I got frozen by Yahoo for publishing my league at the cafe

Postby chadlincoln » Sun Sep 10, 2006 7:31 pm

So I try to post in a public league I'm in and I can't because I'm locked from posting. I email Yahoo to ask about it. I get this email back:

Hello Chad,

Here is my one and only post about my league:

I posted one time in the classifieds section about my league and Yahoo locks me from posting on public forums? That's crazy. Anyone have any advice on what to do?

If I want to post in my Yahoo public leagues or any non-private league in Yahoo or any message board found throughout all of Yahoo, I am locked from doing that because I made one post in the classified section about my Yahoo Salary Cap league.

That can't be it... that's what the classifieds are for and Yahoo has never taken action about it. It has FBC's link in the email anyways. My guess is that you posted about the cafe in a league or something and somebody reported it.

you've crossed the line Chad.

there's your problem right there 8-o :-b

I find your situation odd. I thought many people posted the exact same info as you. I didn't read terms of service but I guess there is a rule. sounds stoopid to me.
