Are You Kidding Me????
Like millions of other web users, I have a Yahoo! Mail account. It's certainly not my primary e-mail address, but it's a safe, reliable haven that I've used for years to store back-up copies of my electronic Rolodex and other tidbits of information that I'd like to keep record of. The service has never failed me and the price (free) couldn't be better. Today, I tried to log-in to my account and received this . ARE YOU FLIPPIN' KIDDING ME, YAHOO????? So what if I haven't logged in for four months (I'm not even sure that's the case)?! I've filled out your detailed registration profile. You know a lot of information about me. You have my phone number. You have my IM handle. You have an ALTERNATE e-mail address. My wife even worked for you for more than 7 years! Why no warning of any kind that you were going to shut me down??? This line, in particular, throws even more salt in the wound...
What does this mean?

I'd like the record to note that this *royally* sucks. Those 200 or so personal e-mails I was keeping with you are going to be missed. Great user experience, guys.
