In an article about hockey pucks, it would not let me post with the word puck.
And many times it will not let me post at all if Huffypost is the source or MGC has posted.
User MGC seems to have the ability to delete my posts. I am not breaking the rules. In his atheistic view I am wrong. He also uses ad-hominem attacks to denigrate those he disagrees with.
I post a detailed argument and an hour later it is gone.
They can't change back because the old Yahoo didn't work with stupidphones.
They won't go back, because they did this travesty to make their pages compatible with stupidphones and the idiotic Windows 8.

They are buy-partisan. Yahoo was bought by the owner of Huffypost.
That also makes then bias-partisan.
What do you expect? Yahoo was bought by the owner of Huffypost.
Most reporters hate conservatives because the goal of reporters is to get is government funded healthcare for themselves. Wire service reporters do not get employee benefits because they are independent contractors, not employees.
Yahoo is now owned by the owner of Huffypost.
Most reporters are biased because they want Obamacare for themselves. Wire service reporters (e.g. AP, UPI) do not get employee benefits (e.g. health insurance) because they are independent contractors. So they want government to give them health insurance.
They won't, because they are owned by the owner of Huffypost.

This is one of the few things that is not Yahoo's fault. Blame US copyright law.
When you see this redirection to a totally different page, it is because the original news source took down the page or moved it to archives. Since its URL changed, the Yahoo link to it does not work anymore. Yahoo does strange things when a URL is broken.
Yahoo cannot put the entire article belonging to someone else on its website. This is due to court decisions limiting how much of a copyrighted work can be reproduced on a different website.
The Read More link takes you to the original owner website.

@What do you expect from Huffypost? Yahoo is now owned by a liberal owner that also owns Huffypost and other ultra-liberal "news" media.
The link to this feedback site is broken in Yahoo News.

Why isn't Yahoo covering the baby in England who the courts want disconnected from life support?
This is what single-payer will bring to every country. Do the Yahoo censors want single payer that much???
Progressives equate their beliefs with "progress". Actually, they are trying to take us back to cave-man days.
Especially stop the liberal hatred of religious people.
Yahoo employees apparently want Obamacare for themselves, so they show us nothing but far-left news sources.
Give us all sources, and let us choose for ourselves. And l;et us comment on all of the news sources.

