Stop with the ads!
Ever ask yourself how much is enough?
Yahoo has been my homepage since I began on the internet
in 1998. It's like an old friend. I've always enjoyed the headlines and using the search
engine. I even met my husband on-line
in Yahoo Games Gin Rummy chat. (Another truly awesome passtime that has went by
the wayside.) This is why I am saddened enough to take the time to write to whomever
may take the time to listen. I doubt anyone will. I never really have believed that the opinion
of just one person changes much, but at least it will make me feel better and
help me to cope with the loss of my old friend.
I say this to you today because I just cannot take it anymore.
The amount of ads on Yahoo has taken the joy and ease
out of having it as my go to search engine and homepage.
I cannot enjoy anything I click on as it takes forever to
get through due to the time it takes for the ads to load.
It is obvoious the ads take precedence over the user's ability
to navigate and enjoy anything offered.
The interenet used to be a fun place to visit and a tool to be used to
unwind and get lost in stories and information in and around the world
that I otherwise might not be a part of. Now, for me, it has increasingly
become just an addtional source of aggravation and drama to be avoided.
So back to my original question, ever ask yourself how much is enough?
Well Yahoo, how much is enough? How much money is enough for you to feel
the need to have so much advertising it chases your users away?
I sure will miss the old you. If you decide to change, we
may be able to be friends again. I sure wish there was something I could do to
help you. Oh wait. That's what I'm trying to do now, but I doubt anyone cares
so long as the ads are doing their dirty work. I guesss. I'll still have my Yahoo
email that I've had for 19 years. I really have and will continue to appreciate
it. So I'll check on you every once in a while to see if you're any better. But
sadly, due to greed, I doubt you will be. Good bye old friend.
