    Yahoo!'s Response regarding cheating commissioner

    This is the response I got from Yahoo! regarding the commissioner of a league I am in that is taking players off of other peoples team and putting them on his own team, then bragging about how great his team is (and locking anyone who responds out of the message board).
    Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Sports.

    "I appreciate your inquiry with regards to your Private League.

    We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. While we regret any
    negative experiences team owners may have in Custom Leagues, Yahoo!
    doesn't interfere with Custom Leagues matters.

    Commissioners have full jurisdiction over the leagues they create.

    During the registration process for Custom Leagues, we took steps to
    direct your attention to the tools and authorities available to private
    league commissioners. We recommend that you try contacting your
    commissioner via email or your league's message board to resolve any

    Unfortunately, we can't remove teams from private leagues or act as
    intermediary between coach and commissioner after the draft has been
    completed. You aren't obligated to visit the team or league pages if you
    no longer want to participate in your private league.

    In the future, we hope to have a commissioner rating system available
    similar to a rating system you might find on popular auction sites. This
    would allow managers to join leagues based on commissioner ratings and
    would also give managers an opportunity to give a negative rating to
    commissioners who don't run their leagues in good faith and a positive
    rating for those who do.

    I value your interest in Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. Whenever you have
    further comments or questions, please feel free to email me again."
