    CENSORSHIP is 'alive and well' on the Yahoo! Finance Message Boards - Yahoo! advise members of the following:

    "What improvements would you like in Yahoo! Finance Message Boards? Please send us feedback." Please check the feedback area for my following point being made on CENSORSHIP.

    My reply:

    Yahoo .... Thanks for this opportunity to strongly suggest that you have a flawed policy on Posts being "deleted", on your chat boards.

    The daily "censorship" of posts to the LOOK board needs attention from the highest level .... My three posts today (are below), so let's now see just how long they last?

    This is costing Yahoo "impression" revenues besides being good, old fashioned censorship that goes agains the very core of "freedom of expression"....

    IF your own means of (the TOU button) having posts deleted is FLAWED, then fix it?

    SHAREHOLDERS - Be aware... 25 minutes ago Shareholders should take note that certain posts containing relevant (& important) information continue to be "DELETED" by the pair of "fascist minded" GRUBS here, who watch over this board like hawks.

    So much for Hillary Clinton telling China of their dastardly "censorship" and how they should clean up their draconic ways.

    And we get to celebrate "Australia Day" over here tomorrow? Whaaaaaaaaat???

    It would appear that what Looksmart's own Gill Brown has to say, is not considered as being "fit" for consumption here on the Looksmart board.

    "Best we look in our "own" backyards, me thinks... For censorship is very much "alive and well"... onestockrock

    How sad it that? And these kind of people are entrusted to decide what is right or, wrong to read in your life? More fool the people, I say. And if the cap fits, then wear it....And more fool to Yahoo! for allowing such a blatant form of censorship going on, on it's site.



    I simply post an opinion and as a LOOK shareholder am not at all about the winning of any popularity contest, with my opinion expressed. I simply wish to retain as a member, my right to express such opinions.

    Please. Can you help?


    ps; It is not good enough to see posts being deleted, simply because ..."we don't like him and the things he says"
