Complaints against Yahoo

Updated on December 7, 2007

Yahoo Eliminates Education Groups

I have been a member of several Yahoo groups since 2000.

Recently Yahoo has been shutting down groups and eliminating moderators emails of many education groups that offer free information to students and teachers. They have eliminated groups with over six years of history and 5,000 members.

Student interns of one these groups created a poster offering a free information guide and posted it to seven yahoo groups. This student created poster offers a free information guide created by students, for students and available through the free student yahoo group club.

The Yahoo student club newsletter was closed down, the News Newsletter was closed down, the job information newsletter was closed down, the student internship letter was closed down, the free English lessons newsletter was closed down, the Education consultant's newsletter and other moderators of other education groups that posted the notice have also suffered the same fate of being eliminated.

Apparently yahoo does not want anything that resembles an ad that competes for attention to the Yahoo bombardment of ads on the long suffering yahoo groups users. When one views the current Yahoo TOS there is no violation as all aspects of the the activity is non-commercial. Yahoo has actually violated their own TOS and years of Yahoo promises advertised daily.

Despite six customer feed back emails and several phone messages on their customer service system Yahoo has refused to send comments or inquiries prior to email or group elimination - send comments or responses after the eliminations. It is obvious that if you are a Yahoo moderator of an education group that offers anything free from one related Yahoo group to another Yahoo group then you will be eliminated - even if you fully comply with the current published Yahoo TOS.

The Yahoo group moderators emails were also eliminated. So if you are a group moderator and have years of teaching materials, free books, lists and resources posted to your groups or in your email accounts - all of your personal property can all be eliminated without so much as a warning and no response from Yahoo. This is tremendously damaging and especially difficult when you use your Yahoo email as identification to receive emails or logins for external internet websites, memberships or other community groups.

Yahoo has spent years marketing their safe - store it in your Yahoo email and group services. Yahoo acts as fiduciaries of your personal communication and stored information. Millions of well meaning individuals are lured into a false sense of security.

I would like to see US based lawyers form a class action lawsuit and sue Yahoo into compliance with basic landlord responsibilities. US landlords cannot take tenants property or dispose of it without offering it back to the tenants. Yahoo is an internet landlord and should have to comply with US law. The information in my email accounts and groups is mine and my members property and Yahoo is denying us access to our personal property.

When you actually look at the Yahoo groups it is very obvious that huge hypocrisy exists within the management of the Yahoo groups. Several Yahoo groups offer no content - they simply have links to Geocities pages that contain only Google ads. When you read the Google, Yahoo, Geocities TOS they are clear violations of Yahoo, Google and Geocities TOS. Yet these sites continue to exist and thrive within the yahoo groups. Does yahoo really need the pennies they earn from these casino, porn and work at home scam advertisers?

This is an appeal to yahoo management. Use common sense. Is Yahoo afraid of free student created work that helps other students. Keep the education groups that actually help group members alive and eliminate the real criminals.

If you actually want a list of shut down sites and current Google, Geocities Yahoo violators - I will send them to you.

email to peterscottcanadian (at) yahoo (dot) com

Updates

The email address for Peter Scott has been disabled by Yahoo. Even though the Email has never violated any Yahoo TOS - it has been disabled for daring to post a complaint against yahoo and to ask some embarrasing questions in yahoo answers. Even in its simplest form - this is the elimination of freedom of speech.

Feb 23, 2007 - Yahoo has refused to answer any emails to customer care or customer service since Feb 23, 2007 - that is 16 days and counting.

And today, March 8th, the Regular Violators of Yahoo and Geocities TOS still have their Yahoo groups up and running without content and stuffed with Google ads.

Now well into September 2007 there has been no responses from Yahoo. The only actions that occurred are when Google was given the URLs of the Yahoo groups and Geocities pages that violated the Google TOS. Magically these pages were cancelled within 24 hours.

I have had at least three separate emails from supposed insiders that all suggested the Yahoo Geocities TOS violators are all Yahoo employees and these yahoo employees eliminate the tattle tales that attempt to expose their scummy little rackets.

      Yahoo moderators of the "comments" are deleting comments without authority or reason! Yahoo better start auditing their moderators, they also are adding thumbs to comments before anyone gets a chance to read them. This is how you know they are doing it. I've had several comments totally deleted. I'm done like burnt bacon....erasing all shortcuts to yahoo on my computers!

      My account was cancelled because according to the mental giants that work at Yahoo - "I violated their TOS"? I don't even know what they are talking about. I have lost emails and folders that are valuable to me. I told them I think someone hacked my account - and they will do nothing about it. I think we should act on this together. I personally believe that someone deliberately did something to my account. One of the folders are letters from my deceased husband - I don't have any hard copies.

