Yahoo! signing in

I [censor]ing know the [censor]ing password of my [censor]ing old account. That account was so [censor]ing old I [censor]ing made that as a kid to play game. I [censor]ing know my password and do you really expect me to [censor]ing remember the answers to my security questions when I made that account when I was like 11 years old or 10?

I just wanted to access that account because I wanted to check my childhood video game that I just recently remembered.

Yahoo! email yahoo account - urgent medical emails

Dear yahoo team

Topic : No access to email for Urgent medical related emails

I just need access to my email ASAP, I need to receive urgent medical related emails concerning my father

BELIEVE me that I have tried every way possible using yahoo help and all kind of solutions you can find online, with no success.

I cannot log in using my mobile cause I get a message that the connection to server has failed! Also cannot log in to mail using tablet or computer.

Tried customer care and was directed to the SAME pages I have already visited! With no success!

Desperate, have tried the option of "forgot my password" ( though I haven't changed it ) and the questions for verification that were presented to me were not answered by me to my recollection, and if they were, since I have registered so long ago I don't even recall the questions nor the answers !

That way I am kept In a consistent loop and cannot access my important urgent emails and not moving forward !

Please urgently help me and reactivate my account or otherwise connect me to server, as long as I can access my email and be able to use it normally..

Thanks
[protected]@yahoo.com

Yahoo! news page formatting!!

Why do you mucky up [censor] keep changing the firmat for your yahoo nres. I was viewing the current news on your site, but no longer! You keep changinh it, get the readers used to the format & you muckyups come along & change it. If it ain't broke why do you continually change it? Sure not for the better! It is crap now, you have to scroll thru entire page to read any news item we are interested in. The previous format was simple, roll the pictures/captions across screen & scroll down to read headlines on other news items. Worked just great, now it is garbage. I will do back to tv to view the news & hopefully someday you will get it right, along with other features like the local weather we used to be able to view on the front page of yahoo news. Bunch of dumb muckyups runnung yahoo.

Yahoo! my email account

On 10-16-17 or thereabouts, our Yahoo account was hacked, and a scam message sent to all our contacts, causing no end of problems, including changing our password, considering a new address, and notifying the authorities as well as all our contacts.
The culprit used this address: david.[protected]@yahoo.com. You even sent him a message through my account to verify if he wanted to add my address to his!
Please give me some sort of answer to this. [protected]@yahoo.com

Yahoo! yahoo! news

Only 7% of the world's population identify as 'feminist'. The other 93% are either uninterested in feminism or find it objectionable. I am of the latter group, so I have to ask; what is it with the glut of feminist tripe published on your 'news' site. 'Feminism' isn't news, it's an ideology... one that few share and that many find offensive. A large proportion of feminist articles Yahoo! "news" chooses to publish are blatantly sexist and steeped in misandry and misinformation. As such, Yahoo! is complicit in the promotion of hate speech.
You should consider your readership and the potential for legal claims made against you by those you may offend once too often should you continue to publish and promote such hateful opinions.

I filed a complaint here a few days ago regarding the frequent publication of hateful rhetoric and opinions on your news site. I have received no reply, my complaint does not appear on these pages and you continue to publish and promote hate speech.
Is it common practice for you to brush complaints under the carpet?
Be advised that legal redress will be sought should you continue to publish such articles.

Yahoo! a scam advertisement

Someone is claiming that People magazine are running a scam on Yahoo regarding Kate Middleton

https://screenshots.firefox.com/jmTwZSEjoEQbwmjl/peoplemagazine.com-news-today.net

https://www.calibratebody.com/ctb200tar/?pid=1107&affid=203478&subid1=339942486&subid2=&udf1=1107&udf2=102ec9a4ef39e34cd8183d942c7a4e&affiliate_id=1107&transaction_id=102ec9a4ef39e34cd8183d942c7a4e

I've copy/pasted some of the add

Kate Middleton recently announced she will spend time away from the Royal Family in 2017 to promote a new skincare line that was recently voted #1 by Dermatologists.

The 35-year-old, who now appears to be aging backwards, says, "I went through a complete transformation with one of the best skincare products on the market called Total Age Repair."

Prince William told us, "We want to campaign for a greater cause. Women's anti-aging is important for the preservation of female beauty, confidence, and ultimately individual happiness."

***Princess Kate has decided to start her campaign here in the U.K. by giving away FREE 30 day supply of Total Age Repair, only pay £4.93 for shipping!. CLICK THE LINK BELOW

Exclusive link for a FREE bottle of Total Age Repair.
here is no real secret to Kate's transformation... It all began at the recommendation of her dermatologist. Kate, like many women today, are all on a search for a Miracle Skin Product. Especially through the stress of having kids and a new family, she was suffering from wrinkles and age lines that she never had to cover up before.

Instead of letting this stress get to her, she took a leap of faith. And that leap for Total Age Repair landed her a campaign for the newest skincare line of the year. Upon more research, we've discovered that more clever women around the world - and many Hollywood actresses - have been secretly using these products too.

Yahoo! using yahoo for news

Dear Yahoo,

When I select to remove an advert that is shoved in my face with vicious repetition and I select the "It is offensive to me" option how do you actually take heed of the fact. Could you kindly explain to me how this selection of mine is treated and what action is taken. I ask this simply because the next moment that I am using Yahoo the very same offensive advert is rammed into my face.

