Loading the page might take you away from Yahoo! Image Search (Not recommended)
Pah, that's nothing. Have you seen the page facebook sends people to if they try to follow a link to a site that has had the gall to block facebookexternalhotlink?
I put Yahoo on my "ignore" list ages ago but am now seriously rethinking the action. (Different thread, different forum.) Between the Cache-- which goes "index page, favicon, index page, favicon" in regular progression with nary a robots.txt in sight, and Slurp-- which picks up complete pages, human-style, complete with the distinctively human trait of never bothering with robots.txt...
Uhm. What are these functions* supposed to be good for, again?
