Yahoo Offers Inactive Usernames Wish List

Any Yahoo IDs that have been out of use for a year or so will be scrapped. This is to make way for new users who are eager to employ Yahoo’s services. A month’s time is all that Yahoo is granting inactive account holders to log in. Otherwise their domains will be deleted and the newcomers will have access to fresh Yahoo mail accounts. Yahoo has even included a wish list for those individuals who want a new name. All you have to do is sign up at the specific site and give five usernames in order of preference. Then you click the button and get a message in return. Even if your first favorite is unavailable, Yahoo will go ahead and start with the second and then the third. And the fun thing is you can fill the submission form again and again. You can make your wish list by August 7, 2013.

Unfortunately, such operations are ideal for hackers and spammers who can utilize them for their nefarious purposes. Yahoo is looking into this aspect of the equation. In order to specify that a previous site has a new owner, Yahoo has created a “Require-Recipient-Valid-Sinceservice. Thus for now at least Yahoo’s IDs are a hot commodity. This compost heap ofinactive IDs is a great idea provided that it doesn’t get into the wrong hands. The prevention of ID theft and fraud remains on top of the to-do list for Yahoo.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
