1. Some report they cannot open their email spam folders
to retrieve messages incorrectly sent there.
2. Others report difficulty in changing their passwords.
3. New owners in some cases are randomly created for some Yahoo groups and old owners removed without notification to original owner.
4. In some cases Yahoo group posts are being truncated at 10,000 characters instead of 60,000
5. Socialist, women's rights, animal rights, peace, environment, abolition and other Yahoo groups find their membership 'restricted'.
6. Pornography is accumlating on many sites while
owners and moderators of the sites find their deletion tools not working. The concierge team says they do not have the power to remove pornographic or other commercial spam.
7. Unlike many websites, Yahoo has not given a 'scroll' option to members which converts all posts into a single scroll.
The 'expand' function which converted 15 posts into 1 scroll has been eliminated.
8. Advertising has more than quadruled. An ad is inserted every 4th or 5th post on Yahoo groups and there are new ads on the top and right side of the page.
9. Spiritual groups are subjected to ads with virtually undressed models. Animal rights groups have animal flesh ads inserted etc.
10. There is much less human contact with staff over problems.
11. Yahoo groups no longer allow forwarding of posts.
12. Yahoo no longer allows employees to work from home.

The following is a link about a 2009 problem, but porn and spam have accelerated since Mayer took the CEO position.
