I heard on the radio that they've been involved with porn for more than 2
years now...what's happened recently may be a new development, but it's not
like their hands were "clean" to begin with.

And since I'm not one of those who'd quit Yahoo, I do have to put "clean" in

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.
