Re: This sums up Yahoo!s security policy to a -T-

I applaud Yahoo for adhearing to their policies.  All the familly has to do
is send legal documents of their son's death, and legal documents stating
who they are.  At that point I'm sure the account information will be
released as per Yahoo's policy.

  Instead of trying to get the media involved, they should be getting their
laywer involved as the clock's ticking on the 90 no-activity delete.  Their
lawyer will know the correct documents to send over to yahoo as proof of
their son's death and that his parents have control over their dead son's
belongings/estate.

  Perhaps what yahoo *could* do, or *should* do, is remove the 90 day
time-out on their son's e-mail account until they can have a chance of going
through the courts.  Perhaps extend it up to 365 days...

If their refusal to release that mail even after their customer is dead
is
an indication as to their privacy practices, three cheers for Yahoo.

Don't you get the whole "slippery slope" thing?  If it's ok when you're
dead (which it's not, my stuff is my stuff...destroy it when you're sure
I've really shuffled off elsewhere, unless I gave you very specific
instructions otherwise) then maybe it's ok if you are in a coma...then
maybe it's ok if you are really sick and someone else is your legal
guardian becaue you've been declared non-compos mentis...then maybe it's
ok if it's your parents...or your wife...or a concerned neighbor...

What's in that mailbox is/was mine, none of your business unless I chose
to share it.

i couldnt agree more... another case of lame, illogical media bullshit
BRAVO YAHOO

happy hollidays,

m.w
