Garbage to gold: How Yahoo unethically sells your spam email (Digital Trends)

Digital Trends: Garbage to gold: How Yahoo unethically sells your spam email. I believe I have mentioned this story before but this goes into more detail. “Yahoo’s golden era has passed and Yahoo Mail, once considered a serious competitor to Gmail, is now far less popular. It’s unlikely that you use it for your primary email account. So why should you care about its privacy policy? According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Yahoo’s parent company, Verizon, knows you don’t use that old AOL or Yahoo inbox. It knows they’re just full of spam. Yet strangely enough, it’s selling data pulled from it without telling you — and staying alive by doing so.”
