It's free for a reason. Stop trying to get around it or they'll stop
offering free services at all. Don't spoil it for people.

In general, if you want somebody to provide a service for
you, you have to play by their rules. If you don't like
the rules, get your own web site.

I agree with the sentiment, but I disagree with the reasoning. It's decidedly
*not* free. Yahoo incures considerable expense to provide the service to the
public. You "pay" Yahoo for the service by having advertisements appear in the
posts. If you stop "paying" Yahoo for the service, the service will disappear.
