P/O'd about Yahoo censorship

Postby riverrat » Thu Jun 16, 2005 3:12 pm

A trade offer I made sat there for days unaccepted. Now Eaton injures his finger and before I can cancel it the manager accepts it!! So in a fit of rage I verbally assaulted him thru 2 postings. Lots of cursing, thanking him for allowing me to see his email address ;), etc. Complaints about his actions just got me a stock answer. Then all of a sudden the 2 posts were deleted!!!
They have allowed some of the most vile language I've ever read on these puplic leagues. My posts get deleted for using a couple of f-bombs+++.
What gives? Finally a new policy?
Yahoo...you suck!!!

yeah, well hopefully eaton will be ok by july. the thing about yahoo is that it states somewhere that you cant use abusive language or something like that. most times people dont complain, but if they do they probably delete the post. so it looks like your tirade got to someone.

My personal fav. from Yahoo is when someone complains about a team name! If Yahoo finds it to be offensive, it changes the name over to Team A... Not sure if they lock the team name though.. it happened in a Pub league I was in after an owner went out in a blaze of glory.

You need to chill. You're the idiot that left the trade on the blocks.

Besides, the trade could have gone through, and he could get hurt a day later. Would you have felt better about that? Eaton's probably gonna be back fine, and if not those are the chances you take.

I usually hide my email so ignorant jerks like you can't use it.

By the way, thanks for the post. I just rushed over to cancel my trade for Eaton. :-D

Just by reading your post, it seems obvious why Yahoo deleted your posts.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
