get rid of Motley Fool and Seeking Alpha or at least give us an option
why can't we have a choice as to our newsfeed???
I want to decide who can post on my "News Feed" - some of the current contributors are pathetic
WTF... WHERE IS THE Edit Company News page on Yahoo! Finance? I WANT TO FILTER OUT GARBAGE LIKE "WALL ST CHEAT SHEET"
After using Yahoo finance for well over a decade, I feel forced to try another service.
It is clear yahoo intends to leave the news feed polluted with trash. It is not hard to put back a feature that existed for years.
It used to be I could decide what went in the newsfeed---now it's half spam
Half the time the articles arent correct, and there's no discussion on the articles anyway. They just post poorly written, 200 word blurbs, and then ask you to sign up. Its spam.
I have search and search all over the place and cannot find how to unsubscribe to an RSS for a stock's company news. I have since sold the stock and want to unsubscribe. But the instructions to do so cannot be found.
Cheat Sheet is a deadend. It doesnt retun to anything!!Can I delete it????
Many of us have been complaining about Motley Fool articles. Today 10 out of 25 articles are by Motley Fool. Are you listening to us?
Seeking Alpha is a Fraudelant Scam and if Yahoo continues to allow their articles, I will sell all my Yahoo shares and close my Yahoo acc
Please let us choose what to see in the news.
allow us to remove Seeking alpha and other low quality sources.
And perhaps allow users to add topics or keywords such as " bond rate" or whatever my investing interests are, maybe "diabetes drug" you get the picture.
allowing users to add a couple of phrases or words could help make the content more directed to their tastes..
Have you considered making the "Filter Headlines" option actually work? Or perhaps just removing it altogether if you cannot?
I wish I could permanently get rid of articles by TheStreet.
Please add the filter headlines feature to the portfolio pages just like you have it for the individual security page
These sources aren't providing business news items. They seem more like pump & dump newsletters. One day they'll run an article pumping a stock, the next day they'll run an article panning the same stock. In other words, instead of real financial news, they just provide fodder for both the bulls and the bears. Not very helpful.
Yahoo finance allows me to edit the news sources at http://edit.finance.yahoo.com/e1a but unchecking all the entries for Motley Fool, does not do anything. This would be a great feature if it worked. I would also like to see Wall Street Cheat Sheet listed as an option so that news source could be eliminated from my stream.
You allow filtering news, however, you don't allow an option for CNBC.
Also, I would like to remove Daily Ticker as well.
If you want to get more serious investing news, I suggest going with Bloomberg.

Could you stop this stupid Motley, Seeking Alpha Wall street cheat etc. news on Yahoo. Its like a junk news. I have subscription to Wall Street Journal and Barrons but Yahoo has a best Finance portfolio. Please get rid of stupid Motley, Seeking Alpha Wall street cheat etc. and make more useful to readers.
I'm about to drop Yahoo as home page also, the Motley foo influence has become much to pervasive in the news feed and I'm sick of it

What does yahoo get paid to push Seeking Alpha garbage....must be enough to buy your integrity

Seeking alpha is just hacks blogging not news worthy at all. Why call it headlines, just make a junk blog section and stick SA and MF under that
when you click on the X on the homepage, i want the gd thing to give me the option of removing all stories from Motley Fool - NOT about Disney or Microsoft or whatever the **** the actual opinion piece was from. MOTLEY FOOL IS NOT NEWS - LET US FILTER IT THE SAME WAY WE CAN FILTER OUT EVERYTHING ELSE.

...We are removing the ability to shortlist Finance News providers in order to overhaul and improve the experience...
PLEASE, it has been 11 weeks, and now 90% of the "news" is the pollution from Motley Fool. For the love of God (and your own stock), please give us the option to kill Motley Fool!!!
80% of my tech news article on my home page are garbage motley fool financial ads. its disgusting. I would love to be able to get actual tech news and not just anti microsoft/android pro apple BS fake news the fool pumps out to get subscribers for financial services. engadget, verge, mashable. get a real tech news provider!
Dear Y! Product Support,
Your move was the opposite -- please *GIVE* us the option to HELP us overhaul and improve the experience. Are you in some cash contract with these poor quality bloggers that forces Yahoo! to force their **** upon us?
get rid of motley fool. what are you waiting for?????

I am moving to Google finance-- I'm sick of Motley Fool's over marketed garbage. It's like reading Cramer without the screaming but with the same agenda to keep you consuming a POV -- which is usually superficial and directed to selling subscription services. Adios after 15 years on Yahoo.
I am moving to google finance.
Starting to hate Yahoo because they are cramming stupid, dumb and bland Motley Fool down my pie hole. What is in it for Yahoo to have such a death grip on this junk stream? Is it worth your Rep, Yahoo? Just about done with you too.
Hurry Up. I will stop using Yahoo as a way of getting news in the next month if the option to remove Motley Fool articles isn't provided to me.
Still waiting for this to happen. My newsfeed is full of garbage "Motley Fool CAPS" and "Seeking Alpha" articles written by unqualified college students.
I, like others here, prefer to read articles written by professional journalists with senior editors overseeing their efforts. Sources like AP, Reuters, Fortune, and Forbes are notable examples of this. Seeking Alpha and Motley Fool are not.
Yahoo! should study Google Finance and take a cue off of their newsfeeds, which are much better. I am about ready to port my stock listings over.
RE IMPROVING THE EXPERIENCE
Make it fast - Motley Fool pains me!

Please give use an option to get rid of Motley Fool and Seeking Alpha.
SEEKING ALPHA PROVIDES A SERVICE, MOTLEY CREW DOESN'T
I agree - I do not want to receive anything from Jim Crammer or Motley fool. How can we opt out? maybe give us a choice?
I pity the fool who reads Motley Fool.
It's not even journalism. In fact, it's so annoying having to double-check the content provider before I click on an article that I'd rather just switch news sources.
Does 'shortlist' mean remove or selelect/deselect? Didn't Yahoo used to give users control over the newsfeeds that they subscribe to? Isn't it brain-dead simple to allow a user to configure their feeds (A simple checklist and filter with a tiny increase in the size of the user data record)? Does 'improve the experience' mean limit options?
I can imagine some people would actually like to read MF, and we need those people to dump our losers onto. But I personally would prefer uncurated news in my newsfeed. Yahoo, do you think you might be able to provide news in the newsfeed and not curate it on my behalf?
I know it's free and I really appreciate Yahoo Finance. Please remain relevant and useful.
