Default Re: Time to act Against Yahoo

One of the many problems of inaction in cases like this is that the search engine and PPC markets are dominated by a few big companies and once one of the major players decides they can abuse minor niche market like narghiles the others will likely do the same. Still, I suppose the truth is that given most people in this hobby simply are not disturbed enough to start protesting. Of course the same is true of cigarette users who year after year passively accept higher taxes, ever more public bans, being denied health insurance and losing custody claims on their children and never join lobbying groups or protest anything. It seems some of us even accept the right of internet oligopolies not just lie about us and ban us from using their services but don't feel the need to protest such actions. Maybe we really do get what we deserve.
