labman: Someone clearly didn't think this through.
rwa2: ha haI more or less migrated all of my (and my wife's) stuff off yahoo a couple years ago when those spam emails started going out to our yahoo address lists.It was actually pretty painless. Have fun!gmail made it much easier to forward / mirror emails to my personal server.also took the opportunity to set up multiple gmail accounts, which are fairly easy to manage on android, etc... have separate fairly anonymous ones for websites & products (talking to bots) , mailing lists, and finally one blissfully quiet one for friends and family that's the only one I get inbox notifications for.kinda sad because yahoo worked well back in its heyday. But good to clean house every once in a while.
Satanic_Hamster: Said this before.It's even better. Flicker? That's the best example you could come up with, Mr. Article Writer?How about Wellsfargo.com? Ebay? Paypal? Amazon? You know, websites with money and credit cards attached to them?
cameroncrazy1984: labman: Someone clearly didn't think this through.Well, they work at Yahoo. So, yeah.
relaxitsjustme: If you used a Yahoo account to set up a PayPal or online bank account and haven't logged in in over a year I have no sympathy for you.

You know, websites with money and credit cards attached to them?Flickr is more likely to be associated with a yahoo account and readily searchable. Once you have the address, then you go looking for other websites that will accept it on a "forgot my login" prompt. It really is that easy, and that bad of an idea.
