Yahoo Nazis, STOP CENSORING MY COMMENTS ON YAHOO COMMENTS.
STOP BEING SNOWFLAKES AND GET RID OF THE WEB ALGORITHMS THAT DON'T BLINDLY PROMOTE YOUR LIBERAL AGENDA.

On multiple occasions, Yahoo nazis have censored my comments. I have found that my comments are not being published. It isn't right and goes against the vary fabric of the United States to deny a certain group their right to free thought and free speech.

Liberal Yahoo doesn't want any critical thinking unless it's Trump criticism. They only want blind brainwashed Liberal zombies propaganda spread across Yahoo.

You suck, Yahoo.

All of my comments have been rejected for almost 2 years. I am a Republican and I also support police and have made comments in the past (none of which were against the terms of service), but I can't even make a comment like "Tom Brady was a great quarterback" without it being rejected. I could actually post, "I love this article", and it would get rejected. I truly believe there is an algorithm that blocks Conservative voices PERMANENTLY!

I totally agree. Today I tried to post information relevant to the Maine mass shooter regarding an article containing a 2006 F.O.I.A. document in an article by wired dot com titled "The Bio-Effects of Selected Non-Lethal Weapons." The article describes weapons that can be used to mimic schizophrenia. Yahoo immediately censored it. WHY would they not allow me to post a legitimate F.O.I.A. article about such relevant weapons unless they are in cahoots with the government/want to aid in nefarious covert government activities that could be used for political agenda's.

My ability to view or comment is dismantled without explanation or warning. What disturbs me even more is that yahoo has actually edited my comments and literally changed what I wrote. They change what I write to meet their "approving agenda". This is highly dangerous as they are changing essentially our public opinions from our genuine & true capacity. This means they could be writing anything in our identity and are. I voiced this in my latest comments along with comments I don't support Israel and I'm Jewish, and I can no longer access comments at all. Yahoo sucks and is bias beyond comprehension. So they are destroying themselves by alienating so many of the populous. The elites will only fund something if it's worth anyone's while. With fewer logging in, it won't be long before they are obsolete. Definitely a huge stark contrast in freedom of expression from years past. "They" re-worded my comments, one of them was done in a very sexy & silly way that I found embarrassing and stuck out like a sore thumb that I didn't write that and would never say that! I think they are using our comments for their own agenda and keeping what they want and discarding the rest, editing some to balance things out. No wonder you don't see the traffic of people on the server anymore. To see my comments had been altered deeply disturbs me and I don't know if they think we actually won't ever see our comments we'd written ever again, or they just don't care. What is alarming is that they could turn my comments into hate comments and that wasn't true. That's what's worrying about the fact that I've caught them and have evidence they are altering my comments. I've taken screen shots of before /after, someone definitely changed around what I articulated and changed my words. Even banning people is dangerous not to mention stupid. You can learn anything you block everyone out whom you deem unworthy of your mold and banish everyone like a scared baby! An just who makes those determinations that someone should have their rights violated? Silenced? What yahoo has turned into and stooped to is suicide on their part. They were once one of the best sites on the web. Now they are corrupt to the core and criminal.

What was wrong with this

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says States Should ‘Consider Seceding From the Union’

Response as to why the south lost.

This is not the only reason the South lost. Russia was a friend to President Lincoln. England and France wanted the South to win for cotton and other goods and they were going to join the war. Then the Russian Ruler sent a fleet of war ships to attack any England and or French ship that joined the South.

Bill Sun 06 Aug 2023 03:29:02 PM

The following comment has nothing to do with this article it was written about a 9 yr old boy that recognized Texas was being cruel to illegal immigrants. Yahoo rejected my comment. Bill Sun 06 Aug 2023 03:02:15 PM At 9 years old he knows what his parents have told him. What he doesn't know is the damage being done to water and electrical supplies. What he doesn't hear his family say is the Daily Deaths to children and adults as a result of dangerous drugs. How about the the illegal with 9 baby endangered spider monkeys in his backpack. There is a very good reason all countries require a customs check at legal ports of entry!

