Over 4000 teens and young adults have begged and pleaded with the New York Times to cover a major news story since last September.WHY haven;t they reported on the enclosed story.Can you give us advice on how to get their attention?

1.The format is in violation of public website access defined in the DOJ/ADA.Yahoo was warned from day one that the format is illegal but has not heeded the concerns of the visually impaired.

1A.This format is at variance with the Child Online Protection and Privacy act as amended.It is at variance with the January 2014 California statute forbidding the 'tracking' of minor children.When posting to Yahoo groups directly,the IP of the user is disclosed.

2.This format is in violation of international conventions adopted by the majority of sovereign nations through the auspices of the United Nations.Rights to public access to to internet websites for the elderly and disabled.The placement of ads causes the reading equipment of the blind to stop functioning.

3.This format is discriminatory against the elderly.The elderly have warned Yahoo since day one that the format causes their older computers and slow modems to freeze.The high usage of RAM depletes the functionality of their computers over a period of time.

4.This format can not be used by those that have peripheral vision and nerve damage.Once again,users have voiced and written their concerns to Yahoo.These concerns have been dismissed.Yahoo claims that measures have been taken to address these concerns.Their proclamations are not based in reality.Their proclamations are for the sole attention of media scrutiny.

5.Yahoo needs to be held accountable for forcing this unwanted,un-needed,and unpopular format on millions of users that have complained about this format from day one.

You won't get a word from the Times.They are advertisers in the sinking ship of Yahoo.My family cancelled their subscription to the Times.The Times and Yahoo deserve one another.
