    they had a pilot program of a place like stickam called ylive. It was a smaller community but shit was all right. We used to troll the hell out of it and one day they just shut it down. I read the press release and it said they were concentrating on the search engine area. Of course by then Google had become a monster and there was simply no way they were gonna catch up. Instead they should have tried other venues like ylive. Piss poor management in my opinion. Plain and simple

    I had a pretty good yahoo page where I could see all the news and sports from different sources. They've completely decimated it to where there are only a few sources. i like to be able to compare coverage. I don't really use it any more.

    True, but I work at multiple stations at my job (hotel work) so it's easier just to use yahoo. :dontknow:
