              • Absolute rubbish. You idiots. Bring back the use of camera, the invisible button, address book, etc. Imbeciles

                An imbecile paid another imbecile to come out with an imbecility. Tha's Yahoo for you. My idea is:
                1. Fire the first imbecile.
                2. Fire the second imbecile.
                3. Fire Yahoo Board of Directors.
                4. Hire the cleaning lady as the CEO.
                5. The cleaning lady will bring back the old version of Yahoo Messanger and restore peace in the Galaxy with her magic broom.

                                      • Looking here, it seems as if everyone has the same problem. I want to be able to see my emails and respond accordingly.

                                        Looking here, it seems as if everyone has the same problem. This is my first time using Yahoo Messenger, so I don't know what past versions were like. My one complaint as of now is, I want to be able to see my emails and I want to respond easily.

                                        Please.
