I used to like Yahoo a lot – many good services conveniently bundled together. But ever since the dot-com bubble burst, they are getting worse and worse, trying to shove advertisement and marketing down your throat in a more and more obnoxious manner.

Their latest thing: Without telling you, they sign users up for all kind of marketing messages including postal mail and telemarketing!!! Sure, you can disable the preferences, but what is this good if you don’t know it’s there?
