Changes Wall St Hostile Takeover Artist Daniel Loeb Has Made At Yahoo

by Internet Freedom Wednesday, Jun. 26, 2013 at 5:47 AM

With his leveraged buyout and the power of unethically acquired capital Daniel Loeb and his henchmen have taken over Yahoo and have accelerated negative change in 2013.

Wall St takeover of Yahoo in 2011 and 2012 has meant censorship,promotion of war, sensationalist tabloid journalism,

promotion of hunting and meat, a decline in free Yahoo email services Some on Yahoo groups are told

their group is 'invalid'. Some are unable to add

new contacts to their email lists. Phone support has declined. Email clients have been informed of a 25 minute wait. Yahoo help online has also declined.

Under Loeb's thumb:

Yahoo now requires a privacy busting inclusion of mobile phone number for new accounts.

Yahoo has now partnered with Zionist Sergei Brin who with the CIA developed Google illegally using public tax money and

Stanford University computers and is actively promoting Facebook, started by fellow Zionist and the world's most

aggressive dataminer, Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook

inflates its members, including a Facebook member with 5 accounts as 1 member, e.g.

Yahoo has begun more aggressively to censor Muslim news.

Yahoo has been putting animal flesh ads on vegan sites, soft porn ads on feminist sites.

Yahoo has ended easy phone support for email password help. Waits of 25 minutes or more have occurred.

Yaho0 has ended emailing the company for Yahoo Group problems.

Yahoo has put leftist political messages in the Spam folder of Yahoo Groups

Yahoo has increasingly censored peace, environment, abolition, animal rights and other postings.

Yahoo has labeled longexisting Yahoo groups hostilely. Some are called 'invalid group'. Others have the label

'group does not exist'. Still others have been deleted entirely.

Yahoo has violated the contract it made with Egroups it made when it bought Egroups.

Yahoo has war promoting news items now as well as features of the sleazily dressed.

Board of Directors.. most new since the Wall St takeover of Wall St in 2012.. 2 of 10 or only 20% are women.. no African Americans are represented. Now Yahoo appears to be censoring Wall St news along

with other news. Daniel Loeb successfully

kicked out cofounder Jerry Yang. See also:

Mr. Amoroso resigned recently under pressure.
