So my old e-mail was with Yahoo. As part of the on-going efforts to separate my life from the man formerly known as Mr. Zone (well, not quite -- SOON), it was cancelled. Initially, I was told that I would get a chance to separate my Yahoo Groups and so forth from that e-mail address. Like with Bill Gates/Microsoft, you are PWNED!!!! when you join Yahoo: if you have several services through them, it is all linked and when you sign into one thing, you are signed into everything. It can be convenient in some ways but is turning into My Worst Nightmare now. I can still send mail to various Yahoo Groups I belong to but I can no longer sign into "My Groups" even though I did all that I was supposed to do to make that possible, in theory, I think.
I don't really expect anyone to have practical solutions to my inconvenient dilemma here (which I have not really detailed) but this is your chance to bash Yahoo.
