Very Disgusting, Annoying, Underhanded Tactics by Yahoo!
SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA -- I have noticed more and more disgusting, annoying, and underhanded tactics being used by Yahoo recently:
Offhand, I can cite the following:
1. Yahoo emails keep popping up with Yahoo Messenger notices about some unknown people wanting to contact me. It takes not just one click, but two clicks, in order to turn off the popup. Even then, that's only temporary. It keeps popping up again and again. I tried uninstalling Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo toolbar, and everything associated with Yahoo extras, as well as any other Messenger programs in my computer, but to no avail. Then I searched and learned that I need to go to my email and click on a smiley next to my username, then click on an item to turn off that messenger feature. How come Yahoo Messenger messages from strangers keep popping up even after I had uninstalled that Messenger program?
2. Recently, I can no longer 1-click to go to MyYahoo. Yahoo now pops up a full screen ad and I have to click on "Go to my page". Very annoying and shows Yahoo people are unconcerned about customer inconveniences and intent on forcing ads on its customers.
3. In general, Yahoo has been forcing ads and pop-ups on its customers/users with very annoying tactics, and designed so that it is difficult to disable their annoyances. What kind of ethics do the Yahoo executives abide by? Are they all susscribed to the principle of "Customers and users be damned"?
