When I read political news on yahoo's front page, lately it will not give me an option to reply, yet when I watch any other youtube video not related to politics, it allows me to post a comment. I guess supporting RP gets ya black listed. Is this happening to anyone else?

once i replied to one of their articles, and it was never posted...almost as if they read the comments themselves and post the ones that are convinient to themselves..

when i looked at the comments on the article they had all been posted 7+ hours ago...and they were ALL similar in responses...

Actually, yahoo news uses algorithms to show you the content, that it thinks that is more towards waht you click on first, in the past.

So some of it might be edited to suit what the algorith matches to your pattern of response, meaning what links you click on, or in which politial affiliation you seem to side more with.

Also this is the case with FB and others.

(usually Because its nonsense; but a few, really hit hard with, and make me regret not copy paisting it to a text file)

Wait....Maybe I'm missing something here. But you first said you couldn't reply to a yahoo article then said you could reply to a YouTube video? What does one have to do with the other?

It is the same thing with mainstream media as well. They let you comment to gossip articles about celebrities, fashion news but not for real news stories that actually deserves to be discussed.
This again shows how our media is controlled.

My guess was that he meant a video that yahoo linked to in some article, but i could be wrong.
The ops post is definitely very vague.

I have been avoiding anything with the word 'yahoo' in the URL for several years now. They hosted several of my early websites/domains but I closed them all down because of the horrible customer service. When I tried having the domains transferred, the delayed and haw'd and messed it up so bad that I finally just let them expire.

My biggest grip is the DISQUS commenting format that so many website are latching onto. This third-party tool is probably the worst thing to free speech commenting in web history. It is designed from the bottom up to be user unfriendly and make extended discussions almost impossible. Censoring is its main attribute... with Fox News being the most talented at using it.

We do have to remember that 99.9% of the internet is private property so... our rights extend only as far as the owners of the digital landscape in question want to allow. There are almost no publicly owned websites available where your right to speak has to be respected.

In a way... that should teach us how to be better communicators but on the other, it really renders the concept of free speech into something of a relic at times.
