It's sad but apparent that the days when one could go to a Yahoo message board and sometimes get incredibly useful information are over. Alas the domain of the Yahoo message board is now the permanent home of spammers, hate-mongers, and several other of the various breeds of miscreant. It seems Yahoo has chosen to not police its boards, assumingly when they don't politically agree with something. So now they miss their earnings? Who knew a company stupid enough to not maintain neutrality on something so fundamental as message boards would also be stupid enough to not run their company properly. If you go to Twitter and type $(stock symbol) in the search bar (like "$swhc"), you will see why yahoo is going away, as it should. Oh well. Times change, and it appears that on the plains of the Internets Serengeti, Yahoo is in the process of earning its Darwin Award. That's the award you get when you suck, and are too stupid to see possibilities past your politics.
Don't know the budget for this, but imagine it's WAY down in the noise range as far as military expenditures go. They could probably upgrade to a new sidearm for less than what Obama and his crew spends on vacations.
