What the heck is Yahoo thinking?

In this era of nasty malware and Internet scams you'd think one of the Internet icons would know better. You'd be wrong.

With that in mind, I nominate Yahoo for the "cobbler's children have no shoes" award. To renew a subscription to Yahoo Mail Plus (which went up $10 this year for some reason, a 100 percent increase), Yahoo sends its subscribers a billing e-mail from a cryptic domain, cc.yahoo-inc.com, with absolutely no prior warning. The e-mail of course asks you to verify personal information and supply your credit card number--an Internet taboo if there ever was one. What the heck is Yahoo thinking? | News.blog | CNET News.com
