      Oddpost was cool over a year ago..and well... was cooler without Yahoo.

      The only thing Yahoo has managed to add is advertising bloat.

      Dear Yahoo, you'll have to do better than this going forward. Acquiring a company and touting their capabilities is so Microsoft.

      "Not since the code breakers in Britain's Bletchley Park deciphered Germany's Enigma code during World War II has so much brainpower been focused on kicking an enemy's ass."

      Use double quotes to enclose a phrase, or else your tags may attract people looking for photos of donkeys or romantic moments.

      ...I'm using yahoo mail, and I haven't even noticed any changes.

      Does that make me blind and stupid?

      This is kind of pre-emptive when most people are still using the old, ad-ridden Yahoo Mail.

      Somehow this is remindful of the "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banner that decorated the aircraft carrier a NUMBER OF YEARS AGO as the frat-boy (and costumed) puppet of the war-profiteer vice-president announced the end of hostilities in Iraq... That wasn't true then, and Yahoo will NEVER win the war against Google now. Methinks Yahoo's "celebration" is equally premature.
