Goodbye, Yahoo

Today, with the announcement that Yahoo has been bought by Verizon, I have taken the liberty of taking down my yahoo groups.  There are two reasons really.

  1. I am not a fan of Verizon.  They have given me such intentionally poor customer service in the past that I just assume never use one of their products again, even if it is free.
  2. The group has been quiet for a while.  I originally set it up to host my files.  WordPress has been allowing multiple file types for several years now, thus eliminating the need to host a file on another service.
  3. I have been getting hit by spam.  I suspect it originated from Yahoo and now I am on some spammer’s list.  All of this occurred because Yahoo simply could not provide adequate maintenance of their products.

So there you have it.  If you want to stay in touch, come on by my blog and say “hi!”  I’ll still be posting.  Hopefully, I’ll have more to say as the summer draws to a close.

    HI John,

    I am dumping Yahoo, too. For the last two months, I’ve been engaged in the laborious process of transferring and updating/reformatting all the material I had posted in photos and files to my computer so that I could roll it out in a blog (coming soon). The last straw for me was the big format change. This last shift to Verizon just confirms that decision for me.

    Excelsior!
