replace ClosedWeb (i.e. OpenWeb) with a genuine impartial moderating service
Idea: replace ClosedWeb (albeit OpenWeb) with a genuine impartial moderating service that is not obviously skewed to ban all users that relate from a Christian view (not sure if happening also to other belief systems as muslim etc as have not seen any persons from other belief systems posting complaints of censorship). This service has a committed agenda to immediately target any who make mention of Christian terms as Bible, Scriptures, God, Jesus in respectful ways that uphold the faith, speak from such a viewpoint, bring this to the conversation as the way a user relates to any agenda, article, event, etcetera, and delete any comment made, no matter if it meets community guidelines, as if OpenWeb has a secret agenda to simply edit out of all media conversation all Christian users identified by 'Christian' replies. Neutrality has no calculations in their moderation, only that a remark has a Christian viewpoint, that is enough for the comment to be deleted, and then the user given a hidden gag so everything fails to post. Continuing to use this biased service with an agenda to keep religious users out of all conversations has brought Yahoo down to the level of communism and is giving a definite message to the large population of Christian consumers that their business is not wanted, that their opinions are not allowed, that healthy conversations composed of differing points of views that include religious along with non-religious are rejected. The Christian consumers are not a minority. To continue using a clearly biased service that is not fair, but has a driven agenda to quiet voices that do not support their non-religious views, is to estrange a large consumer base from Yahoo itself, and its related businesses, as Verizon etcetera, and makes clear Yahoo has no interest in improving but instead has interest in participating in hate-driven propaganda to make invisible large consumer populations simply because they have viewpoints that are integrally woven with their faith, whatever that is, but seems particularly to be devoted to hypocritically disallow any user identified to post with religious views only based on that while allowing users making no religious angles to be a venomous as they want to be. It is better to have no moderation but simply software,than to have a communistic service that moderates hypocritically as if there is indeed a darker agenda at work there, determined to make all conversations a one-sided view, and erase what has made the USA and the value of freedom of speech, a place of healthy diversity. At this point Yahoo cannot make any valid reason why it is employing a slanted hypocritical moderation service except that Yahoo itself has become and welcomes biased anti-healthy conversations, hypocritically moderated and wants to carve an online world where half the population is not allowed to speak without any sound reason but a biased agenda. At this point Yahoo is risking alienating large consumer bases across all religions who are being unfairly targeted? The improvement is simple, dump the biased service, replace with an unbiased service that really moderates according to community rules and doesn't invent that persons with religious viewpoints are speaking dangerous topics or hate topics as that is extremist censorship, worse than the ghost they are claiming to censor, and it all reflects upon Yahoo for allowing such a service to moderate. As OpenWeb has a You Must Go By Our Rules or We Won't Moderate For Your Business terms to use them, clearly the problem is allowing such a service with such a controlling agenda to be the service moderating Yahoo comments, and the solution simple, fire them and replace them with one that goes by your rules not theirs, for in so using them, Yahoo agreed to relinguish a lot of its rights, and put this questionable service at the helm, in essence, giving them full permission and power to carve internet conversation according to their personal biased business plan, which is to make the internet conversations free of religious users, no mentions of comments with faith values allowed, and falsely make young generations believe only the godless left view is right, and any other view is deviant.

the word "oaf" "dastardly" and "Ham-fisted" "verbal kung fu" seemingly violate Openweb & yahoo community guidelines. ...
these are very common words, normal, non offensive words, yet seemingly trigger the A.I. bots "Certain parts of your comment may include inappropriate language. Please revise to take part in the conversation." warning.
mind you the whole and full comments where...quote me:
"a no2 pencil... just as dastardly."
"that sign, seems ham-fisted."
"if you swore an oath, don't be an oaf."
"alright enough verbal kung fu".
all those comments where blocked / rejected, or until figured out what may have wrongly triggered your bots to block my comment.
i cannot help but feel a great aversion
to using the yahoo news and comment features, if such common, non offensive words and sentences are forbidden to be used.

The censorship is over the top and it was better before when they had actual human moderators review posts that may be questionable. Perhaps time to rethink this whole OpenWeb idea, yahoo admins? Posters don't need to be babysat.
