|Yahoo accepting the spammiest of advertisers|
They ought to be ashamed

I don't use my Yahoo Mail very often, but today when I was using it, right in the left-hand sidebar where the menu is, there's a small "$" icon and the linked text:
Jobs (Open Jobs)
I remember when I used to admire Yahoo. But after this, they deserve to be beaten (by their competitors).

That ad is everywhere, not just with Yahoo. I love how the fake comment section has been closed for new comments "due to spam".

Yeah, but it says a lot about whoever's accepting this kind of trash as advertising -- especially the tricky way they're doing it.
Today in my Yahoo account in the same spot is says "(1) New challenge", as though it's a new message or something. There's absolutely nothing to identify it as an ad.
Yahoo has certainly gone downhill.

"Yahoo has certainly gone downhill." yep and they are going to get worse too.
I watched a documentary on CBC this wek about Yahoo and how they sell every little tidbit of information that they can collect from you when you on their pages, they track your browsing behaviour and sell any trends they detect to corporations so that those companies can better, more precisely market their products to you, through Yahoo of course. The adds that you are getting can vary significantly from the ones your neighbours are getting. They track your kids too. They find out the size of your family, where you live, what type of stuff you like etc.
Bad Yahoo. Once you were a decent search engine now your almost as bad a Google.