And here we are, four years later and not a thing has changed. Yahoo selectively censors anything that criticizes left wing politics. Criticize a trans, nope, deleted or not allowed. Simply saying the truth and using statistical facts can get your comments deleted if it isn't praising the Left. The writers can use very abusive words toward Right wingers, they can even use random cuss words...but you as a commenter, cannot cuss and you cannot use abusive words toward the Left, even if ever so slightly abusive. The double standard is garbage. Yahoo should be shut down and something new needs to replace it that doesn't allow anything biased in their articles. So tired of seeing all Left Wing ideas being pushed as being positive and all Right wing ideas being pushed as bigotry. I want to read an article without the writer's stupid opinion. I want to read an article that is not biased one way or the other. Let us make up our own damn minds and STOP CENSORING US!

I am a liberal middle with no party affiliation. I'm also a researcher and perform research before formulating replies. My comments are booted repeatedly. They do not go against the rules at all. No foul language, no links - the rules state that competitive links are not allowed and apparently that includes all .gov links including whitehouse.gov and congress.gov (?). I've been rejected for scientific terms in the science section, foreign words, Native American words, info quotes from government websites, and on and on, including a fun anecdote from my childhood under an article about my hometown. Absolutely not one thing in the story that wasn't all Mayberry-like, yet it was found to be offensive and was even rejected after review. So get off your political high horse and recognize the situation for what it is - a giant boondoggle.

This! I was completely blocked from commenting further on an article today because I posted “lmao” when someone called me an idiot. Idiot comment is still up, but lmao got me prevented from commenting on the article anymore. If another leftist publication allowed commenting I’d just switch to them. Fox News lets me call out crazies on the right, I only ever have an issue with being silenced from left leaning sites. I guess the right has a little thicker skin.

I was reading an article that was supposed to be FUN about movies that were funny. I tried three times to reply to someone about the movie "CLUE". My comments were civil and innocuous. I was censored three times and then completely blocked from participating in the comments on that article. This is what came up: "Unfortunately, you are unable to take part in this conversation right now as your comments have been blocked too many times".

Thanks for making my experience TERRIBLE for no reason, Yahoo. It was supposed to be fun. I hated it.

So why are they blocking my liberal, non-abusive, non-threatening comments when conservatives can call me things like mf and tell me they can find out where I live? I've even been told I'm being reported to the authorities. Just for expressing an opinion. You have no idea how many liberal comments are being blocked. It's that old conservative persecution complex rearing its ugly head. Yahoo censors comments arbitrarily and indiscriminately.

Yahoo has banned me from their site, from making any comments on any Story they post.. And have erased every comment I have ever made on any of their stories. All because I talked about people that was associated with Yahoo. But said nothing that Hasn't already been posted on the Internet somewhere.

I guess I stepped on someone's toes, Like maybe; -- Soros, Bragg's, Biden , Hunter Biden, and Apollo Global Management and its owners,

Apollo Global Management, Own or have their hand in atlases 90% of the U.S. and even some Internationally.

Yeah, all my comments are now rejected. They won't allow any conservative comments. But they do give free reign to all liberal and the far left to say what ever they want. Including hate, lies and bad language. Hoping someone with deep pockets will take them to court and get them fined and make them stop their anti American policies.

Then how come the "conservatives" can write the most awful, degrading things, including allusions to rape of liberal women in the news they don't like, thinly-veiled threats of violence, specific bad language that gets put back up after a report review, name-calling that is totally out of bounds, and more, without being booted. Some of the repeat offenders just keep going and going and going. Frankly, I am convinced it has more to do with who's on the shift going over the comments. They are people and people do things they shouldn't, like pick favorites and dislikes.

I am not blocked on comments right now but no longer get replies to my comments. They still warn over anything that says gangbangers,rapists or pedophiles.

I was blocked on the monkey pox stories and can not make comments on cat articles.

