    Today I rcv'd the following IM from someone I don't know and is not on my Yahoo IM or regular e-mail list. :confused: Is this for real? Are they really trying to get rid of Yahoo IM? I'd just as soon not SPAM my friends with this if it's not true.

    I know AOL and MSN also offer free IM, but I like Yahoo it's easy and extremely user friendly.

    I love foolish people who believe in this shit. If they were closing you would get an official message from Yahoo. They make far too much money to shut down. You got forward pranked.

    Not to mention something like that would make the news.

    More urban legends. A good place to check a lot of this stuff we get in email is snopes.com.

    Don't give that piece of shit a single minute of your time to even read it.

    They make money, they keep improving it and the only way you could lose your Yahoo is if you don't give me your id

    (had to give it a try :p)

    Makes sense. I can see the logic behind that.

    Okay, I was wrong, stupid whatever. Having never received an IM from a person I didn't know before I guess I paniced. Mea culpa, mea culpa can we please get over it and move on. I have seriously had enough harassment here for one day. :frown1: :confused: :mad:

    LPSG is going to be closed on November 17. If you respond to this thread in the next 8 days, you will be one of the ones that are allowed to stay.
