Pud: But look on the bright side. You get lots and lots of Spam ...Tasty, delicious Spam
ZAZ: You could, for example, find a dormant Flickr account, which previously required a Yahoo email address.That was my idea in the original thread. Some teen's long-forgotten stash of self-portraits is out there waiting for a caring man to cherish them.
labman: Someone clearly didn't think this through.
No Such Agency: SDRR:Lsherm: Oh Jesus, I use my yahoo account to register for pr0n sites. Someone is going to be very unhappy if I let it lapse.You register to get pron? And, how do you know they wouldn't be delighted?I'm guessing if you register for pr0n, you get a LOT of spam and links to malware. And I doubt Yahoo mail is any good at filtering it.
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: I'm going to try and claim lshermoohaycom just to gamble on the potential.
Cletus C.: If someone gets my yahoo address they could then access my fark account. What if they did that, then posted something relevant, coherent and thought-provoking?My reputation would be ruined.
Lsherm: sn82: sentex: sn82: I know several people that have had their accounts hacked this week. Once they release these emails it's going to get worse..Most of the spam I get is from friends with yahoo accounts that get hacked bi-annually.I get my gmail account hacked more than my yahoo account. I've had to reset my password several times.Then turn on two-factor authentication and choose a better password. Are you from 2006?
