Yahoo finance will be right back!

When I go to yahoo finance I get the message Yahoo finance will be right back, our engineers are working to resolve this issue. What a bunch of BS, I can get it on my smart phone just fine. They might be blocking me for turning off the multitude off adds that constantly appear, when changing from a chart view back to the home page, No more yahoo finance for me!!!! I HAVE REACHED MY ELASTIC LIMIT!!!!! They should rename it Yahoo streaming adds and annoyance site. More attention is given to advertising than correct stock quotes and accurate stock charts.

Change of email in box to green

I opened my email account with yahoo this morning to find it had been changed to a very difficult to see shade of green, also I am receiving adds I do not want, as an older user consider using a format that is easy to see, what are the reason for the changes? why change without consulting the user? how do I change my account from yahoo to a more user friendly site? I would be interested to hear if there had been any more complaints about this my email address is ravel@***.com. I do hope I get a reply to this complaint.

You should check for possible virus in your computer, since this is probably nothing to do with Yahoo. There are lots of problems going around now.

Too many power hungry programs (ads)

I understand the need for ads to generate revenue....I get it. But when every page loads dozens of ads that aren't just a bill boards but their own programs running what "I want to see", I simply don't have the patience. When I read a story that flips between 10 photos and I have to wait 60 seconds at every click of the mouse for the background garbage to finish loading before I can scroll down and read a single paragraph.....I'm all done! You want to run a video ad when I click a news story; better be 10 seconds. If it's 30.....delete. I've got better *** to do. .....and why do you keep promoting ads that are scams? What about my web surfing indicates I want to see "the one thing power companies don't want me to know."?

This person appears every day on the board & rants how he hates Jews, &; banks, he wishes people dead, he is braking all the yahoo rules. I want to continue to use Yahoo finance but this one person makes you frightened to post. There has to be something you can do, there is no monitor of this board but his grossbehavior is terrible & causing friction & fights. Please look into this & HELP! I can't even show children what hate he writes! This is very wrong, just check it out. Please ask him to clean up his act or leave. Thanks

Their system crashing sucks

We've been dealing with their system going down on Friday's. Like right now, this Friday 4/17/15. Trying to attach a document, it won't attached it errors out. We can't even reply to a email. The system is locked or frozen and you can't do anything. It's not just happening on Friday's, but other days during the week. Now it happening more often andthat's frustrating. My coworker tried logging out, now he can't even log back in. It's Friday, one of the busiest days of the week where we're trying to contact and complete all business with our customers, and having to deal with system failures is just frustrating. The frequency of these crashes is unexceptable. Moving to GOOGLE!!!

YAHOO STINKS

The way Yahoo breaches it's own privacy laws to post unsolicited ads in my email has been *** me off for months. And now, when I log in to check mail, the losers direct me to their home page first. Are they so desperate that they need to resort to the above tactics? Yahoo is operated by the same bunch of dumb *** that produce that pathetic morning news show (Sunrise) as it has the same kind of concepts, news and people. Reminds one of opening one of those 3rd rate rags which focuses on big ***, celebrities and voyeruistic news pitches. It is very, very pathetic. Alyce G

I can barely use Yahoo. I try to type an answer in Yahoo Answers and it won't allow me to type because of the video at the side.

Can't even get rid of it so I can use my computer. It doesn't work with IE anymore. Had to switch to Edge and it stinks in that browser also but better than in IE. Too bad.

I used it for 10 years and liked it mostly. Now it just plain stinks.

No help available!

There is a strange loop that when locked out tells you to contact customer care, which in turn sends you back through a series of articles on how to use the website to fix it, which in turn tells you to contact customer care - who says they will send an e-mail to you. TO THE ACCOUNT YOU CAN'T ACCESS! I can forsee this company going out of business if this keeps up. With all of the alternatives out there I can't imagine people will continue to choose Yahoo. If so and your account screws up kiss it goodbye because they aren't available and don't care to be apparently!

YahooMail has been exhibiting all the signs of having been turned over to a group of school kids dabbling in the field of site engineering.

