Autoplay Video is Not a Good Idea

Often when I click on an article link on Yahoo's home page, it won't be just the article shown but an entire series of articles shown. There would be video auto-playing but it's never at the very top but rather I would have to scroll down several articles in order to find the playing video so that I can pause it. Whoever came up with the idea to put in autoplay video=true coding needs to be fired and apologize. Even worse is Yahoo's idea of implementing shoddy website navigation with their news articles. Can they please return to the tried-and-proven formula of simply having an independent article webpage that many other news websites have? And more importantly, turn off the video autoplay function?

As one of their engineers said when people complained about changes to their email interface years ago (I believe his name was Boneforte), "people don't appreciate good software design". He shows the attitude Yahoo has towards their customers many of whom have left.

When surfing the web and especially with sites like Yahoo, it is imperative you have protection from unwanted "junk" many sites inundate you with: Blur, UBlock Origin, Disconnect, etc. I get very few ads and there is even a separate little add-on in my browser which automatically blocks all videos on a site from auto playing. Do a search for an add-on like that for whatever browser you use.

Non stop news on the Kardashian’s, enough

Why does Yahoo keep shoving this stupidity down our throats everyday and night about the idiotic Kardashian’s? The world has many news worthy reporting instead of this non stop infatuation Yahoo has with this fake Kardashian family. Wake up Yahoo! Who cares about these wannabes

I am not hearing impaired, let me choose to listen or not.

It seems that Yahoo has decided, for me, that I should listen to "Yahoo Finance" presentations and if not listen, as in mute, then it automatically goes to "closed caption". Only other option is to comply or Pause the presentation. I contacted Support and this the response I got from them. "After speaking with the Finance team, we have determined that this is an intentional setting by the Finance team, deemed preferable as most users mute audio. This is a design decision by the Finance team and I will pass on your feedback about this automatic setting." Regards, (associates name removed) Oath Customer Care I guess if more users were to complain they might reconsider, but until then it is .. pause .. what an annoyance.

Very poor and damaging

The opening page of my yahoomail has changed to a coloured version and new features have been inserted which seriously inconvenienced me and the mail stopped responding. Sush action by the service provider has caused me immense damage and difficulty. As a result of such action I am not able to open a single mail nor am I able to send any mail nor am I able to open any attachment. Such irresponsible action has caused diifiiculty to many ill patients as their suffering can not be reduced. Since this morning my YAHOOMail messages page is not working. The get up of the page has also been changed. Please restore the page as it was till yesterday. Thanks atindrasen@***.com

Disappointed with yahoo news

I really wish that yahoo news would bring back the system of being able to like or dislike articles and being able to customize the news page. There is so much garbage on the yahoo news-most of it is not news at all. I am sick of hearing of about three subjects all the time. There are never any unbiased articles. The articles are based on a twitter quote. While there are some positive people on twitter, most of the people are so angry and then yahoo takes their quotes and uses them as the headline. Most kids in school now think that everyone is transgender based on the amount of coverage that yahoo gives those stories. I would like to have control over what types of articles are on my news page-no Kardashians or any trashy articles. If yahoo can't figure out a way then I am going to have to stop using the search engine for good.

Blocking e mails

For two days I have been unable to access anything on my computer ,due to a form they are insisting I say ok to ,which I have said no to on numerous occasions ,which are completely ignored .There is a part on the form to exercise your right to say no to this change in how they deal with my account as they are merging with A.O L and god knows who else.I do not want my data shared with anyone and have said so .This is blackmail ,and I would like advise on how I can get another server without buying another computer.I would NEVER ever use Yahoo again after this experience Mary Parkin

They have done the same thing to me on numerous occasions. If somebody complains about your posts, they simply ghost your posts.

Or won't let you post. Just because some snowflake can't handle debate.

Sick of the Hype, the Ads and Nonsense News Coverage

Click on a supposed story and it's either just a snippet of nonsense with no content, or it's a poorly written piece that is based on nothing factual. There must be a serious shortage of writers or actual (educated) reporters. Fake news, no news and hyped-up bad news, that's all there is now. Same for Yahoo Finance - with a big attention getting headline and then a whoop-tee-doo zero content half-ass written piece of crap. I know some people believe everything they read on the Net, but does Yahoo (and other web news sites) really think that we're that stupid and gullible? 100 words.
