GetHuman-kenwayn's review of Yahoo customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Yahoo customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-kenwayn: Canadian spelling on Canadian site
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/28/17?
GetHuman-kenwayn: Yahoo Canada continually spells words in the British manner rather than accepting the Canadian form of spelling. Words such as hospitalize or recognize etc. are spelled in Canada using a "z" and not an "s". You should be accepting and using the Canadian spelling of words if you expect Canadians to use Yahoo Canada.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Yahoo. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Yahoo problem?
GetHuman-kenwayn: I'd give them a one out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
GetHuman-kenwayn: I'd give them a three out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Yahoo's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
GetHuman-kenwayn: For that I would say four out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Yahoo customers?
GetHuman-kenwayn: Try to deal with them early in the day or later. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Yahoo to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from GetHuman-kenwayn taken from his Yahoo customer service problem that occurred on November 28th, 2017.