My cat is a Mainecoon. And you can not say the breed or raccoon. It’s racist. I also cannot say his name which is MonkeyBear.

But others can comment on Trump grabbing women by the pussy.

But I can’t say Bill Clinton is a rapist! Which he is.

Again I can comment on articles but I have to go see what supposedly has posted.

I can see some one has responded but no email to comment back. But comments are not in listings.

Now my last 10 postings there has not been any comments at all. Huh use to get alot of thumbs ups and a few thumbs down.

Now nothing…,

Especially since posting about illegals and new satanic club in Colorado.

Talk about hypocrites.

Another thing Yahoo does is log me out so when I log in it doesn’t show the comments area.

And if I use laptop it Always says I am using to much energy so it takes forever to post.

Never does that when using it anywhere else online.

I also frequently after posting have issues with yahoo mail.

Coincidence? I think not.

Now comments being pulled immediately. Tried to post on PETA. Tried to comment to another person saying they were being blocked and got blocked 2 more times. Boom pulled. Again dems can say whatever they want about Trump. ANYTHING. But you try to talk about Obama or Biden or especially Clinton and your pulled.

Someone commented on how Trump has killed a bunch of people?

And I said what about Bengazi? Or anything else Hillary was into. Blocked. Try to talk about illegals or homeless commiting crimes. Your warned or pulled.

Some other sites you can't even call them illegals or say homeless. Has to be migrants or Houseless.

How about Food insecurity instead of starving or hungry.

Colorado State University has inclusive language guide as well as other Universities.

Pull up the pdf. It will blow your mind. Whoops probably can't say that either.

Agreed, Yahoo is the most second class news source I have ever encountered. The ONLY reason I am on it, is because it is basically the only "news" source allowed with all the firewalls at work. Yahoo "journalists" are extremely sub-par, and the censoring of comments is ridiculous. Isn't that infringing on my 1st amendment? Maybe you should talk to Twitter and see how that worked out for them.

Not only is Yahoo censoring comments, they are no longer letting me manage my publishers anymore. I cannot left swipe to get rid of the publishers that I don’t want popping up on my news page. This just started happening about four or five days ago. And now I get all kinds of news articles from publishers that I absolutely have no interest in and wouldn’t read them if you paid me. Yahoo is trying to force people to read articles from publishers Yahoo likes. Yahoo is just an authoritarian piece of garbage anymore. I’ll get my news somewhere else I’m done with them.

Nonsense. I'm a Liberal and at least half of my comments are censored even when I've said absolutely nothing controversial. Criticism of Harry and Meghan must be carefully worded and even then it's a toss-up as to whether the comment will be approved. Example, an article about the identity of a lost dog, in which the owners of the lost dog claimed that a dog found years later was their dog, and a group of ladies who found the dog saying it was a different dog - I compared the photo of the dog as a pup with it's owners and a photo of the 'found' dog and noticed the dark markings on the muzzle of the otherwise white dog were much different. I commented that the configuration of the dark spots on the muzzle was noticeably different in the two photos and that I thought the two photos were of two different dogs. One sentence, nothing controversial, and I received an email saying my comment was rejected. So let's keep 'liberal' and 'conservative' out of this, because Yahoo censors don't seem to follow any political pattern at all.

This has been my experience as well. Before the shut down, it never happened. Now, it’s about 10% comments that are rejected. They don’t follow their own policies e.g. a commentator wrote in all caps (for the entire post). I did the same thing in responding, but MY comment was rejected! This happens at least once per week.

Yahoo censors comments subjectively beyond guidelines.

I'll receive mail from yahoo after commenting stating my comment is approved and published and then minutes later another comment stating my same comment has been rejected.

Also, I'll receive mail from yahoo stating that my comment is approved and published after a week which is useless because commenting ended after a couple of days.

Article-wise Yahoo authors slant everything worse than Fox.

Comments are reviewed by over-sensitive judges working subjectively dependent on mood AND political bias to censor and void comments as bad or worse than Twitter.

