ChewbaccaJones: Oh Noes!!!  Don't hack that abandoned email account I haven't used in over a decade!
You might get access to all of the dick growing pill spam messages that have accumulated over the past 4000 days.

"Yahoo is the second-largest email service worldwide, after Google's Gmail "

Ok.  When was the last time you emailed someone who wasn't your grandmother who had a @Yahoo address?

I can't think of one off the top of my head.

/I hope they don't do something dastardly like hack AOL next.

Or netscapenavigator.

Coming on a Bicycle: Marissa Mayer may come and complain to me in person. Naked and bound, that is.

Has any woman ever not complained when viewing you naked?

I still use my Yahoo address for random, unimportant stuff. Actually my Fark account is tied to it, so there you go.

I hope no one is still using their old yahoo account as the recovery address for their current and much hipper domain name one.

Smackledorfer: Pokey.Clyde: Yahoo email addresses and passwords stolen. Company braces for complaints from all seven users

I guess the FAIL tag is for subby.

FTFA:  Yahoo is the second-largest email service worldwide, after Google's Gmail

In other words, subby.....you're a moron.

I actually prefer it to gmail.

It is much better for setting up folders. Name@gmail is much more professional seeming than my goofy yahoo account though.

My bad. I was thinking of my hotmail. I left my yahoo behind long ago.

If the hackers can actually get into my yahoo account they're welcome to use it.  I certainly can't as it keeps giving me errors for the past week or so.

Everything yahoo does is second rate, buggy and years behind the competition. Have two yahoo accounts dating to the late nineties when my parents ditched aol for a DSL. Only use they still have are spam email addresses. Their email client is god awful compared to gmail.

But my paranoia made me change those passwords. Cause lord knows I'm not reading all the thousands of unread messages and not taking a chance someone finds something in there they can use against me.
