Yahoo Singapore Blocks Readers From Commenting

I love to read and comment on Yahoo articles particularly Singapore politics and quite few weeks ago, I believe you may have seen this message, “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”. I tried to believe that they are just doing upgrade to ensure we have better experience but after a weeks, it remained blocked.

I therefore suspected they probably been forced to block comments and I decided to visit Yahoo Taiwan to see if they have the same blocking issue. I realised Yahoo Taiwan still allow readers to comment on their articles.

It looks like they are progressing removing alternate medias so that we will only hear the right things. So what is going on? An invisible hand behind the scene? To ensure readers don’t hear the negativities, the truths or the complaints?

  • Sluts:

    Many websites delete comments critical of the govt. Some will block the IP address from posting. They are all afraid.

    Yes, I noticed that too. Very disappointed with Yahoo news. Used to be a vibrant platform to hear genuine alternative views on social issues, now it’s a dead town only to read and can’t comment. Silencing of the lamb is in progress.

  • Ah Ha:

    Yahoo is a very much “Left,” and definately “WOKE” news org. They started this no comment thing in the US where they are heavily, very, very heavily Pro Biden and the way things were going Jo was taking a licking in the Yahoo comments soooo they stopped the comments in their biggest market to appease the woke cancel crowd. Yahoo has been loosing market share and quad zillions of dollars over the last 15 years and have bowed to the masters of the left purse strings. Now I realize singapore is not considered Left by any means but bowing to the powers in a small pin hole of the overall global market makes sense when it can be justified as they are cutting the voice of the sane most everywhere else.

  • Went to Japan:

    Yahoo is popular because it publishes Singapore Political News that many locals read and then comment their anger.

    And these comments have grown exponential that the invisible hand plus their IBs cannot control and feels that it will impact the fake image their use their regulated media to portray.

    So to read the right things and not allow any comments, the free speech and anger cannot only be directed to very few alternate website. It looks like a concerted effort to become like China where everything is regulated to look as if the govt is doing a great job as there very few and no negative comments.

    Yahoo has succumbed to the invisible hand, perhaps they are paid handsomely like SMRT FB….

    It knew it was a matter of time Yahoo is forced to block the comments section.

    And the PM pledged to build a democratic society?

    Yet another proof he’s a hypocrite.

  • Great Asia:

    Michelle Lim,

    Asians are rebutting their fake or biased news. They also blocked comments from their US Yahoo news.

    Western sheep are starting to learn the truths about China, Iran and other parts of the world.

    They will probably allow commenting again after the Presidential Election of the US.

    Ha ha ha!

  • Harder Truths:

    Communist regimes use this tactic as a standard practice. Why are you surprised? After the 60% showing they have to stop alternative media.

    It is something the old dead despot never dreamed of. His vision was total control of what citizens saw, read and spoke.

    All such arrogant leeders require instant and unquestioning obedience. Electronic media is one weapon for the people they can never control again, no matter how much they try.

  • Threat To Humanity:

    The evil hidden hand of CCP is rejuvenated with the greedy sly opportunistic hidden hand from sillypore, where amoral atheist kleptocrats, silenced critics, raped the rule of law and subvert democracy to hold on to power and enrich themselves.

  • TRE is blocked:

    I notice when I start to type my comments on TRE, after few minutes later this page will be replaced by a Singtel advertisement. Whatever I had typed, all disappears.

    I suspect PAP government is doing all this to suppress alternate views by net citizens, after losing election badly.

    TRE Editor please comment if this is true.

    Tech: TRE has no such ad tags, maybe grab a screenshot and email me?

    Response :I do often encountered a similar situation as poster” TRE is blocked”. What advertisement that keep popping out after I type some sentence is something I never bothered to notice. I took it as an advertisement, enlarge my screen and just closed off the advertisement and most of the time,it works and continue my typing and posting. And my posts don’t often get posted too because TRE is blocking my factual posts some times.

    The then gov and NTUC encourage us to support our national line. Ask any economist, the more overtime you work, MAKES YOU CHEAP !!!

    NOW, AFTER 40 YEARS, NOL WAS GONE !!!
    ” FAILED ”

  • Suckersl:

    The powers are conditioning people to reject anything perceived to be toxic, negative and hateful in or from people and the general public are buying it.

    Your commentaries, not aligned with mainstream ideogy or theology, will be labeled as the above or such.

    Politics(tussle for power and influence) and the supreme economy(buying and selling of your soul) are behind the shroud of darkness over cities, especially in Asia(in particular China).

    Politics and the root of all evil, if not uprooted, will be your funeral or future generation will bear the full ramifications, and then process repeated, till curse is broken.
