Changes (for the worse, IMHO) at Yahoo!


Okay well here is the next batch of crap from Yahoo. It seems that
the next step in the marketing campaign they are rolling out will be
the use of "pop-up" and "pop-under" windows on yahoo in all of its
forms. This is still more bullshit from our friends at Yahoo. I have
been using a freeware program called pop-up stopper, and it works
well on all of my favorite sites. It just will not allow pop-up
window to load, including links you click (unless you hold down the
shift key). The first couple of days it is annoying because you
forget it is on, but once you are used to it, it bliss.

There is a downloadable copy on my website. (My website is free, no
passwords, no spam, just my life on line, so don't freak, and its PG-
13 rated, so no naked photos), just click <a href="http://nav.to/borriskitty">http://nav.to/borriskitty</a>
and the download is on the first page.

WEB BEACONS

They strike once more. Yahoo is now tracking you while you surf.
Follow these instructions to "opt out". It's important that you opt-
out on each computer that you use, not just once for your account.


Yahoo - Where it was once fun to post....

This if for all of you with Yahoo IDs. If you are on a Yahoo Groups
listserve, then you have a Yahoo ID.

Yahoo is tracking its members' surfing habits
outside the Yahoo network through the use of what they call "Web
beacons."

<a href="http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html">http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html</a>

You can opt out of this "research" tool -- just
click on the link and follow the instructions.

Now, just incase you missed the last email notice, Yahoo! is ready
to start spamming you! They have reset all of your marketing options
to "YES" and will begin spamming you via e-mail, telephone, and
snail mail. To opt-out of this you must reset all of your
preferences. Click the link to do that.

Free Calling Card for Military Members for Mother's Day…


Wal-Mart and SAM'S CLUBS are working with the USO and AT&T to send
our overseas troops an AT&T phone card. The goal is to provide ALL
our overseas troops a phone card to call home for Mother's Day.
This will be at NO COST to the soldier or the participating customer.

Right now we have thousands of service men and women overseas -
some already engaged and others standing ready - to help make the
world
a safer place. We want to do what we can to support them, and we
know the one thing they miss is talking with their family and
friends.

We encourage anyone who has a U.S. family member or friend serving
overseas to come into their local store or club or fill in the
information below to provide us with the service member's name and
address.

Now I will stay vigilant, and keep everyone up-to-date in the every
changing Yahoo story. For those of you who might consider this spam,
it's just information, not any of the links listed are spam, pay
sites, porn sites, or the like. If I have offended anyone with this,
accept my apologies. But I do know many people never read the TOS,
just scroll through them and hit okay.
