    Another new handle to replace a revoked one


    Yes - the Yahoo censors have revoked my mullgnman12 handle for ostensibly continuing to post about "politics."

    How dare I post about healthcare reform on the board of a healthcare stock. For the most part, I avoided providing links to strictly posts about Obama or Israel or other matters not specifically related to healthcare.

    But it didn't seem to matter to Yahoo - to them, a political post is a political post regardless of whether it has important implications for the stock or not.

    My new replacement handle is chart12sezz (with an "a" in there).

    I can certainly see why Yahoo wouldn't like a lot of purely "political" posts on the boards in financial chatrooms but when on occasion "politics" plays such a key part in the stock price as healthcare reform does now, there is no doubt in my mind that it should NOT be construed as a violation of their Terms of Service. Unfortunately, a poster like myself has no format whatsoever in trying to convince them otherwise, It's impossible to talk to a live human being over there either over the phone or in person and they don't even issue warnings or admonitions - they simply revoke the messages and registrations.
