This Group Is Still In Blackout
- This Group Is Still In Blackout. Yahoo has not improved the latest
version of the their groups' program (got the bugs out) nor given to
groups the option to use the old version of the groups program.
- /Here is an example of one deficiency of Yahoo's NEO Group format:Moderators of groups which are totally moderated, like this one, under NEO, have no ability to edit pending posts. For example, what if a poster accidently or otherwise inserts a vulgar word, or porno link, etc. into a posting. Moderators have no ability to edit out the vulgar word, or porno link. Moderators can now only approve or not approve a pending post._______

Recent changes to the Groups format, called "NEO, ordered by Queen Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!, is presenting many problems.Yahoo and Ms. Mayer, are receiving huge amounts of negative comments.People, especially owners and moderators of groups, want the Classic version of Groups returned, or at least offerred as an optional format.The more comments that Yahoo receives the better. Here's one place to place comments (Yahoo's official Feedback forum):So far, thousands of negative comments seem to be reaching deaf ears.______

Looks like it works on my end, but with a drop from 200+ message last month to 3 so far this month it appears something is wrong somewhere.
Any estimates for a fix? Would it help to have all 1047 of us send a complaint in to YAHOO! support?

(Thanks to Laurence, for the heads up, and 've combined all the info)
Marissa Mayer will sit down with journalist Charlie Rose on September 24 at 3:45 PM Eastern, for an intimate discussion about her first year with Yahoo!, and how
new technologies, platforms and the shifting digital landscape are impacting today's advertising arena.
OKAY! EVERYONE WRITE / TWEET & FB CHARLIE ROSE!
Tell him to ask Marissa Mayer if Yahoo is such a caring company, why are they ignoring thousands and thousands of Yahoo Group users who are trapped in NEO? Use your imagination. Tell him Yahoo is destroying Classic Groups, tell them your own story, if you can. And tell him to expect an e-mail from Nightowl.
You can also direct him to this feedback thread for himself, and to my group.
THIS IS OUR CHANCE! WRITE THEM NOW!
Tell them what has been done to Groups, and let us hope that SOMEONE finally hears us! Cause Yahoo certainly ain't listening!

@charlierose I need to tell you that Yahoo is destroying our Yahoo Groups! Please tell Mayer to stop NEO, it does not work!
@charlierose I'm a member of a group that is trying to stop the NEO interface! It isn't ADA compliant!
@charlierose I want to tell you how NEO is impacting my Yahoo group (edit here)
@charlierose Please tell the press that thousands of Group users are leaving Yahoo groups! Neo doesn't work!
@charlierose The world needs to know that NEO is disrupting lives and people are despondent and even suicidal!
@charlierose Here is the group that is trying to help:

You could also use these as starting point for writing a Facebook post.
