Hi folks, I run a support group for people with Hyperthyroid cats. It is a Yahho group so to join the group one has to join Yahoo, the messages can be received via e-mail so having joined one need never go to the Yahoo site again.
A guy wants to join but is reluctant to sign up to Yahoo as he is paranoid (his desciption) about spyware and adware having had his PC messed up by them recently (required a reformat).
I know that Yahoo has been critisised for the fact that their adware blocker doesn't automatically block anything from their own advertising partners .... but then they wouldn't get much revenue if it did would they?
I've never heard of anyone having problems with spyware as a result of joining Yahoo, and I can't see why anyone would, but I said that I would post on here and see whether anyone had heard anything to the contrary.
I don't think that he has anything to worry about but said that I would come on here to get confirmation.
