Yahoo is useless now

well ill start with the constant page faults from all the unauthorized streaming ads that just start barking at you... then there are the apple ads that you cant stop, minimize and take up 3/4 of my 21 inch screen. Mail now is getting to the point it takes longer for me to type a sentence than it takes for my computer to wake up from being powered off... yahoo answers...please what a waste... dont bother making a comment on a story because yahoo has censorship *** that will either delete your post, change your post, ban you for no reason, and if its anything conservative it is straight squashed. Hillary and Kardashian are clearly worshiped by the people working at yahoo, Katie Couric is a straight out lying liberal who does interviews then changes every single thing you said to a liberal twist. I wont even use messenger... heres the thing that sucks... Ive been on Yahoo since 1997 almost 20 years! Once upon a time it was great, then they just kept adding more and more and more completely useless junk that is just noise and filler. The noise now has overpowered company. Maybe its that CEO Chick that thinks its cool to spend 8 million on a theme party for herself, maybe its the fact they are trying to bring in pseudo celebrities and paying them too much, I don't know why it got ruined, but I'm slowly trying to figure out how to migrate off of yahoo. I'm sooo sick of streaming commercials that play without my permission. it makes me want to walk into their corporate offices and beat someone with a claw hammer. they do know that every single one of their ads causes page faults? stack overloads...

Home page

Yahoo Home page has gone from good to very bad. You have to get by all the advertisement to read one paragraph then it says read more, that opens a new page with more advertisement that says next. I don't wish to take 15 min to read a 4 paragraph story or wait 1 min for it to load up after I hit next!!!!!!!!!!! Then fish threw more ads just to hit next again and wait for that to load Most if not all the time I wont continue reading when it says READ MORE OR NEXT It just isn't worth my time I Check my mail then go to another home page to read news or other stores. Go back to old home page YAHOO OR FIX YOUR (NEW ONE) soon a lot of us are going to stop using yahoo altogether!!!

Error 554 Message not allowed

I called Yahoo support today on why I received this message when I tried forwarding a message from my Gmail account to my Yahoo email address. The guy told me I had an SMTP virus and it would cost me at least $200.00 or more to fix the issue. He said I clicked on some advertisement link or something in an email sent to me. He would have to pass me onto a level II tech to fix the problem and would guarantee the fix would last only for a year. When I refused to pay and said I'll just delete my Yahoo account he asked literally, "How much can you afford to pay". Talk about highway robbery!!!! Either he was new and needs better training, perhaps a different job or Yahoo is in the business of extorting money for nonsense. I did my own troubleshooting and all I needed to do is correct the date and time on my iPad which I had changed on purpose days ago for another task I was doing at the time and didn't change it back. Once I corrected it then I was able to forward and send new emails to my Yahoo again.

I want to go back to old version of messenger

I am using Yahoo both mail and mess from 1995 and it s first time when I am thinking to stop using this. It became a mess. Besides its useless interface with conversations tabs, the functionality is lower and lower. Messages not sent. Or arriving 3 days later. I am having new messages but I don't know from who? Buddy list is disappearing in the moment I am putting the cursor onto. Ask me to connect from a mobile device for unlocked some features. I have done it hundred times but still same message. It looks like no human is reading the complains and only IA unable to fix the things left. I am having the account locked 4 -5 times per week and I have to redo the all recovery password stuff. I see now g m a I l allows you to add yahoo mail. I will give it a try but the similarity between interfaces make me think there are same "smart" managers on both sites.

Yahoo news stories and "read more"

I've only used yahoo since I first clicked on a laptop, no complaints at all, I like the company alot. If I may offer a suggestion, the "read more" suggestion you put in the trending stories after 2 or 3 paragraphs is annoying. This is something new and I can't understand it's purpose. I clicked onto the trending story because, well, I have every intention of reading the story...the whole story. Now I don't have the fastest internet and it takes a bit to get to the page after I click "enter", so it's extra annoying to have to click and wait after reading only a small part of the story. Thanks, hope your making tons of $ and stay in business.

I agree, the "Read More" is a pointless waste of time and just makes me load 2 pages instead of one. If I click on an article it's because I want to read it, not a trailer leading up to it!

Usually after putting up with it a couple of times I just leave yahoo and go to Google News, they take you straight to the article and don't make you read a trailer before you read the article, a much better choice.

Yahoo "Read More" sucks! Get rid of it or I will find my news somewhere else!

