Why am I anonymous in comments section?

Why am I anonymous in comments section?

I'm logged into Yahoo. The name at top pf the Yahoo page says "Ed." The nickname in my profile says "Ed". Yet when post a comment in the Comments Section, I always appear as "Anonymous"? Is there a seperate sign in for Comments? Can't be if it allows me to post? Call me what you like but not Anonymous!

My comments suddenly began appearing as "anonymous". And all my older comments also changed to "anonymous". I'm curious how I'll show up here, so I clicked to reply. I was already signed in, but was asked for password again. Then asked to complete my profile with a "name". I entered "r1904" before getting this comment-window. Now I'll click "Post" and see the result.

Ok, comes up "r1904" here, but still showing "Anonymous" on other boards like Yahoo Finance.

Same here.... I believe it has to do with the new Oath terms of service, I can't even get to the agree to page, makes me log in and then I get some generic news page.... super lame, now I'm anonymous after using Yahoo for 20 years..... lame there are no answers.

Same here. I had a rocket mail account that is even older than Yahoo itself... 
I use to have a name but now its all Anonymous. 
I can not even add a name to my account, it doesnt alow me to type anything under name.

Solved: I was forced to download firefox on my phone, where I signed into the regular yahoo sign on page where I went to my profile up top and was able to finally type in my alias for the finance chatrooms I frequent.... my laptop internet explorer and firefox would not work, my phone stock browser would not work.... I did solve this issue finally by downloading firefox for android and now I am no longer anonymous.... thanks me!

It's called censorship.
