Yahoo bought flicker but i was with flicker from the start.
I think is crazy to force everyone to have a yahoo email account when you want a flicker account.Google is almost as bad,but their email accounts work,or seem to,i have one i needed to get to play store to get apps.
During the several years ive had yahoo accounts--i used to get one when i had to then forgot the name and pass
I have two email accounts one with fastmail the other free,when i set them up i could have the first name i chose,they both work really well.Fastmail was bought by Opera(browser)and now Opera has sold it back to fastmail so new sign ups cost $10pa other than that great accounts
My lavabit--nerdshack and mailshack were shut down by the NAS and GHCQ as they couldnt read the mails
The email environment is not easy.Yahoo when it worked i found really poor as a user.Yahoo would regularly hijack my log in to ask me for a phone number,other email,address, etc could take a long time to get to email
Yahoo take the point of view "its for free so they can hassle you"Fortunately google and afew others are still free and hassel free.Who needs yahoo
Im still away visiting in the south of France the other-side of the mountains that keep the spanish out so no reliably wifi,next week ill contact yahoo see what they can do
Best would be my flicker account with no email at all
I cant remember the name of the yahoo email i used back then,couldnt log in for so long
I have/had about 3 flicker accounts one i put some good travel images,Be happy if i get the VW account back
Thanks for the link
