NPR did a piece on this this morning, and the corporate mouthpiece spewed  some rah-rah about how over 10000 ex-employees have re-applied.

/Thank you no

FuzzyPinkMatrix: She has not improved Flickr.


I loved it first but then they creeped more and more ads in, now I see that ugly as sin yahoo toolbar at the top. Funny how they burned the goodwill faster then they created it.

Magorn: MightyPez: 1) The Yahoo Weather iOS app is really nice.

2) Yahoo mail makes a great throw away spam account.

Those are the only things I can say about Yahoo that I use or like.

I've had a yahoo mail account for almost 20 years, so I'm sentimental about it, and I used to use Yahoo News to do my morning "get informed/ Read stuff to submit to Fark with a funny headline" drill.  Up until about two weeks ago when they rolled out the New Yahoo news format, which I hate so much I no longer bother going there much at all,  So I figure, based on my old GL rate, I've cost them ~10,000 page clicks personally since they screwed up thier news pages

I don't get the hate on yahoo mail either. Been my primary email for over 15 years, and every update seems to improve the experience. Gmail, on the other hand, I hate with a passion. That has become my throw away address.

That said, I can't conceive of a scenario where I would use Yahoo in any other fashion. Well, tumblr aside.

Hyjamon: Another variation on this is the "Queen Bee" effect.  Some women want to be the only women on the board, in the room, in the office or what ever level they are on.  It is similar to women wanting to be the only one in the bar/at the party, so they don't have to compete for all the mens' attention in the bar/at the party.  Women will sabotage other women on the rise so they can be the Queen Bee.  Ancedotally(spelling?)  , women don't seem good at the team concept.

Man, can you imagine how bad and racist it would sound if you replaced the word "women" with say, "black people"?

/sounds just as bad with the word "women"  - whether you believe it to be true or not