Terrible editing and daily items

I like Yahoo and have for some time, but times change. Now it seems Yahoo believes all who tune in are fans of celebrities, radicals in one way or another, bigots, racists, fascists, travelers on a limitless budget, or weirdos who seek the dark side of tragic lives. I hope the majority of us are not who read Yahoo Home page. I feel sure those who seek out photos of deformed children, fighting celebs, one-sided politico rants, repeating "sponsored' ads, teasing "the Most Blah Blah", the richest celebs, athletes, politicians, etc. can seek these items out in another less formal format. I don't need to keep seeing the "20 most Blah Blah Blah", or the "Camera kept rolling" for bizarre panty shots.....I mean really.....give us a break. Just assumed the readers have an IQ of at least a 6th grader and your web site may be more tolerable. On Top of everything else, you removed most of the delete little down arrows for story deletion. I am ready to give up and go to Bing or Google.

Can't open an email account

I don't own a cell phone. Signing up for Yahoo requires one. I have a Google Voice number but Yahoo won't accept that. I will be opening a gmail account instead. Too bad. I have a Yahoo account I opened years ago that I may delete as I don't care much for these invasive practices. Now I am required to type more words than I need to post this, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, all the way home.

Yahoo mail and news SUCKS now

Wow, they used to good. My account was locked for no reason...other than obtaining my mobile phone number and other email addresses. They would not unlock it unless I gave them more of my private info. Not only that, but they would not accept "yahoosucksdicksforfree@....." as my new non yahoo address. Go figure. Must be that someone in tech there has had their feeling hurt. Somehow I dont think yahoo will last much longer with this POOR service. And, by dropping local news from the feed, what reason is there to ever click on the site? I just dont see a need for yahoo anymore.

Subscription News

Yahoo how about drop the news from companies that want you to subscribe to read the news. Why should I have to read the headlines when I can't read the story? What kind of BS is that? The LATIMES is one of them, Drop the news from them. When I go to read an article I am presented with a place to subscribe. I guess I have to come up with 100 words of BS to get this up. Now this is lame as well.What kind of complaint system forces you to write 100 words to complain? Yes this is even worse than the original complaint. Bye

Wow, no one likes you anymore

Add me to the list. I am about ready to stop my Yahoo/AT&T domain name, that I have had for a decade. Life was good at one time. I had an XP computer, that ran decent, and operated the AT&T download of SiteBuilder. My web site prospered. Then, apparently some geek nerds decided there was a way to rip off folks, *** them off, and make some money in the long run. I was not asked, but was told by Yahoo, that I am now an Aabaco, customer. What a silly *** name is Aabaco? Sounds like an outfit that Wile E Coyote, bought supplies from. My new computer is used, but is a decent Dell Optiflex, with lots of RAM. I can NOT get SiteBuilder to download appropriately, nor will it boot once it is in my computer. I have spent far too many hours dicking around with this, and do I really need a web site, when I can do all I need to do on Twitter, and FaceBook. I am ready to cancel my accounts, you jerks.

Yahoo Answers- Worst Company Reflects on Community

DO NOT TRY. I REPEAT DO NOT EVEN TRY YAHOO ANSWERS. It is by far the worst place you can ever think of. It is like tossing your sweet innocent kitten in a lion's cage just because you think they are of the same species. I regret asking questions to these people, they are the worst! Very impolite and have no regards helping you. Oddly, enough, they have all the time in the world to answer to disgusting "sexual" related questions but, if it is something innocent like a clarification or help on homework, they will *** you off and say the common "do it yourself' phrase. Rude much? Very. Trust me, if you wanted help on these kind of matters, I recommend you to really hire a tutor, ask the teacher directly, or go to "OpenStudy" (OpenStudy is amazing, very polite people with proper etiquette and will even help you answer the question step by step all the way) you will waste less time low-lives that way. The reason towards such disrespect? Well, take a look at the Yahoo terms, it states that the only thing they care is about harassment but they won't care about disrespectful answers unless you have a lot of people on your side to report/ flag the answer. Whatever you post, be prepared to get an answer that may not be appropriate ("you, and not Yahoo, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Yahoo Services. Yahoo does not control the Content posted via the Yahoo Services and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Yahoo Services, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable."- Yahoo Terms, Sec. 6 Member Conduct). Horrible, ain't it? Well, it is basically no wonder people do whatever they want and answer questions politely because well, Yahoo lets them! I can only wish that there was a change in the terms on this matter but, unless doesn't do anything about it this will always remain this way. A bad company reflects a bad community. Once again, DO NOT TRY YAHOO ANSWERS or anything Yahoo related if you don't want to see or hear a disrespectful person on the other line.

Too much Yahoo Spam Emails

all the spam emails I received end with Yahoo.com so they must not worry that spammers set up false yahoo email addresses in order to send spam world-wide. It never stops. Time to end Yahoo email. If we can't stop it, what can we do. I block each and every spam email and yet the next day more and more come in. 99% have email addresses from Yahoo. Are they not willing to stop this practice? Best I can figure is that they don't care because it is also impossible to figure how to contact them about this problem. It's a shame. Maybe I should sue them because my only other choice is to constantly change my very own email address and I shouldn't have to be forced to do that. I would go to the federal government but we all know that is a dead end path for sure.
