      does the "opt out' have no effect ?

      Just about all commercial websites employ tracking sites to log what you browse. Google is the worst - and Facebook (even if you are not a member it tracks YOU). DoubleClick.com (whatever) seems to be the most prevalent site. Tracking data - i.e. logging your browsing patterns and what you browse - is a big cash cow. BUT for some reason Yahoo's implementation of tracking is slower than the rest and makes an already slow system (due to the Javacript-bloat) even slower approaching unusability. CJB.

      The slowness of Yahoo servers to respond to a user's email session is partly but dramatically affected by all of the damned tracking sites that are queued up before the email system actually does anything. The WORST is this one: 

      prod4.rest-core.msg.yahoo.com

      I have just waited for over 10 minutes for this one to clear. 

      Obviously the tracking sites are slowing down responses to a user's request to e.g. open an email. And there are so many of them. So the time that they waste all adds up and dramatically affects the usability of the email system.

      And if just one tracking site goes slow or worse stops - maybe due to overloading - then the whole of Yahoo's email system simply stops too.


      If Yahoo wants to impose and employ tracking sites - which I guess earns it cash - then it might have the nuance to ensure that the sites don't hold up a user's session. I hate the term 'user experience' but these damned sites not only affect Yahoo's reputation per se but also cause immense frustration for the user as his / her 'user experience' deteriorates to the point of unusability.

      CJB.
