So far my experience with Yahoo leagues is rather poor. I can't say for certain that I will be playing in the future.
The first league I played was a custom-scored private league. It was a mix of knowledgeable veterans and newbies, of which I was one. I was leading for months when one manager released ALL of his cuttable players right around the trade deadline. Being new to the game, I expected the commish to intercede. He didn't -- and after a few days I was left to grab at what was left, which wasn't much. Somehow I was able to hold my lead by a few points, but it killed the enjoyment. The player claimed he did it because he didn't have the time to manage his team, but the reality was he had an axe to grind.
This year I am in two Yahoo public leagues, and while one is great, the second has a guy who was in colllusion with another player to get Pujols -- and succeeded -- and now is in first place. This guy also picks up players and drops them immediately to keep them away from others. The manager he is in collusion with -- which is probably his second team -- does it also. I complained to Yahoo! but they did nothing. Too much juvenile behavior and cheating in Yahoo! leagues for my taste.

When you can't view the trade screen without having "O-rank" as the first thing listed after a players name, it's hard to avoid. Even if you know you're winning a trade, seeing that you are giving up a top-50 O-rank player for someone outside the top 150 is rough... even if you think the numbers are meaningless.
