NO. No, no no no NO.

It was bad enough when Yahoo! bought Flickr and everyone had to change to a Yahoo! login and there were questions about privacy and accounts were randomly blocked as "unsafe"... but to imagine what would happen if Microsoft got in there? I shudder.

Yahoo! people... if you are listening to the blogosphere, just say NO. I will pay more for Flickr Pro if that's what it takes, just tell the big behemoth to back off.

Or just do a Google News search for Microsoft and Yahoo.... and you'll be reading all day long.
