    At the rate M$ are simply destroying hotmail as a good useful service, i wonder how far they will really go before hitting the boarder limits?

    I've always been a Yahoo fan from day once on the Internet, i grew up on Yahoo e-mail and messenger before any other, and still they provide the quality of service they have always promised and even more up to the current day

    Free 6mb e-mail box, all the features/options we have all come to expect, and Yahoo Messenger is far more advanced then MSN/Windows Messenger in nearly every aspect, it just lacks the simple look that has been dropped over the years as more and more hard work/improvements we're implemented into the product.

    I sure wish MSN/Windows Messenger would just die sometime's, M$ really deserve it for their treatment of us recently

    Yeah I have 6MB too... Why in the hell are they being so cheap? When I signed up, I was told I would get yahoo mail, free for life...
    Well, I wasnt told they would skimp it down to the barebones email... Hell, if it gets any worse I am going back to Postal Mail LOL
    j/k

    It's really pathetic... I mean I shop on yahoo, have purchased hotel packages, airplane tickets, etc... I dont understand how they can be out so much money as to stop offering their services... It doesnt make sense to me... But I guess in the end it was a business decision made by a board that wants to see profits.

    Angry yahoo

    X-Setup's official site is down for the count. Their Web host (Yahoo!) is apparently being non-responsive? From CptSiskoX: "Yahoo! has some ridiculous policies in place. A while ago they had a Terms of Service agreement which claimed everything hosted on a Yahoo! site (GeoCities division especially) was property of Yahoo! and all creative works were relinquished to their ownership, etc. Public outrage surged against them and they backed down eventually. As I recall, it took them a few different tries to get the wording acceptable to the public. Yahoo! took serious public relations damage from that incident and several others, such as automatically signing all members up for spam and junk e-mail (unsolicited commercial bulk as we all know) and the user had the 'responsibility' to get off the spam lists by changing the preferences (again) even if they had previously said they did not want to receive the spam. Yahoo! has continued a pattern of blunders and has a real bone-headed approach to appeasing their users. It's exactly these type of idiotic, oppressive and offensive acts that cause people to leave companies for competitors." Some are going as far as to Boycott Yahoo! now. http://www.parentpreview.com/boycott.htm

    Of course, i was talking from the user's point of view, what ever companies/businesses that get screwed over by Yahoo and any other Internet company i see as none of my concern, though it shouldn't really happen, but the world's so corrupt these days ain't it?

    And this 2mb cut back from 6mb-4mb is pretty resonable i think, due to the fact that it's still 2mb above the thier only current competition (hotmail) that have allowed Yahoo to do such a piss take in the first place

    A real shame to new user's though!
