DO NOT STOP THE GAMES!!! Why would you do that? Is it to sell more putrid ad space for vendors nobody is interested in?
Don't stop the games. That is the only thing that draws me to the internet. Why would you do that? Is it to sell more ads to vendors nobody pays attention to anyway? You are driving your own customers away and you do not care. If you did, you would ask people if they want the games to continue.
The reality is that "free" services aren't free. Just because a particular product is popular, in no way makes it profitable. As far as the cuts, Marissa Mayer is taking the lead from what the more significant shareholders in Yahoo desire- cuts in non-productive products, and a focus on core services- search, mail, and Tumblr. From a business perspective, it makes no sense to keep items that aren't meeting growth expectations, such as Games, Health, Parenting, Shine, et al.
I'm sorry that you feel snubbed, but Games is just one product among many whose time has come. There are other products that will fall before the end of the year, perhaps as soon as the 1st quarter report is published. Everyone has a "favorite" free item that has been cut.
