    Warning about Yahoo

    Just got this message off one of my lists.

    Well worth looking at as it sounds as though our Mr Yahoo is up to something somewhat dodgy.

    Take a look at their updated privacy statement:

    <a href="http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html" target="_blank">http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html</a>

    About half-way down the page, in the section "Outside
    the Yahoo! Network", you'll see a little "click here"
    link that will let you opt-out of their new method of
    snooping. I recommend doing this. Once you have
    clicked that link, you are opted out. Notice the
    "Success" message at the top of the next page.

    BE CAREFUL because on that page there is a "Cancel
    Opt-out" button that, if clicked, will *undo** the
    opt-out.
    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    (You were right to note this "BE CAREFUL because on that page there is a "Cancel
    Opt-out" button that, if clicked, will *undo** the
    opt-out." as it is in the button that you'd often use to close out of such a window. Cunning indeed.)
