Yahoo! Comments (You must Login to Comment)

#Comments
1 Jesus, Yahoo! Stop buying out things you later take away! No wonder you suck so much now. It's because they've deformed their site over the years from being reliable to being "why would we care?" Their site is Captcha-friendly, you'll find that stupid thing where you least expect it. Especially to play their games. I used to be a frequent Yahoo! Pool player, but with the frustration of having to tell Java over and over again that it's OKAY to run and the Captcha prompting afterwards. It wasn't like it prevented spambots or bots at all from coming in. Because guess what? People STILL manage to get bots in there. And that game is so out-dated that they don't bother revising it so people still cheat at the game too to this day. So I stopped playing. Commenting on some articles is a pain because lord behold, you'll find some bigot who wants to argue with you as well as his/her legion thumbing down your comment to death. Everyone wants to feel like they're right on there and can't accept it when they're wrong so they'll turn asshole on you. Psh. Then Yahoo! boldly removed their web messenger, which okay. But what gets me is, why try and turn Yahoo! Mail into this all-in-one service? It's a mess, they still have their messengers releasing last I knew. I don't care what's trending or what's happening right now. I switched to GMail for a reason and it's because when I just want mail. I will get mail. Not just unnecessary features I can find anywheres else on the site. -- Submitted By: () on October 8, 2013, 4:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I'm now hearing rumors that Yahoo is planning to buy Tumblr for $1 billion. All I can say is, if they do buy it, this isn't going to go over well with Tumblr users. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 19, 2013, 3:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Yahoo needs to quit changing the damn email layouts. I was content with what it was before. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 15, 2012, 9:02 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Cartooner, that is the most accurate summation of anything I have ever read here. Kudos. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 15, 2012, 11:55 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Easiest way to lose faith in humanity is reading the comments section. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 12, 2012, 6:29 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Reading the comment section of Yahoo articles is like reading the comment section of music/song-lyric videos on Youtube. Both are a cesspool of ignorance and hate. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on October 11, 2012, 2:11 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Now i know many of the news articles, you lose faith in humanity when you look at the comments section, but lately... it seems like even some of the articles where the majority of the people should form sensible opinions now are being trolled. It's quite sad really -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 12, 2012, 12:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 @Locotus: Weird, considering that most of the comments I see on Yahoo are right-wing comments. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 28, 2012, 9:08 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Any time anyone makes a conservative/right wing comment, it gets deleted. Way to be inclusive and fight censorship, liberals! -- Submitted By: (Locutus) on July 27, 2012, 2:59 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I agree Robert. One look at some of the posts on the news articles, and you lose all faith in humanity -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 11, 2011, 5:08 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Many comments boards seem to have been overrun by psychopaths. It's like they made hundreds of Timothy McVeigh clones and they all made Yahoo accounts. I've seen some truly evil comments, from mocking innocent people's deaths, to insulting the mourning family members of the deceased. It makes you wonder why our tax dollars are providing internet access to psych wards. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 11, 2011, 2:37 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I know what you mean Robert. God forbid you spell a word wrong or have a slight bad grammar in your comment. They attack you like a bunch of piranas. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on January 23, 2011, 12:47 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 God help you if you post on a comment on a topic and there are a team of cyberbully trolls who don't agree with you. They'll submit it as spam. If the administrators agree with them (or otherwise have some beef against you), you'll get slapped with restrictions, in the form of posting limits, among others. It happens all the time to a friend of mine...even though they stayed on topic and DIDN'T spam the messageboards! This is one reason I RARELY post comments on Yahoo. Luckily, no one's reported me as spam, but still. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 6, 2011, 1:38 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 The only time I use Yahoo is when I check my e-mail. I don't like the fact they ruined Netdisaster (geez, can't they take a joke?). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 22, 2010, 8:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Yahoo was an important site my family and I visited for searching back in the 90s, but when the page became cluttered with embarassing news reports and useless features, combined with my love for all things Google, I've thrown in the towel for Yahoo! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on January 10, 2010, 8:52 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Yahoo used to be relatively cool, back in the mid-1990s. It seems odd now but there were really just a few thousand websites back then, and Yahoo was useful since it was a list of basically all the ones worth visiting. Lots of other sites tried to do this (in fact, the 'ya' in 'yahoo' stands for 'yet another') but Yahoo was the best. Of course that's now an impossible and irrelevant thing to do, but there was a point, long ago, where Yahoo was pretty darned useful. I think the point where the site boned the fish was with those "pop under" ads circa 2001. That was the moment where they said 'We don't respect our customers, we're going to get a nickel out of you any way we can, too bad if you don't like it'. Not surprisingly, Google surged ahead around this time. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on November 20, 2009, 12:03 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
