I know how old this makes me sound, but why does everything have to keep changing once I get used to it. I’m of the firm belief, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’ I hate the changes Yahoo has made. I’ve had a yahoo account since I’ve had email. When people started to go to Google I stayed where I was with something familiar. My kids made fun of me, insinuating everyone who was anyone used gmail.
I have gmail at work – hate it. Don’t like the way it shows my email it seems confusing and redundant. So what does Yahoo do? It says screw all of you who have remained loyal to us, we are now changing to everything you hate about gmail, like being confusing, redundant and it keeps bundling things I don't want bundled. It's not one hot mess.
Here are a few Yahoo questions and answers:
Are we going to ask you if you want this change? Hell, no.
Are we going to ask if we can change your account whether you want it or not? Hell, no.
Are we going to give you the option to go back to the format you liked? Hell, no.
Are we going to make it easy to give us feed back on this change? Awww… hell, no.
And just to add insult to injury when you delete your span, or your trash or complete a draft they give you one of these peppy little messages:
You are my Anti-Spam hero.
There are no emails in your Spam folder.
Nice job, it sure looks tidy in here!
There are no emails in your Trash folder.
Nice work, you finish what you start.
There are no emails in your Drafts folder.
I suppose if they hadn’t screwed with my email I might have seen it as mildly amusing, but how I read it as so much condescending bullshit!
I realize nothing I say will change one thing, but I wanted to get it out before I exploded. And one other thing, I hear Yahoo has come up with a new motto:
“We’re Yahoo, we don’t care, we don’t have to.”
