Several days ago, I started the discussion Were You Required to Have Yahoo! Email? on Associatedcontent.com now owned by Yahoo! Days later and after some responses, I chimed in expanding on why I made inquiry. My brief explanation was quoted in the response of a fellow contributor. When I returned about two days later to the discussion, my explanation plus quote by fellow contributor had been deleted. I had simply given my concise story about why Yahoo! upon taking over Associatedcontent demanded that all Yahoo! contributors have a Yahoo! email account: Surveillance was my guess. I believe Yahoo! like Microsoft and Google is in bed with governments and that Yahoo! is commissioned to track all its literary users. I wrote to the contact on Associatedcontent.com seeking to know why my comment had been deleted. Several days went by and I received no reply. Today I received an email from Yahoo! alleging I was in violation of its Terms and Conditions and that it reserves the right to terminate my account for expressing my opinion. I read and have again read the Terms and Condition of use and TOS on Associatedcontent.com and saw nothing that would classify my properly expressed opinion as being in violation. Interestingly however, a contributor on Yahoo! Associatedcontent alleges my statement of fact is plain libel. To the contributor I again say: One is not guilty of libel and/or slander for telling the truth. The fact that an expressed statement, whether spoken or published, got you between the eyes, exposes you for what you are and causes others to see your nasty side does not qualify truthful statement as libel and/or slander. Darn paranoid entities and surveillance! Well, we humans just cannot be intimidated.
