Yahoo! Inc. Message Board

  • Piranhacat Piranhacat Jun 16, 1998 1:30 PM Flag



    Unfortunately Yahoo is making a big mistake by
    discontinuing support of BB message boards just at a time when
    the Raging Bull is starting up. They will no doubt
    lose thousands of posters as there are many who will
    only follow one board system. With that they will feed
    the competition and advertising dollars will soon
    follow. Bad move. Yahoo up until this point has been one
    of the most foresighted Companies in Cyberspace.
    They have thrived on the one stop shopping concept.
    The boards being true freedom of speech, and Free as
    well have seriously trounced SI's bottom line and made
    many (myself included) allegiant to them. I think they
    should rethink this move before they lose people in
    droves and the competition such as Infoseek or some such
    makes a deal with the Bull. It is easy when you are
    clearly the best to get complacent. To do so in
    Cyberspace where time moves quickly is in my opinion Yahoos
    first major mistake and is a mistake of the same
    magnitude of Coke changing their formula some years back. I
    would hate for a Great company such as this to become a
    Short because of changing the formula of a working
    economic model.
    Just my Opinion.
