Just opened up both Yahoo UK and Yahoo Philippines news sites and was presented with a link to the following on each site:

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.

Good question. Succinctly phrased. Who knows the 'Secret of the Black Magic Box'?  :( :( :(

I should be more worried, if I really cared that is, what Verizon/Yahoo is planning to do with the personal info and data they have harvested and shared with  " ... partners to bring you relevant ads and   ... "

Stay safe all.
