Yahoo’s Literally Gone 404

(EDIT: Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of Flickr, has responded publicly about the situation. A through and deserved mea culpa to go along with those super-sized lumps on the noggin.)

Yahoo! seems to be making bad decisions on a routine basis and is no longer getting the benefit of monetizing my clickstream as a result of a culmination of things (China for one) and tipping at today’s poor choice as can be read at Thomas Hawk’s Digital Connection: Flickr = Censorship

(EDIT: If you ever decide to delete your Flickr account and My Yahoo accounts… Delete the Flickr one first: They’re tied at the hip and if you delete your Yahoo! account first… you can’t delete your Flickr account. One more bad bit of execution…)

My Yahoo! mail account is being has been terminated next. My Flickr account is being has been terminated right after that. So, if you’ve put my Yahoo! email in your address book… It’s toast in a few minutes. Anyone referencing my Flickr photos… gonna have an ugly 404 in it’s place momentarily too.

Bye, bye Yahoo! (Here’s how to kill a Yahoo! mail account) (and… here’s how to kill a Flickr account)

    The story about Rebekka Gudleifsdóttir’s pictures being ripped off and then ripped down made it to BBC Technology news also along with the Flikr cencorship controversy.
