I got frozen by Yahoo for publishing my league at the cafe

That's quite odd. You clearly advertised the Salary Cap league we're in on FFC and got pointed out for spamming the FBC? Nothing wrong with what you did and you had gotten an inappropriate response by the Yahoo customer rep, who probably doesn't have a clue of what you did.

I have to wonder with 12 Angry Men starting up in '07 and seeing how we're drafting here while using a Yahoo league that we could get pointed out in the same fashion. :-?

Well unless one of us reports our own league I don't see how that could happen.

I've sent Chad a PM and I'm looking into this. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Hmmm...did you spam the yahoo message boards with links to the cafe? Because that's what I read in the response from yahoo...perhaps you were chatting in the public "leaderboard" message boards and were promoting the cafe a lot? I don't know, but that's how I'm reading it..."you were spamming http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com"...just a thought. :-?

Funny story. I actually found the cafe through message board spamming on Yahoo.

So not all Yahoo message board spamming is bad, i guess.
