    omg, i was FINE with all the stuff everyone else in the world HATED about you flickr/yahoo
    but now .... THIS... ?!
    forcing me to make a yahoo account instead of loggin in via my google???

    so ANNOYING.

    and... i go thru the steps.. and make a stupid yahoo account(btw, it wouldnt let me make "[email protected]" fyi) and it takes me to login screen, and tells me that theres no such account.

    *throws hands in air*

    im just going to print everything and mail copies to everyone...


    feel free to draw lil yellow stars on yer favs, and flip them over for a handy blank surface to write comments on...

    My wife tried to log in to the business account on flickr last night for the first time (normally I do it) and within 10 seconds was yelling at Yahoo. They're royally [email protected] this up.

    Are they doing this selectively? I can still login to flickr with my google id.
