Am I the Only One Who Wishes Yahoo Would Go Under?

mybloglog-logo.png…as in out of business? I loathe Google, but if I had to pick the lesser of two evils, I’d pick Google over Yahoo every time. I guess I need to fire my assistant as I did not get a memo that Yahoo would stick its hands up’s backend (pardon the pun). Seriously. If I’m the only one who says hands off of my Internet tools (you Yahoo morons), then so be it. But Yahoo, please- don’t buy anything else unless yahoo-logo-735610.jpgyou’re keeping your widgets out of their Facebooks.

I don’t want a Yahoo account. I especially love how once you were on Yahoo’s account mashup of the two, the ‘copy’ changed to an assumptive posture as if I had somehow asked for this. I even had to agree to their stupid terms! Well, let me give you a few terms yahoo, **** ***! myblogblog blog will delete this trackback but at least you heard what I had to say. thanks for nothing. I cannot think of a single thing Yahoo has ever gotten right, even on the 5th try.

Benn Rosales is the Founder and CEO of The American Genius (AG), national news network. Before AG, he founded one of the first digital media strategy firms in the nation has received the Statesman Texas Social Media Award and is an Inman Innovator Award winner. He has consulted for numerous startups (both early- and late-stage), and is well known for organizing the digital community through popular offline events. He does not venture into the spotlight often, rather he believes his biggest accomplishments are the talent he recruits and develops, so he gives all credit to those he's empowered.

    You are not alone oh genius. It is why you are the genius.

    Yahoo is lost in the gravity of their fading star. They once did a couple of things right and are stuck thinking that all things must be absorbed into the collective.

    When was the last time you saw an original thought out of Yahoo!? As an organization, they are now firmly in the reactive mode.

    I fear the Yahooligans are now a bunch of fading celebrities heavy into the sauce endlessly reminiscing about yesteryear

    RG (or is it BR, I get so confused) I have to ask you what the heck you are talking about?

    I use MyBlogLog. I have ATT/Yahoo! But I don’t keep up on all this crap. Please explain to this simpleton what you are talking about.

    Of course, this can all wait util you are ready to get back to work.

    It’s Benn or BR- yahoo swallowed bloglog and merged bloglog with yahoo services, mail, chat, etc… I do not use yahoo for anything, but am now required to have a yahoo id. If you haven’t noticed there have been many disruptions in service over the past several months as they mashed the two services, and to what end? It was needless. There are many other areas of frustration, but that is where it all began.
