGE IT BACK! When I want to see my past comments and reactions to them, I FOR SURE don't want to wade through whatever thumbs up or down I've given other posters. That is just idiotic.

  7. Notifications

    Allow us to stop any and all notifications-permanently. They are useless.

  8. Comment section broken

    Yahoo comments is the only thing that sets it apart from other open news sources. Been broken, people are complaining, I read it here. Newest update, of course as usual, made it even worse. I bring thousands of reactions to Yahoo every week, like an unpaid writer for you. Hope I am heard this time

  9. Comment posts not in order any more.

    I swear you guys must be lacking job security. As soon as you fix one thing you break something else. We can now edit our posts much easier, thank you very much. The trouble is once posted they can't be found again. The posts were in chronological order. Now they are scattered. Also I get notifications when someone votes on my post but, never a word when some responds. It might be hours before I find a response.

  10. Left bias

    Most or many articles are left leaning. Please have some balance!

  11. Having the info the Headline is referring to.

    I was just trying to find some information out that the headline on Yahoo news was referring to. I found everything but. Although I'm sure the information that was provided was useful and important it was not pertaining to the headline. The reason I clicked on the topic was to find this particular information. The topic was 'Signs of Lung cancer'. I spent about 5 minutes on the info that was supplied and did not find what the topic was about. It seemed like the information that was offered was supporting a company and not supporting a person that is…

  12. Why doesn't the share button work anymore

    Share is grayed out. Doesn't share articles on social media anymore.

  13. Comment order

    Please put comments in order of hour, day and/or week. Yahoo has a different viewership than other sites/apps, so could be a frontrunner with an expanded commentary section. Thanks

  19. Showing less of a publisher is not the issue.

    Showing less of a publisher is not an issue for me. I will prefer an option, like google, where I see no more news of a certain celebrities. For ex., I don't want to see news about the royals but when I clicked show-less from one publisher about 10 other publishers print news about them which shows up on my news feed, please update your options. Thanks

  20. Get rid of the comments section

    Get rid of the comments section completely. No need for them. Too many trolls and all ppl do is argue, plus lots of misinformation being spread. A few sites have done this already. We don't need to hear everybody's opinion on news. If I wanna know soneone's opinion I'll ask!
