Hello everyone this will be my first real post. It is great to be a member of ATS. Mods please excuse me if this is in the wrong location.
Yahoo has recently been deleting many of my posts to news threads.
Recently while posting a comment on a news thread on yahoo, I looked back and noticed that it had just deleted itself. After trying again the results were the same. At this point I decided to check back to see if any other comments had been deleted. After going through the last several months a pattern has emerged that has literally sent chills down my spine. It would seem from what I can tell, any comments I've posted referencing police brutality or corruption in the United States Justice system have just vanished.
Has anyone else here experienced anything like this?
Your comments please.

Yes, I have had posts deleted from the questions. It was explained to me that when more than one person reports the post that the automatic system deletes it. That very well can be abused.

Noted from the Political candidate section, that "forum gangs" or other would report anyone who didn't align with what they believe(even though the sections were filled with trolling by the ones doing the reporting) and the reports went through.

Similarly with Yahoo Answers but more telling; While sharing the ills of the candidates by answering questions- It was observed that my answers, while unknown to me as they had shown up as view-able to others on my account(someone else seen it and shared it that they cannot see it) were not even open for the public to see.

Yahoo can delete any or all of our posts.They are a private busimness. You will find that is the case here, as well.

But they dont here . As long as it is not a violation of T%C.
Regarding multiple people reporting the post , if it does not violate decorum , it doesnt matter how many , it still stands.And there is no "automatic deletions" (as far as I know)
I am posting proof of that.....

I'm reading the OP as a complaint of censorship.

Deleting content that violates particular guidelines is much different than deleting opinions simply because one doesn't agree with that viewpoint.

Thank you, that explains a lot about the world we live in.
Unfortunatly I feel like my voice is much smaller today than it appeared to be yesterday. If They can just delete out anything they don't like how are we to fight back?

No problem. I may be able to garner up proof(screen shots), if anyone cares, but it was some time ago. After all it's Yahoo who eventually(after some opposition) caved into the NSA's demands. Take it for what it is.

Yes I feel like this is censorship. For one I never express violence or racism or as far as I can tell any unacceptable views other than what obviously, yahoo finds offensive .

An orwellian nightmare perhaps.

Simple, don't deal with yahoo, Google, Facebook, etc. It really isn't hard to cut them loose.

Cheers - Dave
