Yahoo MyBlogLog Shutdown Phishing Note

Really, Yahoo? Really? After I don’t know how many centuries of trying to tell me "never, ever click a link if you get an e-mail from some weidly-hyphenated variant of a trusted provider," you send me THIS?

It’s sad enough you’re killing MyBlogLog, but did you have to let me know with a note that looks like a phishing attempt?

(Note to my mom and granddad: you can’t see it in the picture, but all of those links go to yahoo-email.com and not yahoo.com, and you have no idea who yahoo-email.com really is. Never ever EVER click something that’s labeled "https://oursecureserver.com" but when you hover over it shows "http://someotherserver.com" in the status bar at the bottom of your Web browser.)

  1. Also, the "help pages" link in the mail I got seems to go to another *different* property they’re shutting down (ie. Featured Listings), which I don’t think is related to MyBlogLog. So many sunsets, I can see how it could get confusing
