MR. YAHOO - Please clean up the Yahoo Messageboards
Please to the right thing! Protect our children and others from reading the obscenities posted on the Boards.
The posters of this material also BULLY those who oppose them. Please put an end to it. It's under your control.
Most of the posters on these boards are either institutional traders, retail traders or paid 'PR" shills from India or elsewhere. These shills are paid by Wall Street vermin to bash or pump a stock. Sometimes they do both.
Many of these posters of are fold mouthed, SFB, greedy, AHOLES.However, if YHOO would take action to clean up their boards, the number of posts would crater lowering the amount they get from advertising fees.
Recent polls by YHOO found a high level of dissatisfaction by the people who use these message boards. Too bad YHOO's ad clients didn't read the results. Certain groups now appear to be putting pressure on YHOO to censor posts making racial or anti-gay slurs. FYI, it's a simple thing for YHOO to remove these posts or censor the poster, but Mayer appears either too arrogant or too busy reading her press clippings to take any action.
Instead of being a vehicle to discuss investing, 90% of the posts are either about politics, short traders trying to instill fear in retail investors, long traders pumping the stock, or just psychopaths acting out.
