I'm not going to whitelist you in adblocker. If you keep dropping features and making it harder to use, I'll switch to GMail.
Alienating customers is a bad idea. You have too many ads so I put on adblocker. Now you are cutting features and functionality. Keep it up and I'll switch to GMail.

Fix it or I am gone ......yahoo is the reason I pay the ADBLOCK...... :(
sylvia nachlinger commented
I agree. I have had it with your anti-add blocker tactics. I can't even use my email any more without navigating a lot of attempts to get in.
Michael A. Morgan commented
Saw this below, but want to agree and add my voice: YAHOO MAIL WAS THE REASON I DOWNLOADED ADBLOCK!!!! Now it will be the reason I switch to Gmail. Fix it soon, or I'm gone.
Adele Krusz commented
Totally agree! This new version is truly awful. Not only do we have to choose an "action" but then we have to click on "apply." Where are your heads?
Daniel B commented
Oh yeah, and when do we some of that class action money they emailed us about? You know, that time something like 15,000,000+ accounts got compromised?
Daniel B commented
I was about to say the exact same thing. Who do they think they are? I guess they want to be the next Hotmail or AOL.
Are they really so transparently greedy? "Please unblock ads so that we make money" is all I hear. Maybe I don't want to see the stupid (and they are most definitely stupid) ads. Ever think of that?
dennis leahy commented
I totally agree If this doesn't revert back to the prior system I'm changing to gmail exclusively This change has generated time consuming steps to access emails
man iooo commented
will yahoo give us an official answer on dissatisfaction? yahoo do you like us to start migrating to concurrency?
gene baker commented
Agree 100 %. Yahoo sucks and I am ditching them
Ralph A Nunez commented
I started the process of moving my Yahoo email to my gmail account. So long Yahoo.
humming deer commented
Yahoo, you're very annoying. I too will switch over to GOOGLE.

uBlock often has well over 300 things being blocked from Yahoo Mail. In fact, using Yahoo Mail is the reason I sought and installed uBlock in the first place, because Yahoo Mail had slowed down to being functionally useless. If you think you're going to get whitelisted, you're gonna have a bad time.
Brian James Bayot commented
even with ad blocks some still get through so i dunno if yahoo is that desperate for ad revenue
Leslie Alison Murray commented
Just when I thought Yahoo couldn't get any lower. Knock it OFF with your intrusive little "reminder" that I have an ad blocker. I KNOW I HAVE ONE. You are the reason why. Now get out of my inbox and unpin that stupid ad at the top pretending to be an email. You think people don't have choices in email providers?
Angela Whiteaker commented
Yahoo just became my spam email.
Daniel Worts commented
Yahoo mail is now inescapably circling the drain

So, let me get this straight. This tech and email company, with a search function and other things, which is almost universally known to be a competitor to a certain OTHER company, thinks that the way to win over its customers and provide a better service worth buying...
Is to cut features of that service. And make it objectively worse.
Great job. You are driving your customers to your competitors. Some of us might not support ads using adblock (they objectively make the browsing experience worse), but many of those users still used your service and earned you money. Some of them might not have paid themselves, but advertised your site to others as an alternative to google. You want to know how to ACTUALLY get people to pay you a subscription fee? Give them a service worth paying for, that they can't get for free elsewhere. Remove the **** ads, and provide a GOOD experience for free users and an AMAZING experience for paying users.
All you have done here is manufacture a problem and tried selling us the solution. That's an attitude WAY too many out-of-date companies have, who refuse to adapt to the changes in their environment. And all of them, invariably, end up looking bad.
Alright, rant over.
Edward McCarthy commented
Not happy with making me change ad blocker. I refuse to have 70-80 ads per site access my
computer...i just don't patronize those sites that make me drop the ad blocker. The ad blocker
should not affect my email on Yahoo..only been using you the last 20 years. Change your
policy on this.....hate to see you lose customers but they will move.
Steven Vandavender commented
listen im sorry but im not unadd blocking you because hen i do i get add every 76 seconds. i cant stand commercials i dropped cable. i cant stand a stupid amount of adds i get an ad blocker. you guys cant stand a ad blocker so you throw me in to basic and make it to where even if i change my windows theme.IT LITERALLY HURTS MY EYES TO LOOK AT IT !!!! THAT'S WHY I USE DARK MODE ON EVERY THING!!!! WHITE BACKGROUNDS HURT IT CAUSES MIGRAINES. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF PAIN AND SUFFERING BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THIS IS! NOT I HAVE DEALT WITH YAHOO IN GOOD FAITH FOR MANY YEARS WHY AM I ( WE AS PEOPLE ) BEING TREATED LIKE THIS NOW!!!
David Sears commented
Your site immediately crashes if I turn off ad blocker. I will not turn it off. If you insist, I will stop using yahoo.
