This is because somebody exceeds the flood tolerance in the chat room (posting a lot of messages). Normally Yahoo would automatically ignore the user, but a bug exists that Yahoo thinks you're ignoring yourself (when you're really not). No workaround.

I can't see any words in the chat windows

It may be that you have chosen to ignore anyone who is not in your Contacts in which you case you need to change your settings:

Click on "Messenger" in the top left hand corner.

Click on "Preferences".

Click on "Ignore List".

Click on "Ignore only the people below".

Click on "Apply" followed by "OK".

Or it could be that you have a scrpting problem because some of your software needs updating. I am giving you a link to Yahoo Messenger Help page:

Where it says "Welcome to Yahoo Messenger 10 Help", select your product from the drop down box.

Then where it says "Search", try inputting "Script Problems".

Here is a link giving you information on troubleshooting scripting problems in Vista and Windows7:

Download Yahoo Messenger
  1. Proceed to the Yahoo Messenger Web site. You will click the 'Messenger' link on the Yahoo home page or you can head directly to the Messenger Web site (see Resources below).

  4. Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process. Tips & Warnings
  • Use Yahoo Messenger for voice-chat, conferencing, chat and a host of other communications options. It's even possible to send important documents to your contacts using Yahoo Messenger without having to send an email.
  • If you're having trouble getting Yahoo Messenger to work, get your questions answered by visiting the Yahoo Help Web site.
  • Be aware that there are some less than honorable people who use Yahoo Messenger. They are capable of crashing your services using boot programs or they will continually send you spam messages. Remember you can always choose to block, or ignore, other users so they can't continue to contact you.

Check your messenger preference setting > Go to ignore list and check if you chose the option "ignore whoever not in my contact list" change that to "ignore as list only" and save. Let me know the result, hope it will help.

How i want delete the name from my ignore list?

You must be logged in first, of course.
Open the main messenger window, and press the 'Messenger' tab button at the top of the window.
Click the 'Preferences' button, and then find the 'Ignore List' selector.
Highlight a name you wish to remove and click 'Remove'.