I did an experiment on yahoo comments. I spent a week commenting with 3 accounts. 1 commented only left wing comments the 1 only right wing and the 3rd was neutral.

All the left wing posted no problem even ones thay were clearly racist towards whites.

Most if the right wing posts were rejected or worse posted many hours later

Half the neutral posts were rejected(because they seemed right leaning)

Recently I've tried to reply to personal attacks on comments and in the middle of typing the comment page glitches and freezes.(I've tried on multiple devices and browsers and operating systems)

Obviously there is a left wing bias on yahoo's comments sections. I get censored and delayed daily if I reply or comment more than twice, the nature or character of that comment means nothing, it is summarily either censored or delayed. The commentary from those who toe this business's line however, get near carte blanche treatment. A "neat little trick" yahoo uses is waiting to "approve" a comment until an article has "gone stale", thereby creating a false aggregate of what a majority of readers really think. Yahoo denies this of course, because it is engineering a false narrative for their chosen side of the great socio-political divide, not only in the articles they choose to front, but in this clearly biased censoring practice, and that wouldn't be kool, now would it.. It's cowardly, fearful and cry bullying behaviour, and it isn't going to change just because their readership recognizes, and is offended by their game, simply because they don't have to.

I can no longer even thumbs up or down on other peoples comments.

I see they still allow all open lies, vulgar and threatening comments from the left, no problem

Can anyone imagine what would happen if it was the other way around.

This is just like what the NAZIS and COMMUNIST did...and we see who it is yahoo is blocking.

They need to be shut down.

The only stories allowed on yahoo are pro gay, pro criminal, anti conservative, anti police and anti white...and now we are not allowed to respond to their OPEN ATTACKS on family, morals and law and order.

Yahoo has unfairly censored my comments, any comment I make is automatically rejected. Comments such as "wow", "That's funny", "No kidding, "Oh really?", and "Gee". I can go on. Anything I post in the comments gets rejected. Especially racial topics, if I comment on a racist post, I get rejected but the racist post remain.

I have tried to contact yahoo about this issue with no success. My next step is to talk o a lawyer to see if there's anything I can do. These are some of the rejections:

Yahoo published a comment by Kari Lake that included "B.S.". When I copied and pasted the same comment from the Yahoo news into a comment, they held my two sentence comment for 22 hours then published it which is well after most stopped reading. They've done this numerous times. I try to be respectful yet real in offering opinions but I now believe that the Yahoo individuals that do the screening use their very own subjective thought and opinions to steer my comments to their own beliefs. Talk about hypocrisy. If they see this comment in fact, I'm sure they will find a way to punish me. It's too bad, I like the Yahoo news quite a bit.

Me too. In fact I made a new account because one was shut off by Yahoo for going against the Bidens. My new account works but the yahoo censors are not allow me to type. Once I start it like they are hitting the return key constantly and scrambling my words

I just used 'Hello" as a comment and it was rejected. On a celebrity's obituary I posted 'Heartfelt condolences' and I was rejected. Yahoo SUCKS.

You had me until you went partisan. Same things happen to me, but I am a Democrat.

Yahoo is as bad as they come , they censor anything conservative, patriotic or nationalist, any comment defending American sovereignty or borders is intentionally held up and usually not printed, Yahoo, like so many other left wing media entities has absolutely no right to simply make patriotic or nationalist comments disappear, and to censor the fact that loyal, legal Americans have every right to use force to seal and defend our borders amounts to sedition against our Constitution and our Republic !

It's not true they only censor right wing people. I am left and get censored all the time. For what, I often have no idea. Sometimes it's only because I was critical of their writing staff, correcting their misuse of words. Today I did put a pun on the Hurricane Ian story hitting Florida and got censored. My comment was:

Let's hope it blows desantis away.

Now that can mean many different things and I certainly don't see it as violent, more funny, as it was meant. However It was censored.

