Yahoo! censors e-mail about protests

Yahoo! has long been known for colluding with mainland China to rat out dissidents and reporters - which has netted lengthy prison sentences for some of the targeted journalists. The failure to rein in Yahoo! is now bringing more grief, as the online giant is now blocking e-mails about the Wall Street protests. (The protests have been almost completely ignored by The Media.)

Folks who use Yahoo! to send out information about the protests are finding their e-mail blocked with a message saying, "Suspicious activity has been detected on your account. To protect your account and our users, your message has not been sent."

AT&T customers might see their e-mail censored too - because AT&T now farms out its e-mail service to the pro-Red Chinese Yahoo!

This is the same Yahoo! that several years ago began blocking the e-mail list that I operated to distribute my newsletter.

Meanwhile, New York City police are violently suppressing the protests. I guess they didn't learn shit from being sued over what happened at the Republican National Convention.
