Guidelines for comments on Yahoo

We'd love your help in keeping Yahoo a fun and safe place to communicate with others. Before you post a comment, consider following a few guidelines so everyone has a good experience.

 Don't lose your Yahoo Account - Yahoo reserves the right to remove any comment that doesn't comply with our guidelines or Terms of Service, and to terminate a Yahoo Account (email included) for a violation.

Best practices

  • Be considerate and respectful of your fellow posters—this is a public forum.
  • Write concisely and use 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.

Yahoo is not responsible or liable in any way for comments posted by its users.
