    Yahoo Chat Room Petition

    Category: Entertainment & Media

    Room: Romance XX’s and XX’s (Particularly Romance XX’s, Room X)

    Target: CEO, Carol Bartz. Yahoo Inc.

    701 First Ave., Sunnyvale CA. 94089

    Subject: Booting, Term of Service & Code of Conduct, “with initial abuse report” (KMMxxxxxxxxxxxx)

    Authors: Peter, Paul and Mary, on behalf of regular members of this room.

    Started: 26th January 2011

    We the undersigned are regular and frequent users of Yahoo Chat Services in the Category "Romance" and in the rooms listed as 50's and 60's, and particularly in the Romance, 50’s Room 9, a very popular room. Recently and over a period of time, we have been harassed, Intimidated, threatened, and bullied by a group of people who like to flaunt the Terms of Service and Code of Conduct as stated by Yahoo.

    Yahoo TOS states Clause 6 You agree to not use the Yahoo! Services to:

    - article a)

    upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libellous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable

    - article i)

    disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, cause a screen to "scroll" faster than other users of the Yahoo! Services are able to type, or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users' ability to engage in real time exchanges

    Many of us regularly visit these chat rooms to play music, to relax, unwind, start or finish the day in peace and harmony. We are mature and responsible users of the Service and abide by all of the TOS.

    Recently we have struggled to maintain harmony due to people booting. Boot programs are widely distributed and can easily be accessed. These programs have no other purpose than that of maliciously disruption.

    Complaints via Yahoo's normal channels have brought about no real protection from the violators.

    The Terms of Service and Code of Conduct need to be adhered to by both the User and the Provider. A lack of action by Yahoo in response to many reports of abuse has allowed the mindless few, to remain unrealized and free to continue their harassment and to negatively affect others.

    These people work as a group. They appear organized and methodical.

    Therefore: We the undersigned, ask that Yahoo adhere to its very own TOS and CoC and take all or any action necessary to bring these violators to a halt in their intimidating tactics. The users support Yahoo and its sponsors and should be afforded that same.

  • So Google to take on Microsoft?

    Google is to take on Microsoft and introduce and Operating System , which will be priced into the cost of the PC or Laptop.I didn't like there attempt at a browser, just looked so "plain jane"? As Google and Yahoo are one and add driven, does this means more adds , more vulnerable to infections? Or is this just going to be good old competition,and more choice for the consumer? Will it change they way a computer functions, or the way we use it? Interesting time ahead with Windows 7 about to be released?

  • Don't know if this is for real? but better to be safe than sorry?

    THIS IS AN EXTRACT IF AN EMAIL WARNING:

    Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!

    I checked Snopes (URL above:), and it is for real!!

    Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP.

    PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!

    You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message

    with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,' regardless of who sent

    it to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the

    whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone

    who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is the reason

    why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts It is better to receive

    this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.

    If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a

    friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately.

    This is the worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by

    Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by

    McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This

    virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital

    information is kept.

    COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT

    TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

    Anyone confirm this as a Real concern??

  • Age old question:which is the best Antivrus program?

    would you believe this graph? http://www.eset.com/products/compare-NOD32-vs-comp... Is this just a sales pitch or can the results be manipulated by what type of viruses,trojan or worms it can detect.

    As we all surf different site etc, I maintain "when your on a good thing stick to it" Norton's only let me down once in 7 years of use.I am not a fan of freebies an I believe you pay for what you get. So if you were to believe the graph Nod32 is tops and AVG is the worse? People always have an opinion on antivirus.

    I am doing an IT course and this came up in the line of research to which is the best and what you would sell a customer as an IT technician? Look forward to hearing some feedback.

    P.S. I have already done this cahapter so your not doing homework, just healthy debate?
