Guidelines for commenting on Yahoo

We'd love your help in keeping Yahoo a fun and safe place to communicate with others, so please consider a few guidelines before posting a comment.


Best practices

  • Be considerate and respectful of your fellow posters—this is a public forum.
  • Use standard writing style and punctuation to help others understand you.

What not to do

  • Don't post profanity, obscenities, abusive language, or otherwise objectionable content.
  • Comments shouldn't harass, abuse, or threaten anyone's personal safety or property, make false statements, defame, or impersonate someone else.
  • Don't post phone numbers, email or mailing addresses, or credit card information.
    • This helps protect yours and others' personal info.
  • Don't copy and post others' material, trademarks, or intellectual property—it's illegal.
    • This includes cutting and pasting content from other websites (comments should be your own original thoughts).
  • Posting HTML, viruses, or other malicious code is a violation of the Yahoo Terms of Service.

  Keep in mind: Yahoo reserves the right to refuse or remove any comment that doesn't comply with these guidelines or the Terms of Service and to terminate a Yahoo Account (including email) for a violation. Yahoo is not responsible or liable in any way for comments posted by its users.
