Skip to comments.Dear Yahoo Mail: Goodbye.
Posted on 10/23/2012 5:53:59 AM PDT by Lazamataz
I've had it with Yahoo Mail. Oh, it's fine technically, it's the politics. Apparantly the CEO of Yahoo is an Obama Bundler, which would be fine (not really), but he lets his politics control the news stories printed. Yahoo News has become the MSNBC of the internet.
So, GOODBYE, Yahoo. It's obvious we must part company. Your mail service is free but you make money on my participation (ad revenue), and this I cannot abide.
Anyone have any ideas for good, stable free email services that AREN'T liberal?
I have the same problem with AOL and the Huffington Post. They actually have Obama ads on their main page. They don’t even try to hide their bias anymore.
Let me know what you find out. I have a verizon e-mail which uses Yahoo as the engine.
Every time I bring up the login page, it’s obama this, snookie that, justin bieber the other thing. Quite annoying.
Is everyone really that celebrity obsessed? I find it to be the most incredibly boring topic.
Huffington Post? Biased? Knock me over with a feather.
I’m actually considering this:
As a valued supporter of Free Republic, we have reserved firstname.lastname@example.org for your use. E-mail sent to this address will be forwarded to your Contact E-mail address. Current Value: Forwarding Enabled
Skewing the news to a liberal slant is fine with me as long as they acknowledge the bias, and if you allow real viewpoints to be voiced around that slant.
The majority of views are certainly NOT liberal!
I wish we had true email address portability.
I’d leave them all in a heartbeat.
Verizon, which you have to pay for, pops up Obammie the Commie ads WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EMAIL. When the service is working, of course, which is only about 70% of the time.
That’s right, you PAY THEM to ADVERTISE THEIR CANDIDATE.
I hate Verizon.
was just going to recommend reagan.com!
Yes Yahoo storied are almost all liberal stories but then again the news services like AP are all liberal; and so is the mainstream media where Yahoo gets the stories.
Yahoo’s software also sends stories to the front page when they get a lot of hits.And thousands of liberals click these stories to get them to the front page. Maybe we should do the same with stories (if there are any) that expose Obama etc.
It lacks any lib flavoring. It's free and you can choose from a huge list of possible domain names...
I have an email address at RonaldReagan also and was going to suggest it.
Feed the masses a steady diet of garbage, served up 24/7 and delivered direct.
While the news and information that is important is twisted, manipulated and buried.
I spent the money on an icloud account. No spam, no Obama, and they don’t sell it my info. With all the crap that comes with yahoo, it ain’t free anymore..
True, for basic. I have been paying a fee for years for extra storage space on Yahoo mail. I need it because I get so much spam that I don't have time to delete it. I have over 200,000 unread emails now.
I’ve been using gmail.com for years without any issues.
One can stay with the ".mail" suffix of course, nice & simple. There are many others to choose from, also.
Try www.myway.com. Free email, News content without the Yahoo spin, with much more control over the content. I’ve got sections set up for news, business, and sports. Granted, it’s AP headlines, but even they tend to be less inflammatory than Yahoo.
Yahoo CEO Marissa Meyer. (And don't tell us you wouldn't hit it)
Sorry, I need my 26 bogus Yahoo accounts in order to keep my 26 bogus Twitter accounts. That’s just the way of the online world.
The dude no longer abides.
Wait... you actually go to the Yahoo! page to use mail? You’re doing it wrong — just use an email client on your computer/mobile device to hook up to your Yahoo! account, and you never have to go to their web page again. (Ditto for GMail.)
Mail.com was taken over by AOL a few years ago, and now uses AOL’s engine for mail services.
This is the Yahoo CEO:
Yahoo is pretty bad. Their bias and spin is predictable.
When FR was slow last night (has been slow after all debates - is that due to attacks of some kind?) I looked at Yahoo. I knew they would spin it for Obama - and they sure did.
That's a GUY.
You've heard of shemales, right?
Thanks. You saved me some work.
This is your golden moment to create a new web browser for conservatives.
I like GMail. (Google email). It’s fast, and the ads are almost nonexistent. I know people here have issues with Google, but the email works fine for me. It integrates with other google aps, like calendar, contacts, googlemaps, updates itself automatically on my droid. Ann likes it too.
And a slut, to boot.
I hate shemales like Marissa Meyer.
My ‘71 Ford F100 had a nicer tranny.
Only used during fantasy football. Soon as the season is done, I don’t use again til the next season
I’d like to have a binder on her even if she is a lib. So is my wife and she isn’t even in the same league.
Hushmail rocks! Keeps it simple, and offers encryption.
I was both annoyed and amused by their streaming headlines at me this morning that Obama cleaned Mitt’s clock in that debate.
A Conservative search engine would CLEAN UP in the marketplace.
Ladyboys belong in Thailand. BEGONE WITH YOU, MARISSA MEYER!
Thread now has met all FR standards for weirdness.
Yes Yahoo is way too partisan to be considered fair or balanced. Yahoo management needs some schooling in fairness, not just freedom of speech. Maybe they will do a series on the US Constitution.
Yeah that is an attractive liberal Pretty much a rarity.
I use Yahoo email and I never go to or see their home page to get to my email account. When you are on your inbox page just bookmark it and use that link to get to your email inbox.
I got Yahoo mail about 10 years ago and used it as a throw-away account for the places that required an email address, but which I didn’t need to track. As far as I know it’s still open but I haven’t been there in a few years. Gmail for now but considering Rush’s recommendation of the Reagan email...
I hate Yahoo, but would consider having lunch with Marissa.
She’s a he.
Dude. How can you say that about your wife???
Okay then. If you’ve looked under there I’ll trust ya.
Laz, there is no new thing under the sun!
This has been going on for 15 years.
