Cancel opp. Pillz and life mod can stop Yomi Ld’s ability even though it’s protected. Why is this possible?
This does not make sense to me, I would understand if the there was also a stop opp bonus.

The ability by itself isnt stopped, just the effect of the ability is negated by the ability Cancel opp. Pillz and life. The same goes for lets say #Caleus Cr who has -5 power min. 2, if you have a card, that cancels opp. power mod, he wont reduce the opponents power. His ability was triggered but negated. Take it as stop opp ability stops the ability from even triggering, but cancel lets the ability trigger but negates it.
Protection only stops any form of Cancelling Opp. Ability.
Taken from Oda Helpah`s Bio:
"Any of your opponent's abilities or bonuses that alter Pillz and/or Life will be cancelled. This applies to reductions AND increases in Pillz / Life.
This effect is not a Stop Ability or a Stop Bonus..."
Taken from Skeelz Bio:
"The Ability of Skeelz can not be blocked while the Protection: Ability Bonus is activated."
All Skeelz does is prevent any means of Stop Opp. Ability. from working against Yomi Ld.
Cancel Opp. Life and Pillz Mod ≠ Stop Opp. Ability.
Protect: Ability only prevents Stop Opp. Ability.
Protect: Bonus only prevents Stop Opp. Bonus.
Cancel Opp. Life and Pillz Mod is the equivalent of having NO ABILITY if the card played against it has no means to modify Pillz and/or Life Points, even if Morphun was in the background.
Basically, by simply playing Cancel Opp. Pillz and Life Mod, you prevent Morphun, #Volkan, Barden and the like from having their abilities work for a turn.

As far as I know Skeelz' bonus, Protection of Ability, only protects against Stop Opp Ability, not against Cancel Opp Power/Attack/Damage/Pillz/Life.
Same as the ability Protection of Bonus only protects against Stop Opp Bonus, not against another Cancel ability.
