Yahoo Messenger Chat / Use of Booting Programs - Hacking

1 New South Wales, Australia Review updated:

Watch out in CC1 - CC3 Christian Chat Servers on Yahoo Messenger - Been alot of Booters being used also account hacks and melicious java script - I would like yahoo to start prosecuting users who don't follow their legal terms of use or at least put in place term @isp bans -noexpire for serious violators of the term of use its getting beyond a joke to use yahoo services. Also the amount of violence and language and porn bots used CC1-CC3 Christian chatrooms are no place for family stick to the church.Also beware of alot of spam-scam mail from these rooms. Please get room moderators yahoo or @server ops or do something - you will just loose long term loyal users to fools that can't follow terms of use :-((.

    I think that Yahoo should be held accountable. When you do a netstat, it is a yahoo IP address booting you. So the Yahoo service doesnt protect its customers from booters, and worse, the Yahoo service locks up your machine and prevents from accessing other services while you are being booted.

    The only way to stop this is to force yahoo to act, that means holding them financially responsible for the harm their poorly managed services inflict on people. If they cant manage messenger responsibily, it should be shut down and make room for a competitor to replace them.

    Yes, there is a joker randomly booting chatters in the Nevada 1 chat room. His foul language and making fun of everone he can is anoying. When I ignore him, I get booted. I for one am tierd of his childishness and am going to look for another chat forum besides Yahoo. I have sent complaints about him and nothing has been done. So, I'm done with Yahoo

    Yahoo is getting worse and worse. In the 4 rooms that comprise Jewish Chat we have a vicious booter named Ramos. He has hundreds of ID's, an IP hider and a very strong boot program that compromises almost all chat client programs. He floods the room with filthy screen names that not only degrade our female guests but also the Hebrew names of G-d and our Holy books. After he floods the rooms with these fake ID's, he locks out the screen names of ANY Jewish chatter at will.
    I am not prejudice as our Torah teaches us to judge people individually on character. This Muslim "man" has been polluting our rooms now for 5 months. He now threatens peoples lives and completely destroyed our once peaceful chat.
    The only Jewish chatters that remain are not religious so they dont live up to the moral standards I would wish could be represented in the rooms once again. At one time we welcomed all people of all faiths who wished to ask questions and enjoy a peaceful chat with Jewish chatters. For most people who come to our chat, this is the first time they ever have had conversations with people of the Jewish faith. I no longer recommend that people come to our rooms for decent chat.

    With Regards

    Yahoo will not address any complaints - they just don't care!
    I have spent hours talking with their useless agents trying to sort out problems with messengerand more hours sending logfiles over and over again for them finally to admit that the only solution is to update to YIM10 which does not support my OS - win2k! Their solution is for me to upgrade to windows 7 !! Firefox manages to update the browser and still make it compatible with all OSs!
    I used to be able to send voice messages in Conference but no longer - voicemail rarely works either - the reason is because I am on a dial-up connection and the upload speeds are not fast enough for Yahoo's servers.
    To their credit they do actually respond fairly promptly to your questions but of course they cannot usually address the problem!
    I have always used yahoo mail but am so disenchanted with Yahoo these days that I can't wait to migrate to open source software where things will be updatable, and in the meantime try Google's mail and Talk services - can't be any worse than yahoo! Well there is Microsoft which is definitely the worst of the lot! No wonder Yahoo wants to join forces with them.

    Now I want to complain about this board!! How ridiculous to allow a comment like that from paul_pierce342742 Firstly it should be spell checked and about 1/10th shorter.
    He does have a genuine grievance no doubt, but there's really no need to post an example of inane comments and insults from several hours of Yahoo chatter!
    Perhaps the board ought to use a text character limit on comments.

    Yes I completly agree, Yahoo doesn't carei In Nevada room 1 there are two Idiots: eddie and blake that are the main booters. Thier foul language and degrading of others has caused many long time chatters to leave. I havent been in there in months, I finally went on last night to see if things have changed, they haven't. I'm done yahoo.

    You got to be kidding. I've never read so much bias by yahoo in my life regarding Trump. How dare you pick on Ivanka. She the most poised & literate person I 'v seen. You probably think Clitons daughter is better. Thats a joke. I know based on the posts here you don't answer them but I thought I'd write anyway. YOU ATE BIASED YOUR REPORTING IS TRIVIAL!
