Yahoo! Groups’ closure and a tale of Oftel: Die-hard users ‘informally’ included telcos (The Register)

The Register: Yahoo! Groups’ closure and a tale of Oftel: Die-hard users ‘informally’ included telcos. “The tossing away of user-generated content on Yahoo!’s long-running Groups site on Wednesday was not just bad news for all the hardcore users who are about to lose all their precious things stored there. Many were quick to point at telcos, who were using Yahoo! Groups to manage phone number assignments.” WOW.
