Learned about this years ago. I use to be a subscriber to rivals.com(college recruiting service).  The last year or so I was subscribing to that site, they were taken over by yahoo then just before I stopped the subscription, verizon purchased them.  I was not as much into using the local site of their's(Spartanmag) anymore and when verizon puchased them, that was it for me.
