I no longer see comments on the Yahoo News. It says “Our goal is to create a safe and engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions. In order to improve our community experience, we are temporarily suspending article commenting”
Why Yahoo disabled comments section on Yahoo News articles?
For the obvious reason- most comments were written by ignorant and racist. I think Yahoo should close it permanently. The comments section do not any good except helping keyboard warriors to unload their rubbish thoughts.
I think Yahoo saw its writing on the wall after what Facebook and Google had gone through.
There had already been complaints on http://www.change.org and other platforms and I think yahoo has done the right thing to disabled the comments.
