Can't post on Yahoo comments

Anyone else have this issue? I tried using chrome and IE, no luck. Very strange

*No "ban" notice or anything either, **bleep**, nothing i post is THAT childish or vulgar. No matter, i thought if you were banned it would alert you in some fashion. My guess is that their system is not working right at the moment. No big deal, just want to see if others are having the issue

Re: Can't post on Yahoo comments

I keep getting sparatically shadow banned on Yahoo Answers and Yahoo articles comments section.  I've even tried two different networks/modems.  Sometimes they shadow ban question marks, sometimes links, sometimes not.  It's not making much sense.  Shadow banning has become a huge problem on the internet.  I'm also experiencing it at Youtube and Dell.com tech support forum.

Yes.  All of a sudden, today, I can't even click to sort by "latest" comments, nor can I view my comments history.   But it appears that I can still comment.  I've tried clearing cookies and history, flushed DNS cache, nothing, not working.   I think yahoo comments is broken.

To the previous commenter 40m ago, I am also experiencing that problem. Might be a server issue on their part.

Re: Can't post on Yahoo comments

Yes!  I've had days at a time when I'm unable to post on *certain* stories, while I can easily on others.  I likewise post nothing crude or vulgar, and unlike the unfiltered hords that widely and freely post childish insults, I don't engage in name-calling.  

 

When unable to comment on a particular story, I've tried relaunching my browser, switching browsers, rebooting my computer, and waiting hours before attempting the same post again - all to no avail.

 

Yahoo?  You listening?

Re: Can't post on Yahoo comments

Yesterday could not comment on yahoo stories, no notice as to why not..!!  My last comment at Yahoo went like this:  "Moochele has a pretty face on the body of a NFL football player, while Melania has a beautiful face on a gorgrious body and accent sounds ***bleep*** to many men"......That was it...!!!!   The top comment threads were bashing Melania in all the unbelievable crudest of ways possible, yet there was one commenter who took offense to mine and Yahoo does not leave any reasonable  path as to how to resolve a matter about commenting on their stories.  I've had a Yahoo account for 18 years, I feel violated, I cannot describe the frustration I'm feeling trying to make contact with Yahoo to fix a wrong,  ATM who did this wrong is not the matter , it's just wrong in how Yahoo reacts without a due process....!!!