Yahoo! stupid infinite spiral of account keys

Alright, so my account, [protected]@yahoo.com has been inactive for a while now, but I've recently stumbled into some important stuff that requires access to this old account. Luckily, I still remembered the password.

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THAT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU, YAHOO.

Because your system thinks my account's been compromised or whatever, it wants me to send an Account Key to another old account, [protected]@yahoo.com, that I linked to gaming_EMA. That decision will haunt me forever. I don't remember the password to it because it wasn't all that important. Thing is, when I try to renew the password, it wants me to send an Account Key to gaming_EMA, of which previously stated, I have no access to because your system DEMANDS that I send an Account Key to kyle_sison OF WHICH PREVIOUSLY STATED I HAVE NO ACCESS TO.

DO YOU SEE THE PROBLEM HERE?

Yahoo! news articles

It is not hard to tell that the editors of your news articles are as liberal as the day is long. I would appreciate it if you stop all the Trump slamming and taking the side of Hollywood talking heads who don't know what they are talking about.
I have had my email with you for a lot of years but will gladly take my business elsewhere if I have to be subjected to more left leaning biased news coverage.

Yahoo! yahoo email

My E:mail [protected]@yahoo, com

My E:mail normally remains accessible on my computer without signing in with a password(click on mail icon in Yahoo page )
About a week ago in order to access my mail I HAD to sign in. I put in my Password and got the INVALID PASSWORD!
I've tried to get the problem resolved with over a total of 7 hours without success. I even had a computer shop try to resolve the problem without success.
Formerly answers to security questions would solve the problem but this is no longer the case.
I've had Yahoo mail for over 10 years and so have addresses and correspondence I would like to keep.

Yahoo! sexually offensive advertising

Yahoo mail advertising pup up screen on right continues to display sexually graphic material that is particularly offensive. I have used the 'I dont like this addvertisment' tab stating the advertising is offensive and yahoo has not responded. In fact it appears that the advertising is happening more since I started complaining. I access my mail at work and will hold Yahoo and its company connections responsible for any action taken against its continued abuse of my screen. This advertising must cease immediately.

Yahoo! http://buzzing-topics.com/news/uk/news/wp-91/index.html?utm_source=68&utm_medium=60&utm_content=image&utm_campaign=468

This ad probably breaks EVERY advertising code there is. I am amazed you run it. It is not endorsed by Dragons Den, There were no offers from Dragons when it was on Dragons Den, Sandra Bullock does not endorse it, the owner has been prosecuted in the past for making ridiculous claims about this product. The picture shows memberes of the UK Dragons Den show when it was screened in Canada, the claims are lies and unfounded.
What more can I say.

Anyoption is pure SCAM. 
Let's start from the tools for investing: for most of the options the time frame is limited to 30 minutes and end of day/week. So you can not trade a 1 minute, 1 hour, 2 hours etc etc... PUT ora CALL - which is quite limitating. Sedondly the opening of US stock trading is delayed of 10 minutes, which don't allow the investor to take advance of the opening fluctuations.
Secondly when you want to withdraw your money in the best case there is 3 days waiting time for the operation to be done: even worst, in my case, my documents were not approved (tehy still are NOT approved after 4 months) and they said my card is not eligible for withdraw and never had a final answer.
Thirdly, the staff is very insisting on you making deposits all the time, not to rate the mobile app which is also terrible.
Stay away from this option trading platform !

I was able to retrieve all of my money with the aid of financialchargeback, com. They are the best chargeback service on the internet

Yahoo! a yahoo group that is sending

I got an email notice that someone had sent me an invitation to join a yahoo group... I clicked on the link and was taken to a porn site.
I then googled how do I report a yahoo dating site and the first thing I clicked on took me to another nasty site...
What has happened to yahoo? I am totally offended disgusted and a bunch more than that.
If this isn't resolved pretty quick and in a fairly aggressive manner I will take to my computer and let the public know about ur nastie little groups yahoo.
This is one of the worst things I have encountered on the internet... Omg yahoo has porn sites and are focusing on senior citizens... Again omg.
This better be taken care of quick.

Yahoo! credit one - credit card company

I would like to warn everyone about using Credit One Bank Credit Card Company.
My Story: I paid off my Credit One Bank credit card on September 19, 2017 and received a $3.07 overpayment check on October 9, 2017 from Credit One Bank.

Then on October 14, 2017 I receive an email saying that I owed the company $2.50 for Posted Activity between 10/7/2017 - 10/13/2017.
How can a closed account have activity?

NEVER USE THIS COMPANY'S CREDIT CARD BECAUSE THEY ARE CROOKS OF THE WORSE KIND!

Yahoo! difficulty downloading attachment at yahoo mail

half the time when I try to download attachment in yahoo mail, it takes a long time to download.
After I click download, nothing happens for a long time, then sometimes the download start (some other time it doesn't)
Large size attachment is more problematic than small size one.

So what I do is... I forward the email to my gmail first, then I download from there. I never have any difficulty downloading attachment in gmail.

Several times I open both windows, one yahoo, one gmail, then I open the same email, then i click download... and the gmail always starts downloading immediately and the yahoo takes forever, or never at all.
(so the problem is NOT with my internet connection)

Thanks and regards
arleen
