Report abusive article comments

When you're using Yahoo, you can report abusive comments you find on news articles, answers, and reviews by following the steps below.

  1. Sign in to Yahoo.
  2. Mouse over (or tap) the comment in question.
  3. Click the Report Abuse icon Report abuse flag.
  4. If prompted, select Report Abuse or the best option available, and enter a description of the violation you're reporting.
  5. Click Report or Submit.

Tip - We'll fully investigate an abuse report. However, we don't send out notifications about the outcome of our investigation.

While the above steps don't apply to all Yahoo products, almost anywhere you can post comments or photos on the Yahoo network you'll find a link nearby that says either Report Abuse, Report or Flag.
