to Yahoo

Great for the folks at but is this good for the greater net. I keep seeing great social networks getting picked off by Major companies. I am beginning to wonder if the machine that we have created as a community through need to route around the man is just being bought up by the man.

Personally I would have been willing to support with a yearly contribution had they been able to keep the site independent. I am subscribed a great number of people’s list but what exactly is Yahoo going to do with that info when they tie users to out Yahoo user names. []
