Reasons for Yahoo Web Messenger Discontinuity

Yahoo says latest version of Yahoo Mail offers Web messenger experience to the users,”thanks to the latest version of Yahoo! Mail launched earlier this year, users can now easily IM and SMS with Yahoo! Messenger in Yahoo Mail with only a web browser, centralizing their emails, IMs, and SMS messages in one easy location. This feature in Yahoo! Mail made Yahoo! Web Messenger somewhat obsolete.”

You will be losing MORE customers this way than you’ll EVER gain back. Millions and millions of us are SICK and TIRED of having to learn a new system, but because you think it’s easier for YOU to do so. PLEASE, can’t you leave well enough alone?
