Yahoo deserves to fail big time ...
... if only because of its insidious policy to foist is crapware unwanted on users that never asked for it in the first place.
Far too many products are coming with a so-called "optional" Yahoo toolbar, which is turned on by default. That's not an option, its an imposition.
Have a look at your own browser now. Does it have a yahoo toolbar, and did you actively choose to put it there? For far too many people, the answers will be "yes" and "no" respectively.
I vote we all actively remove Yahoo from our browsers. It's not easy I know, perhaps somebody can come up with an automated tool that does it and, preferably, blocks future surreptitious installations.
Better still, I vote that the twits that chose to offer it as an "option" in their products have an immediate rethink, use some elementary common sense and change the install option so that it is OFF BY DEFAULT.
If you don't, then it's not just Yahoo that we'll start boycotting. It's YOU too!
