Too many ads everywhere one looks. How long until adblockers no longer work?

I have Yahoo mail, and have had to change my password 5-6 times over the last two months. (They seem to have a 'timer" on Goggle chrome saved PW's). Since I can never remember the PW I am forced to change. Then I have to change my smart phone over to the new PW-wot a hassle!
I also have a G-mail account, but have been using Yahoo for 17 years for business and personal, along with numerous stored docs. Afraid it's going to be a large deal to change...

Not yahoo specific but they are a big offender: The rise of the infernal pest of sponsored blogs and Taboola-like networks "One weird trick is making these americans rich"

It's making the web more unusable with every passing day. Hoping somebody takes up the challenge and creates an information-rich web that can be searched separately.

Yes, this is a big problem with Yahoo.... but as you say, a good number of sites are doing this...

I remember clicking on a story and at the bottom ALL of the recommended stories were from one of these sites...

OK... another Yahoo rant....


I have been using Yahoo finance for years... and usually when they make a change I can live with what they do or adjust enough to get what I want...


BUT, not this time (at least so far)....

When I look at my holdings, the old way is gone and what they replace it with is a jumble of numbers.... it used to be laid out nice and neat... but now they appear to let you put in many different lot and give a total... IIRC, it was a year or so ago when they took away the ability to HAVE different lots... but even if you did you could tell it to ignore lots and it was nice and neat.....



I hope they fix this soon.... so far I do not like any of the other major sites, but as Yahoo keeps getting worse the others start to look better....