      My account is inaccessible for unknown reasons, but I suspect it was the work of a rogue moderator, unhappy with my skill in debunking RACIST COMMENTS on yahoo news. He repeatedly deleted my posts out of turn, I know this because totally non-abusive posts disappeared for seemingly no reason, as well as some USELESS replies I received from him. He called himself "Nick", & I am uncomfortable with the likes of this "Nick" character having any sort of administrative authority, as it constitutes a conflict of interests. I shudder to think what sort of outrageous appropriations such a ROGUE OPERATIVE is afforded, & how easily they can get away with it. I would also like to declare that the bulk of yahoo news comments are absolutely ridiculously racist, homophobic, sexist, obscene, anti-Semitic, anti-Islamic, rude, aggressive, childish, demented, reactionary, vexatious, classless, mentally unstable, twisted, neo-nazi, pro-war, pro-violence, threatening, unfathomably narcissistic self-important SEWAGE to be disposed of. & they have the audacity to accuse others of that which they are guilty of. Argue against these bigots, & you could well find your comments deleted by what is probably ROGUE MODERATORS representing a serious CONFLICT OF INTEREST. Racist comments always seem to get large amounts of thumbs up, while those that question this bigotry get mostly thumbs down. Comments that cast "non-whites" in a strongly negative light are particularly popular, as are both anti-Islamic & anti-Semitic; anti-immigrations remarks are generally viewed favourably, & I am pretty sure that a reply I made in which I stated that immigrants are often "white" caused a great deal of frustration for those intellectually deficient reactionary thugs, that were unable to respond with the usual "blacks are responsible for 99% of violent crime"/"pakis are all paedos"/"mohammed was a paedophile" offensive NONE-SENSE. I also wonder why "WHOOPS" is censored but "rape" isn't. Furthermore, I was trolled relentlessly by a childish buffoon named "Stuart" that used sock-puppet accounts to aid him in his "crusade" against me, uselessly replying to nearly everything I posted, with obscene sexual suggestions in a homophobic manner, often using the expression "8umholes". Of course, no disciplinary action was taken against him, despite numerous reports of abuse on his useless comments. I however received a stupid "warning" regarding the use of the expression "white devils", even though that was buried amongst a sea of blatant racism that no doubt was not warned, & received many thumbs up.

      Yahoo get rid of he booter in Yahoo Chess. We have all complained to you and you ignore us. There is men having cyber sex in the chess rooms. Where is the law? Booters have got to go. The main one they call Fire. He uses any names. Go to Allligator Tunnel or Amature Arena and you will see for yourself all the corruption in there. Yahoo should be able to trace this man IP and shut him down. He is from North Highland Scotland. Shame on Yahoo for not taking interest in their company.Many say Yaho does not care, I can see that and so do many others. Take intrest in your company and remove the filfth in there. Yahoo is headed down the drain. They say this man has been there for man many years!. And people have been turning him in all this time. They said Yahoo does not care. I have read tht about other things. What's it going to take? You have no way to contact you unless it is Yahoo webhost and they just tell you duh we cant help you with that. Yo have to got to our website and fill out th abuse form. re you kidding me??? We have all been doing this for ages and nthing happens? Wel sir Im sorry it is out of my hands and we don't deal with those issues. WHAT A JOKE YAHOO!!!! You have no backbone how do u survive? Someday it will catch up to you. Take some interest any Yahoo employee will do. Pass it on to your manager. Do something. there are pedifiles working these lobbys in chess and they are meeting with little girls. Yahoo don't tur your back it may be one of your children. Don't let this happen. We think the bootr may have something tdo with it. He gets rid of evryone but the little girls. I caught him talking to them when he thought everyone was gone. If you don't I hope the FBI takes you down!!!!

      I just deleted my Yahoo account because of my disgust with them. If you report racism, obscenities or child porn on Yahoo Answers, it gets ignored and the post remains. However, I got a violation notice for letting people know about an impersonator (with plenty of proof). I appealed and my appeal was rejected. Apparently, useful information is not allowed...

