Spleen Vented!

Well, I've moved most of my Yahoo mail and I've calmed down enough to put up a Parable on my website about this bad experience!

On September 6, 2011 Yahoo C.E.O. Ms Carol Bartz Was Fired; Which Brought A Smile to My Face!!

I have never had this problem, I host all my own email, blogs and files.
This way I have complete control what information goes where.

@ online identity.

Honestly it's what everybody wants except for the people that like privacy. The average consumer want one place to manage everything and their credit cards etc. Hell if stores settled on a standard 'discount' card, they could have been sharing information by now as well. Is there a way to avoid it all? Sure, don't buy things online and only from Mom&Pop stores. Is that convenient? Not all the time.

If not Google+ then somebody else will do it. It's inevitable.

I don't particularly like either Google or Yahoo, but Yahoo appears to be the lesser evil.
