"Yahoo has moved to curb unwanted advertising on the message boards in its finance section, taking up the delicate task of policing a heavily trafficked area without appearing to censor rivals.
The Santa Clara, California-based portal giant this week initiated three steps to block what it calls "repetitive postings of the same message across numerous message boards," according to Mike Riley, senior producer of Yahoo Finance. More commonly known as spam, such posts--generally unsophisticated commercial pitches--are typically unpopular among Net users, though many defend the practice.
Yahoo is blocking access to Web addresses advertised in spam messages, closing the user accounts of individuals judged to be "spammers," and deleting spam posts throughout its message boards, Riley said. The company acted in response to "a large number of complaints," he said.
The move has sparked controversy among those newly frozen out of Yahoo Finance. Users have complained of censorship... "
Where do you get the information that Yahoo is censoring only conservatives?
Plenty of my libertarian/Goldwater Republican posts have been deleted in the past.
Your ignorance is plainly visible for all to see.
Yahoo has a computer program that attempts to identify poster spamming the boards and deletes their messages, even if they are using multiple aliases.
Many messages disappear because they fit the profile of spam messages.
In general, the more you post, the more likely the program will identify you as a spammer and start deleting your posts, particularly ones with similar content.
They certainly are not paying people to manually review and delete messages on a real time basis.
The Tea Baggers sure do like to whine a lot. Just look at them wasting their time posting on this message board, when they could be spending it doing so real work for their local Republican and/or Tea Party organization and have an actual impact on things.
But that wouldn't be as much fun as whining on message boards.
What a bunch of lazy putzes....
Be sure to put lots of salt and butter on that steak.
Come on drstone, did you miss those parts of the Bible?
"the gov. Should govern according to the constitution."
So you support gay marriage as a basic right under the14th amendment?
So, inother words, you are saying that you've been touched by the President?
He's like most teabaggers... they don't mind laws being broken as long as it 's what THEY want. Their sense of jurisprudence only appears when it's somrthing they dislike.
As falcons has just shown in his posting.
Here's a few verses drstone apparently has forgotten:
bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
1 Peter 2:23
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
Apparently he is not smart enough to take his own advice.
