  1. you got to be kidding me, why on earth they want to do that. It’s like they want to be rude to loyal customers.
    Ever since msn have closed chatrooms and groups, now they’re doing the same thing with yahoo.
    man its quite annoying that they would kill off yahoo messenger just like that. people use yahoo IM all the time. its simplier, plus people transfer files whether it be their own writings to share or pictures.
