I donít understand what is going on with Yahoo Japan. First, out of nowhere they decided not to accept credit card payment from outside of Japan. We are their customers for 8 years. We always paid our bills via credit card payment and a couple of month ago they decided not to accept credit card payments anymore. Even for longtime customers.

And now they decided to shorten the display URL from 250 characters (I agree that this might be a bit too much) to 29 characters! Where the hell is this number coming from? Yahoo USA has 35 characters, Google and Bing have 35 characters! What are thinking to shorten it that so much?
What is their point? And of course no explanation!

It looks like that their target for this year is to annoy their longtime customers! Or do they try to be Google?