      Yahoo Answers is an insidious evil. I've had my email blocked for no apparent reason after I appealed a stupid violation that was only a helpful answer. This is the very reason that Yahoo is not my primary email. I've heard they can block an email for any reason and they know that will hurt someone. So, blocking my email had little effect, but I was enraged all the same. Every day, I see racist, sexual slurs, gay bashing, rude behavior of every sort and the commssion of crimes. Honest, well thought of answers get deleted while the racist narrow-minded crap goes on. I would like to start some sort of lobby against Yahoo - particularly Yahoo Answers. I know there are a lot of people who agree with my sentiments. There are message boards all over the internet. If Yahoo could actually see countless posts that are up on their website and it's publicized to the general public, I think they would have to make some changes. I'm talking about taking this to the media, writing articles, etc. Numbers speak volumes. Yahoo doesn't want to be known for racist, homophopic and intolence for religious views. Something has to be done. This may seem like an impossible task, well, so was the civil rights movement and many other causes after that. I have no idea where to start, but I'm mad as hell. If anyone has any ideas, let's consolidate our thoughts and take action.

      Yahoo comments deletes all non-racist comments from users. They only allow the comments from racists that promote division in our country. They are not interested in Unity of our people (the AMERICAN people). They have deleted all of my comments that promote equality, for years. They censor the good people and allow the evil to roam freely. Who's side are they on, now? Apparently the side that wants people to fight and harm each other and not the side that want liberty and justice for all.

      Yahoo is a heartless corporate entity.Aside from their censorship and inability to contact someone accountable(There is literally only a few departments that can be reached) And when you do rech them they send you off on a cyberspace merrry-go round.Only to have wasted time,and not too mention frustration.I BELIEVE YAHOO HAS SUNK TO A NEW LOW.WHILE CHECKING "MY LOCATIONS" SOMEHOW MY PERSONAL HOME ADDRESS CAME UP!! I NEVER CONSENTED TO OR EVER GAVE THAT OUT.THE ONLY WAY I CAN POSSIBLY THINK THEY GOT THIS WAS 1-READING E-MAIL, 2-SPYING SOMEHOW ON NON YAHOO FORM DATA, 3-USING MY STARTING POINT FROM YAHOO MAPS. ALL OF THIS SEEMS ILLEGAL TO ME. IT IS REALLY UNSETTLING TO THINK THEY HAVE NO ACCOUNTABILTY, AND NEVER RETURN COMPLAINT FORMS,FEEDBACK FROM SURVEY RESULTS,ETC...THEY BORDER ON A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE. LOOKING AT IT FROM A PARANOID VIEW,ARE THEY COLLECTING INFO FOR OTHER REASONS? LIKE CREATING A DOSSIER ON PEOPLE.ONE COULD ONLY IMAGINE WHY.PERHAPS THEY SELL THEM TO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES?

      Yahoo is as dumb as its name states. They do close accounts down. I don't think you can complain anywhere about it unless you go through something like state corporation commission, licensing, etc. However, (this is why I say dumb they are) they are risking loosing readers big time. Any social media specialist will tell you that web environment is not static anymore. People want to contribute to the web. Consequently, only those media sources that allow easy registration/posting/rating can capture audiences that constantly evolve. Otherwise, you lose them!

      I did not want to upgrade to the most recent Yahoo mail version so kept declining and declining and declinging to do so upon log-in. Eventually I was forced to upgrade or was not allowed to log into my account so I had to give up Yahoo Classic Mail.

      Right after doing the mandatory upgrade my account got hacked by three different people and spam sent out using my username. For over 10 years I never had the problem with Classic Mail. Coincidence?

      An "Upgrade" entails having more advanced security features, etc. but this new mail was a downgrade for me, Yahoo. And that's not even the worst of it, the worst part is that as of November 9th you stopped taking account abuse complaints for the new "upgraded" system. Strange and unacceptable.

      My Yahoo E-mail account got hacked into by three different people, two from countries outside of the US, and one from the state of Washington.

      Yahoo's solution is to change your password and a few other things. I did everything it advised to do as well as deleted my cookies but the person from Washington is still logging into my account.

      Internet Explorerr's IP is based out of the state of Washington but this person is loggin in on days I'm not using my computer. THERE IS NO MEANS OF CONTACTING YAHOO WHEN YOUR ACCOUNT IS STILL BEING COMPROMISED/HACKED AFTER DOING EVERYTHING YAHOO SAYS TO DO TO PREVENT IT.

      I am also not able to set my default location for some reason. I have no default location and every time I type mine in and click "save" it doesn't save it. WHY IS THERE NO WAY TO CONTACT YOU ABOUT THIS YAHOO?