I think we have discovered a secret: TV reporters can't write. They know only how to blab.
I want to READ the article. There are several reasons I don't want a video:
- One location where I use Yahoo has a slow internet connection. The video goes gup gup gup instead of playing.
- In another location, I can;'t have the sound on. The video is useless without the sound.
- When you include a video, you oft3en also include a rotating video play system. I HATE THAT. Don't leave the page while I am typing a comment.
I feel that it is wrong to require any of the following to use a news page:
- A login and password
- A subscription to the newspaper
In many cases, I want to read one story that has national impact, and will probably never visit that newspaper again.
In my case, I search for various traffic engineering solutions (e.g. the diverging diamond interchange and the flashing yellow arrow signal) and these greedy ne3wspapers keep me from finding out the information I need.
If you sign up for one of their "free" subscriptions, you start getting "newsletters" that have nothing to do with what you were interested in. They want you to attend their Pumpkin Festival or know about their programs for the arts.
Tell those greedy little newspapers that people in other parts of the country are not interested in their newspaper or their local events, but in only one article that affects other parts of the US.
In addition, they are contributing to the password clutter people have to contend with. I now have over 200 accounts with various companies, most of which should not be requiring a login.
Nobody want audio to start when you are in a cube farm. STOP IT!!!!
Stop auto-running anything. I want to READ an article, not watch a stupid video.
Stop using scripts to control pages. They always crash (a no-script policy here).
And please, get rid of the pages that are nothing but video. As soon as I see "Uverse Video" I close the browsing tab immediately, before it takes over my computer.
Cute! You added a comment button to the pages that didn't allow commenting, but it does absolutely nothing.
Yahoo tech, Yahoo music, Yahoo health, Yahoo parenting, Yahoo home, and several others all have the same hard to use format, they all have scripts that crash, and they all take over the browser and switch the view to the tap they are in.
The ATT Uverse pages take over the computer and will not let me leave the page.
You changed the circles to rectangles to make this complaint false.
And you added a sham comments button. It is on the page, but it does everything except open a place to comment.
More and more articles have the bar of social media site links instead of a comment section. Stop discriminating against people who can't use social media sites or refuse to use them because of the increased probability of identity-theft.
Stop doing this. The convenience of the author is not as important as the user who is prevented from commenting.
When I click on an article, and it happens to be on Yahoo Tech, yahoo health, Yahoo education, and several others, I close it immediately, because I know I am going to be discriminated against by a bar full of links to social media sites.
The article source should not have the power to prevent comments. If they deny permission to comment, then don't allow their one-sided article on Yahoo News.
You have an new type of page with 4 or 5 circles at the top. Those circles have Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, G+, and email this page.
Whenever I see those circles, I know I Am not going to be allowed to comment. So the erroneous blather on the page will not be contested.
Unless you get it in your thick heads that some people are not allowed to use certain social media because of their jobs, you are guilty of discriminating against some people with certain professions.
And Katie Couric should not be protected against comments.
Put the comment link on EVERY page.
Again your pages require the hated Facebook or Twitter co comment.
Provide the comment feature on EVERY news page.
So far today, NONE of the stories I went to allowed comments, unless you belong to the prohibited Facebook or Twitter.
The convenience of your writers to use only those services is not as important as the fact that many of your readers are prohibited by their employers from having Facebook and Twitter accounts because of security concerns. Many are teachers.
Stop discriminating against certain classes of people by requiring social media sites to comment.
Again I am suddenly hit with a bunch of pages where comments are allowed on only Facebook or Twitter.
Pot a comments section on each and every page that can appear on the News rotation. NO EXCEPTIONS!
You are a common carrier, and must have equal access to all, including those whose jobs prohibit Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Again I am left with no way to comment on Yahoo Health, Yahoo Education, Yahoo Tech, Yahoo Sports, and Yahoo Screen, and news pages with a certain newscaster, without using Facebook or Twitter.
Stop discriminating against people whose employers prohibit them from using these identity-theft-prone sites. Stop discriminating against those who are wary of the ease with which their identities can be stolen on them.
Require each page to have either a Disqus forum entry or a Yahoo comments section.
I saw an article today that was blatantly bad science, and I wasn't allowed to tell anyone to beware of it.
How a stupid page required twitter to work.
Your pages must be compatible with people whose jobs prohibit them from having accounts with the mainstream social media systems.
Again I am confronted with pages in Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Tech, Yahoo Food, and Yahoo Education that require people to have Facebook accounts to comment.
This discriminates against people who are required by their employers to not have Facebook accounts, and those who believe that Facebook is an identity theft threat.
Three times today I visited pages that do not provide any way to comment except the hated Facebook.. Two of them were just plain wrong, telling people to do things that are wrong.
For some unknown reason, it gets the location of the Internet Service Provider.
I think Yahoo is biased because Yahoo employees want Obamacare for themselves.
Never mind that Obamacare is destroying the economy.
Either add Fox News of take off HuffingPost.
And make it so we can comment on ANY news item without belonging to the identity-theiving Facebook or Twitter.
Your ISP must be in Richardson TX. Yahoo thinks users are local to the ISP.
I am sick of so many biased articles from HuffyPost. We need the truth, not the far lerft liberal *****.
Or do the Yahoo employees want Obamacare so much that they cheat just like the leftist reporters do?
Obamacare can't possibly work, because ti promises about 40 times the US GNP in healthcare benefits.
Fox is a lot closer to the truth than CNN, NBC, CBS, and ABC. Liberalism has overtaken most newsmen. They ***** the news to get the baubles the liberals promise (but can't deliver).
