I finally left Yahoo

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Edited by SEANMCAD (5464 posts) -

Actually its been awhile and I have been making the transition slowly. I am an older internet user so I grew up with Yahoo. Here is why I have moved on.

1. 'gaming news' disappeared and got consumed with 'technology'

2. the default quick links for new is 'local','entertainment','sports'. Its not possible for me to care less about sports or Justin Bieber's hair cuts.

3. I dont care about Justin Bieber and would prefer to not even know who he is

4. CEO has commanded all employees to work in the office rather than embracing innovation of work from home solutions.

5. making logins more complicated? that will bring me back? no it wont.

My main email is yahoo, I dont really get why people act like yahoo email is worst than carrier pigeon messaging.

I have a gmail and had a hotmail, their all the same. I only have a gmail cuz google forced it on to everything, i had to get one.

Hotmail: my personal email, had it since 2004.

Gmail: Decided to open a more formal, professional email account and decided to use Gmail. Plus Google bitches a lot with Youtube.

Yahoo: Used for Fantasy Sports and last last last resort if the first two aren't available or something.

I have no problem with email.

I have a problem knowing who Justin Bieber is, hidden gaming news, and a CEO who thinks its a good idea for everyone to be in the office in 2014

Yahoo was the place to go to in the old days of the internet.

It would make more sense if you left your mom and dad.. and got your own apartment, a job.

I'm guessing he's gonna be in sensory overload at the moment...

Yahoo has shitty casual news with a reading and writing level of a 6th grader.

I agree, most of the shit they post is not even considered "news".

Were you using it on internet explorer too? Jeez, the only thing I've used Yahoo for in like 10 years is YahooAnswers.

I used to be apart of that community but then more trolls started coming in and so were pointless changes that made everything less fun.

Yep, same here.

I actually find it to be best of the three you mentioned.
