Uh, no? I wrote them a scathing message that included a sentence something like "you're going to read my email so you can market to me? That's like telling me you're going to punch me in the face so you can cut my arm off."
Unfortunately it seems most email providers do this. I'm going to end up paying for email if I want to switch. Not to mention having to switch login info for all the message boards and such that I used my two Yahoo email addresses to sign up for. Pain in the arse.
Actually, I've had no such issue with Yahoo, or any other email service, actually. Could be that my ad blocker is behind that, though. That said, AdBlock Plus is free and really great. Only works with Firefox and Chrome, though, to my knowledge. Seems like Internet Explorer support isn't a thing for anyone out there that enjoys slow and exploitable web browsers.
In regards to Yahoo, I've been having some interesting issues as of late, as well. My phone can no longer connect to my account and I keep getting told that I need to verify my password or that my username isn't taken. I can still log in, but only if I change my password. Really confusing stuff. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.
