After joining Yahoo, I have taken up many of the services, including calendar, mail, movies, etc. One thing I cannot figure out is why I’m asked to log in at any given time. I haven’t’ been able to figure out a pattern in two years: i just know sometimes it knows me and sometimes it doesn’t.
Yahoo, snapfish, ofoto, netflix, and everyone else who asks me to log in: hear me now. Ask me about my preferences. I am happy to tell you have two computers, both single use. I’m happy to tell you you can log me on forever, as I am the only oe who uses these things. read my IP. know me. cookie me. please. I’ll tell you I’m not paranoid about my yahoo mail or my snapfish photos or my netflix queue because I have no secrets there. I’ll tell you i am paranoid about my wells fargo account and my etrade account and don’t cookie me at all there.
I will happily tell you everything, if you would please stop second guessing me, and just let me tell you what I care about. you can second guess me in teh beginnning, and be paranoid as you wish, but i will free you of responsibility if i could just set my preferences. your lawyers would probably love it.
yahoo, please stop asking me to sign in.
