Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

I think for the gazillionth time over the pass 4+ years of using Instant Messaging, I have recieved the following message

"Yahoo is shutting down August 17th. Yahoo wants to get rid of free messenger. If you delete this and don't pass it on, your name will be deleted. Alot of people have already been deleted. Right click on the group name of your buddy list and click 'send to all in this group' Each person you sent it to will count as a signature on a petition DO NOT DELETE!!!! This is Yahoo President Jay Russell, I am sorry to announce that Yahoo has reached its maximum number of accounts two million. If you would like to keep your account for free send this to everyone on your list. This way we can know which accounts are being used and which accounts we can delete. Send this within 8 days and your account will remain free."

I know this is a bunch of hogwash. But in view of the recent yahoo-antics, I seriously hope they do shutdown. Thatway ppl can just move on to much friendlier IMs like MSN, ICQ and AOL.

*/me wonders if viewers have seen this CNet posting about Yahoo scrapping enterprise IM*

I'm sick and tired of getting the message, "Yahoo is shutting down August 17th. Yahoo wants to get rid of free messenger. If you delete this and don't pass it on, your name will be deleted. Alot of people have already been deleted. Right click on the group name of your buddy list and click 'send to all in this group' Each person you sent it to will count as a signature on a petition DO NOT DELETE!!!! This is Yahoo President Jay Russell, I am sorry to announce that Yahoo has reached its maximum number of accounts two million. If you would like to keep your account for free send this to everyone on your list. This way we can know which accounts are being used and which accounts we can delete.