Someone earlier posted a comment to the effect that YM may be attempting to shed users. That is the only reason I can think of that would motivate them to muck about with their code the way they have been.

Yahoo - Account Password Review from Sparks, Texas

I agree 100%. With no live person at yahoo to contact, a company called Live Tech has decided to profit from your lack of care for your followers. This company demanded $300 to fix my password problem. When I declined they locked me out of my phone email. With nobody to talk to at yahoo, I feel fed up and ready to find a email provider who cares.

Gmail. Yahoo should be outlawed and all facilities tactically nuked.

I am also a computer repair tech and we spend up to hours removeing all the *** yahoo installs onto computers without their customers knowing. Not only is Yahoo a worthless service but they cost their customers money when they have to take it into a shop like mine to clean up their ***.

New mail box format & email trailing suck!!!

Yahoo mail came up with such a *** mail box & email traillin format since 2014 or was it 2013? The email trail when using a computer is all over the place, and so hard to read the previous email & so hard to follow. Thank goodness the email trail in mobile phone & tablet are still under the old format. Who's the *** that came up with this new format should be fired!!! What's wrong with the old email format? Why fixed something when it's not broken? Their so called "improvement" is 10 steps backward as it only created frustration for their user. Have they got too much time on their hand?

Locked my account unable to do password

yahoo has locked my account and when I try to change my password they are dictating what I can or cant use after months of there harassment of changing password and providing them a phone number, unable to reach anyone I think we need to boycott them till the share holders start asking them questions as they are the only ones that yahoo cares about, seems they have nothing better to do than to harass there users and avoid them by no real means of help or contact I find this absurd and beyond a disgrace of a company that years ago actually cared

Yahoo sucks

I keep getting spam from @***.com email addresses. Any other site allows you to simply forward to abuse@...com for action. But not Yahoo. They make you go to their site and access your Yahoo account. I DON'T HAVE a *%#@ Yahoo account. And they are proving me right: why on earth would I want to sign up with a company with such blatant disregard for the consumer? Bottom line: their service is used to spam you and they don't give a rat's a$$. An unethical company that truly sucks. I have to enter at least 100 words before this site will accept my complaint, so I will say it again: Yahoo is an unethical company that truly sucks.

Yahoo Answers allowing other users to change category of questions.

I recently joined Yahoo Answers, and whenever I look for my question, it gets moved to a category that hardly anybody reads. This didn't happen when I used it before. I asked others, and they say Level 7 users now have the power to move other people's questions. I think they're abusing this power as my question purposely gets moved to an unrelated category that hardly anybody looks in. I think by the time they get to Level 7 they start thinking they own whole categories and move questions just because they don't like them. I think if they even get to Level 7, then they're losers with no life who don't do anything else. I will give up using Yahoo Answers if other users are allowed to bully other users like this.

Yahoo Answers is a classic example of why Yahoo has always played 2nd 3rd etc to Google and endless other search engines. I will never use Yahoo for anything again. Common sense is rocket science to these people.

#1212375

Yahoo Answers is a complete joke. The very ones who are allowed to hide questions in unrelated categories:

1-still live with Mommy and Daddy and never once independent

2-know nothing of how the real world works

3-have "motel tans" from never leaving home

4-are literal freaks , often surrounded by multiple computers, this IS their life and it is indeed *** !

5-lack the common sense to ask any adult over 30 years of age, "because of my age only, do you see me as a naive child who has not been alive long enough to possess ANY wisdom ?

Yahoo - Email Account Review from Tampa, Florida

Update by user Mar 18, 2015

Sorry gave wrong email. Fubarfixer572@***.com

Original review posted by user Mar 18, 2015
I have had nothing but problems with my email account at yahoo. I have tried all of their solutions and nothing works. I have contacted their support team through the support help and this has been a 2 week process and still no email help. I have sent them all the info needed to get my account back online but nothing yet. I now know how google was able to take over the web. Poor leadership at yahoo.com makes it easy for companies to do it better. Hey yahoo if you need someone who can take the bull by the horns and make it work contact me at jaculp@***.com. "O" I'm sorry it doesn't work no worries use this one furbarfixer9963@***.com it works 24/7.