      WHY I AM NOT ABLE TO SET MY DEFAULT LOCATION AND THEN WHEN PEOPLE COMPROMISE MY ACCOUNT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO DETECT THAT. WHY CAN'T THERE BE A FUNCTION THAT ALLOWS ME TO DENY ANY IP's OTHER THAN MY OWN FROM ACCESSING MY ACCOUNT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION? WHY DON'T YOU AT THE VERY LEAST HAVE A FEATURE THAT NOTIFIES ME WHEN MY ACCOUNT HAS BEEN COMPROMISED FROM AN IP IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?? I NEVER GOT A NOTIFICAITON.

      I send out Self Defense lessons to 480 clients (not strangers) therefore it is not spam, these people are waiting for their emails from me every month!Yahoo blocked my emails as "suspicious activity". I tried to contact Yahoo to no avail. In the end I solved my problem by opening a Gmail account, I find Gmail way more consumer friendly than yahoo. I advise strongly against Yahoo!

I can't get emails in my business account to open up and it is causing me problems. Does any one know how to really get in touch with Yahoo support without going through their run around system?

      Thank you,

      Confused Person 6 years ago

      I lost access to my yahoo account on Thursday. Its now Sunday and Its still "suspended" without reason except I reported a password phishing scam to them. After being on the phone with several yahoo tech support people, I'm down to only being able to send an email, no real person to talk to in that department. I'm the one that believes in reporting scams to keep other innocent people from falling into to the trap. I don't report post that people make only scams, In return I get my account suspended and no one can tell me why or get me to someone that can un-do their mistake. So now I have to go and change my email address to not only another provider but there are business contacts that may have my email addy that I don't know theirs. So I sit and wait, AGAIN, yes again, this has happened before in the past. I have learned my lesson, don't report anything to yahoo because its not appreciated. Your reward...they suspend your account and give you access to it when they feel good and ready to!

      Never been a yahoo member or customerr..

      3 years ago, out of the blue, I started receiving mails and announcements from hundreds of yahoo groups.. Added to new ones every single day..

      After one year of fighting with yahoo, I am promised that my data will be removed from their system and my mail never able to be added to groups.

      Nothing actually changes, then 3 weeks ago I get not 1, not 2 but 195 IDENTICAL mails from yahoo informing me that I have now been with them for 3 years and they want to offer me upgrades and the likes.

      I send them one mail, asking them to honor their word and publicly announce in big letters on their site that Yahoo is illegally collecting, storing and using random peoples personal data without permission or consent.

      14 days pass, and I am warned that if I continue to spam them, I will be reported and face jailtime according to US laws.

      Not only do they state that I have never been promised anything, but I am obviously also one of the worlds largest and most offensive spammers.. (with a maximum of 2 mails sent each week?)

      Yahoo is going down.. One way or another.

      Their stupidity and irresponsible behavior has reached new heights!

      I demand this company removed from the face of the earth PERMANENTLY!

      Yahoo deleted my account - I lost years of emails, email addresses, and as I don't have an internet connection at home, I don't have copies of emails or email addresses, I lost contact with everyone I contacted by email.

      All yahoo would tell me is that I breached there TOS and to get legal advice. Yahoo won't tell me what of their TOS I have breached or why (I did ask)

      The advice I got was that Yahoo have to tell me what I have done to breach the TOS - but no further response from Yahoo.

      Surely I must be able to sue them for failure to give a reason, or given that they have not given a reason, assume that is because Yahoo doesn’t have a reason and they have failed to provide the service they agreed to - and wrecked my life! (but cutting me off for all my contacts)

      (extremely pissed off and despondent)

      I, too, just had my Yahoo account canceled after 15 years. I did nothing wrong! I've lost 15 years of e-mails. They will not be honest with me. Well...I will not give up. I will goto their corporate office if I have to. Meanwhile, I will be calling their corporate office every day:

      (408)349-3300

      Select option 4, then option 1 (legal department) Then dial "0" for the operator. If they don't answer, keep dialing "3" until someone does, then ask for one of the following people on this list:

      http://pressroom.yahoo.net/pr/ycorp/management.asp...

      I also filed a complaint with my state attorney general's office. It is worth it because Yahoo has to answer them by law.

      We need to sue Yahoo because they have to be breaking the law...why else would they have fake departments (the "abuse" department you can't speak to).

      Any other helpful info would be appreciated

      I have been a member of Yahoo since 2000 as well. I use to use Yahoo's Answers on a daily bases. Why use to? To put it nicely, Yahoo staff and management is ran by aload of hypercritical jackasses that can't wait for the day for someone to sue them. But Yahoo has so much enjoyment in playing the 3 monkeys, no doubt they would still make out they don't know what I'm talking about long after a law suit. But since they know it cost anywhere between 100,000-250,000 to file one against them, they will keep right on playing the 3 monkeys until satan's palace freezes over.
