That’s how I feel. And it’s all Yahoo!‘s fault.


Flickr have sent out the message we’ve all been dreading; the one that says all old-school flickr members are going to have to use a Yahoo! ID instead of their original user names as their login ID.

The problem is this; I love flickr, but hate Yahoo! I dislike their crappy interfaces, terrible page layout ability, so-called email service, intense “me-too” also-ran attitude and general inability to get things right. I don’t like the way Yahoo! IDs work (and randomly expire), and don’t want it. I’ve been on Flickr since the start. So why should I lose my ID?

I know. I know. It’s only a little thing, and no great loss, but a heck of a lot of other people feel the same.

Maybe it’s time to take another look at Zoomr after all.
