Thing I Hate of the Day:

Yahoo and their new "migration" to the Yahoogroupization of their just-fine bulletin-board system, Yahoo Clubs. Why are they doing this? Apparently, they don't think we're looking at enough ads. Under the Yahoo Groups format, we're forced to look at ads before we can read any posts in the club. These ads are accompanied by the disclaimer "Yahoo Groups is an advertising-supported service." Well, hey now, no shit! The alternative is that you can have these posts sent to your inbox -- with huge ads in the messages!! Revolt, people.