I also wonder if you report a comment for violating rues they simply censor it without even bothering to read it. Why do we have to post our comments anyway? It's just to vent, really. NOBODY cares what faceless people have to say. It's also more a venue for spreading lies and division to undermine democracy by Russia, China and whoever else. We also don't REALLY know anything about Yahoo's intentions and motives in the world. Most business only wants power and money. I doubt they are any different.

You must be and I'd be willing to bet you are a paid commenter for the Chinese, or possibly a bot. Anyone who feels FON is not of vital importance for the world is incompetent.

Does anyone think this comment should be censored and not published?

It's because it addresses China, the leader all of the worlds media.

[censored] YAHOO AND THEIR CENSORING!

Well , it would seem all my comments are rejected on Yahoo now. Even agreeing with their liberal view is being rejected . Without any prior warning you banned from commenting. Doesn't surprise me since I've never played well with liberals . Explaining the reality really messes with a liberals mind . It really makes Yahoo writers angry when they have one of their stories held up to the light of day and then totally trashed by the facts and the reality. I thoroughly enjoyed it while I was able to comment but now sadly must pass the torch on to others who are still able to comment on Yahoo. Good luck to you . I can still give you a like !

Yahoo's liberal view? HAHAHAHAHA I have had many, many progressive comments rejected. No swearing, name calling etc. Just because your MAGA views get turned down doesn't mean they lean to the left, you my want to check them for truth and facts. Saying that I think comments should just be put out there left or right. I often wonder who exactly sits and reads my comment and gives the thumbs up or thumbs down. Example: Use Nazi in a sentence and immediately the comment will not be published until review. I get rejected and never an exact explanation just "it's against Yahoo policy".

I'm confused by yahoo's comment censors...

This reply to me was okay for Yahoo

Poor brainwashed Jonny is your typical MAGA. Bowing down to an orange megalomanic who is pure evil. Believing far Right lies and propaganda. Following like an orange sheep, never questioning, always obeying in lockstep with the MAGA agenda. Sad. Most likely believing the stolen election lie and that Rump was a faithful husband and never did porn stars.

But my response (below) rejected. ?

Such a sophisticated language you have, Art...clearly a product of today's public school system. When you gather some facts and can actually engage in an intellectual fact based debate please look me up again. Until then, enjoy trolling.

All the guy has to do is hit the report icon on your post and if it isn't in line with liberal views you will get censored. I cannot comment on Yahoo at all now. All my comments come back rejected . I even agreed with their liberal views a few times and they still get rejected.( Not within Yahoo Community guidelines ) The truth and the reality are not very well welcomed in Liberal La La Land Yahoo . I believe it will get worse as November elections get closer. They definitely do not want anyone questioning their political candidates policies and positions before these elections hoping instead to spoon feed their readers with the lefts agenda only. Independent , Conservative and Republican views on the issues are not to be allowed on Yahoo at any costs . I call it Affirmative Action in action . And their debating skills are lacking due to a shortage of facts to debate with and no rebuttal to truth . Good luck to you .

I'm liberal and my comments are scrutinized and/or rejected constantly, even though I never use any abusive or threatening language. Conservatives have gotten away with calling me MF and other obscenities and even telling me they can find out where I live, You have no way of knowing how many liberals are having their comments rejected. Conservatives get away with plenty.

I am left and many of my political comments get censored. They are not vulgar or violent. So don't think it's only right wing they censor. They have their own agenda and I imagine it maybe whoever is on "censorship duty" at the moment does whatever they feel like doing.

It's your political commentary they don't agree with and the reason they've cut you off. Like you, I'm currently comment-less on Yahoo although I've never used profanity, threatened anyone, cussed out anyone, or tried subverting the government. However, I can be sarcastic although it's never directed at anyone in particular or meant to offend. I'm actually glad since I waste too much time on Yahoo anyway.

They censor anything that goes against the left. Meanwhile they have troll farms that spam any article where too many people go against it. They are Nazis and will face a reckoning later this year.
