How to report abuse on Message Boards
Message Boards are non-moderated, public forum for discussion on a variety of topics. Even though we do not moderate the boards, if we are alerted to a problem by a user, we will investigate the problem and determine if it violates our Terms of Service. We also encourage users to make use of our Ignore User Filter.
If a message violates our Terms of Service, then we will take appropriate action. Offensive, libelous, or other posts that potentially violate our Terms of Service are investigated and handled on a case-by-case basis.
Abusers of our Terms of Service might be subject to having their posts removed and/or having their posting privileges and Yahoo! ID revoked.
While Yahoo! will review messages that are called to our attention, this doesn't guarantee that we'll remove the messages or that we'll revoke posting privileges.
Yahoo! reserves the right to remove any post that doesn't fall within our terms and conditions. Yahoo! also reserves the right to revoke the posting privileges of members who consistently abuse our Terms of Service.
With this in mind, if you find an offensive or threatening message on Message Boards, please click the Report Abuse link found near the bottom of every message on the site. You are sent to a form populated with the information necessary for Yahoo! to review the exact message you were reading when you clicked Report Abuse. Complete the rest of the form and click Submit.
