Thanks for your offer. Could you reach out to you associates to find out
more about yahoo's account policies? Right now there is not a joint letter
to sign, but I am asking those who said they would send a letter to send it
to me to post so that I can post them for others to use as a template. i
will keep you updated.

I am as outraged as all of you. I just joined this
group very recently, but have enjoyed all the posts. I
actually used to work for Yahoo way back when, so
maybe I can try to see what the deal is if there is
still anyone I know in the content/community
department. In the meantime, let me know if there is a
joint letter to sign. Power to the netizens ;-)
