Please forgive me if this has been mentioned before, but I'm on digest &
haven't seen it.

I've been reading with great interest the recent thread on ethics in
technical writing. On a related note, I saw this article in today's online

Perhaps anon is employed by Yahoo? Hmmm...

So bringing it back to tech comm & ethics: will you as a technical writer
use Yahoo as a research source now that they are in fact in the pornography
business? It seems the ethics question is starting to hit a little closer
to home.

Really interested in what you have to say.
