Max _1 ::: Would you mind explaining to me why Yahoo would even consider doing what you propose when they are the ones inviting mutiple IDs by allowing posters to have seven for each master name ? For all you know I can legally by Yahoo standards have 100s ,even thousands of IDs. The entire Yahoo message board can be just one person arguing with themselves if you stop and think about it .
You can have all the id's you want,as long as you post in "human" mode, that means you do real typing before posting.
What I mean is that now, the system can be easily spoiled writing childish "bot" that allow you to post in "machine gun" mode prepared text (spamming), or to automate starring based on content, on kind of sentiment disclosure...or whatever fantasy may suggest.
So I am not against multiple id's, as long as they are used by real people and not by computer programs.
I don't see any problem in typing a little number, do you ?
