Alphuck U, UP - 1 d 3 h ago

I was recently told by a Customer service tech for Vizio Tv's that Yahoo is now hosting the Youtube App built in to their smart TV"s and that Youtube has disabled their app on Vizio tv's that are as little as 3 to 4 years old depending on the model. Since Yahoo has started hosting the app on my smart TV the steaming has went to hell and they regularly throttle my speed down to nothing. I pay for 100mbps download speeds from my ISP but can barely pull 3.5 to 4 Mbps on Youtube with constant buffering and freeze ups. No it's not my WIFI or router. I'm hard wired on all my connections and understand about not running numerous devices at once.

I am surprised that the push to the mass public has been how wonderful this new technology is and yet it is more complicated, problematic and a pain in the ass than the last 100 years of advances. The new push to sell this half working untested garbage is the wave of the future and the only way to sell this crap is to make it break on purpose or render your latest purchase obsolete so you are forced to buy the latest and greatest to keep up with the Jones while they get filthy rich off all our stupid asses.

How is it that we all have accepted this financial rape by corporate America as the norm. Short of stopping using any electronics products period we are nearly completely locked out of any recourse measures. The customer service is all outsourced to foreigners who could give a shit about your issues that read from a script and are nothing more than a smoke screen anyway so the company can appear they care to sell more products.

It's all a scam anymore but it seems that the SCAM is the new reality. I would also like to ad that since Yahoo started hosting my Youtube app that they have taken the liberty of deleting my watch history at will to add insult to injury. My watch history is wiped clean almost weekly and recommends stuff I would never watch ever. I wonder if businesses and people that pay for advertising they assume targets a specific audience isn't targeted at all

If you can't report the news without your liberal, almost communist, spin and bias, then you need to get out of the news business!! You are only making the term "fake news" more real for us with every single headline you put on your home page. None of my friends and family and colleagues believe your articles. We are looking for a different email service/home page because of your socialist propaganda you call "news".

I cant log into my email, the app updated and now asked for a backup email or phone number. I rescently changed my number and the email is invalid, so that being said how do i get passed that when it always asks for a code?

Like others, I am unable to get into my email account. it all keeps rerouting to att even though the accounts are not merged and my yahoo account is very much active. there is no way to contact anyone at yahoo to let them know or to figure out how to fix this. Not even an error message from the system, just straight to att at every prompt for sign in, even the support pages.

Notice to Yahoo mail management:

What the F*** has happened to Yahoo mail?!

Trying to FORCE ones to pay by reducing all the feature, like setting number of lines shown at a time, determining the number selected by check boxes etc. etc. MAKING this functionally unusable for the DISABLE ..I am disabled senior!

CLASSICISM?! Yes, T. Jefferson, J. Kennedy, M.L.K., F. D. Roosevelt, and Orwell all AGREE! Our classism exist and DRIVEN by CORPORATISM

Yahoo, 98% is SPAM, local ads even worse hardly worth offering PAYMENT! But this aspect of CORPORATE FASCISM is now not even FREE?!

Being a poverty/disability advocate where fortunately Facebook and Google+ are still free! I have twelve groups/pages in FB, and blog on FB & Google both. BOTH this and your reply will be posted on all locations, as well as my immediate Huntington's groups for a possible class-action case.

So sad, seems lawsuits are the ONLY way to have a piece of the SO-CALLED, "American Dream" and while classism violates my right to the pursuit of my happiness THAT has to be a Supreme Court case Case for my disabilities, will be more immediate! http://www.facebook.com/1984.Big.Brother.Is.Watching/ https://www.facebook.com/OrwellsAnimalFarm/ http://www.facebook.com/Orwell.Geo/ https/www.facebook.com/Pres.Franklin.Roosevelt/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/Boycott.FOX.news/

This is the only place I can find to complain about a NEW Yahoo blunder! Four times in the last few days Yahoo has locked me out of one of my Yahoo email addresses. There was no reason to even lock me out one time! However, four times now I've let Yahoo send a password code to my cell phone. Each time I go to sign into this particular account, Yahoo's message is "Invalid password...." Heck NO it's not an "invalid password." I just input my latest password!!!!!! What the HECK is going on Yahoo???????

I have not received any emails to my inbox EXCEPT from Yahoo??? since 9/22/17. As all the others have said NO ONE is at Yahoo to help you. When you go online to fill out the form my issue isn't listed. I can send but not receive. I have had this account for 20 years. I pay yearly for a domain name. I am so done with them. I have spent countless hours changing to a new email address. I go green with my bills but now have to change all of that, insurance, homeowners, friends and relatives it's disgusting how they ignore their customers. Mr Amoroso SHAME ON YOU!

If you're so worried about it, why don't you fly to Washington, suck Trump's d*** and make him feel better? Only a Brain-dead Republitard moron such as yourself could have anything positive to say about this abomination of a President!

Hey IQ, U R a typical dumbass LIB-tard moron that swallows ... everything you hear from Comedy Central news and other news commentary spinster hacks. Use YOUR OWN BRAIN and quit swallowing the Kool Aid being poured from the biased media and Late Night talk show hosts looking for laughs and rating bumps from simpleton idiots who cannot think (or are way too lazy) to research the facts for themselves.

Yahoo is a corporation, unfortunately it is a corporation that has lost all touch with its client base, in two days they not only wiped out all of my Yahoo e-mail accounts because of overzealous and outrageous security measures but cost me several thousand dollars as a result of the lost data. I encourage everyone to join together and file a multi billion dollar lawsuit against Mr. Amoroso and his incompetent staff for putting us through all the crap I just read in the comments section. Offering a product with no customer support, no way to contact anyone for support, and expecting a group reply to solve the problem is incredibly stupid. Hit them where it hurts, sue the shit outta them to make them do what their supposed to do. If I am and anyone interested in joining in can contact me at my G-mail address since I will never have another yahoo one (hidden). I sincerly hope Mr. Amoroso actually takes the time to have somebody read these things because he seems pretty cluelless when it comes to running an effective service.

I am very disappointed at the customer service and help center options. I have been with Yahoo a long time, never had a problem and was,always able to change my options, password and number without a problem. I am so desperate that I even reported myself to yahoo as spam. I need someone to please help me get into my account. I can only get through one browser but I am afraid it will lock me out. Been trying for 3 days now. HELP!

I contacted customer services concerning not able to get into my account on desktop or mobile device and was advised by technician that he had blocked my account because he did not like me. I truly hope the call was recorded and this was at approximately 5:25 PM on this date.This technician was very ,very rude, sounded he, was angry and wanted to talk to me as if I was a child. This was very, very bad customer service and hope I am able to continue to use my yahoo account; (hidden). I am very unsatisfied was this technician's action. Chester Young, (hidden) and thank you for your help.

Was anyone else "grandfathered in" to a locked yearly rate for being a loyal Yahoo e-mail subscriber? Then now told to pay much higher fees than the grandfathered in fees that were promised to you?
