Yahoo Sucks!

Sucks!

Up yours, Yahoo!

Written 1999

 

Jonathan Swift in Gulliver's Travels described a Yahoo as, "a race of brutish degraded creatures...having the form and all the vices of man.......vicious course persons". The founders of Yahoo actually named their company with this quote/definition in mind!

I had been trying for 6 months to get my site on to Yahoo. Finally I wrote to Url Support at Yahoo. Two of my pages were published in the interim. Url support advised that my pages load too slow. I wrote back that they must be using a wood burning Apple ll, cause all of the site inspection tests show otherwise.... Yahoo must've not liked my humor, next thing I know the two pages that were up vanished. I have e-mailed and e-mailed Url support about this and heard nothing from Yahoo. Yahoo Sucks! Hence, this Url. I am going to submit this Url monthly to Yahoo, think they'll publish it?

Anyone that restricts freedom of speech is a Yahoo!

Anyone that restrains trade is a Yahoo!

Anyone that can not cope with rapid growth is a Yahoo!

Anyone that is pretentious enough to ask you to "suggest a site" is a Yahoo!

Anyone that sells or buys over-valued stock (like Yahoo's) is a Yahoo!

Anyone that uses Yahoo is a Yahoo!

Here is a list of search engines that are 100 times better than Yahoo! Use these engines and boycott Yahoo!

Other Search Engines that Suck!

Hot Bot Sucks! A partner of Yahoo (sucks). Their engine spidered half of my pages then "they disappeared", rebsubmitted them, up a few days then "disappeared". Hot Bot does respond to E-mail, but the story changes.... it either takes 3 weeks, or 6 weeks or 6 months for your pages to be indexed....????

What U Seek Sucks! I have had the old "disappearing trick" happen 3 times with these world class jerks. They don't answer their E-mail.

UPDATE!


I posted this website on 3/20/99 and submitted it to 40 search engines including Yahoo on 3/22/99. On 3/23/99 within 24 hours I received this E-Mail. Hmmmm, very curious indeed!

Hi,

The URL you submitted has been added to Yahoo! It will appear after our next update, which will probably occur within the next 2-4 days.

You can find your entry at that time by looking through the "What's New" listings (located at http://www.yahoo.com/new/) or by doing a keyword search. Please note: you may see your site listed in our directory before it appears in our search engine database. It has come to our attention that various organizations have been sending unsolicited messages to new sites that appear in our listings. We're sorry if you're inconvenienced by messages of this kind; Yahoo! does not condone these messages in any way, nor do we divulge to anyone contact information for the sites we list. Thank you for taking the time to add your site. We rely on users like yourself to make Yahoo! complete and comprehensive. In order to keepYahoo! accurate, please also let us know of any future changes that might affect your listing. If you haven't already done so, and you'd like to return the favor and put Yahoo! on your own site, please see http://www.yahoo.com/docs/yahootogo/ for detailed instructions.

Thanks again,The Yahoo! Team

UPDATE!

On 3/31/99 Yahoo published this link on their What's New pages:

  • Top:Business and Economy:Companies:Internet Services:Search and Navigation:Yahoo!:Consumer Opinion
  • Seems Yahoo (sucks) has a sense of humor too.
