Now they are even shutting down games. So, it's been fun, but Yahoo! is going the way of Myspace, AOL, Netscape, Webcrawler, etc. into the dumpster of once great Internet sites.

"Notice to users: Yahoo will be discontinuing Yahoo Games on Friday 13 May 2016."

Are you aware that Yahoo Inc. is looking to sell its Web operations ? Possibly to Google or Verizon.

LOL!

I don't have Yahoo. I actually prefer the main homepage sometimes. But as to this post: err... um... Yahoo had Games?

Are you aware Verizon has already sold all but their wireless services, mainly to Frontier to -possibly- get out of legal battles they were faced with?

The crappy part is, they sold the service contract but not the linked IP spaces so the buying company (Frontier) has to deal with the transition as they continue to convert their new clients.
A tiny percent of Fios clients who were already converted experienced service interruptions for days but due to this headache, Frontier had to stop the process until Verizon was aligned with the process.

This whole mess probably created additional lawsuits for both!
