    Yahoo is now tracking Yahoo users with something called "web beacons" to see what they are doing when they are on the internet outside Yahoo.

    To opt out, you can go to:

    http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html

    Scroll down a while, and you will eventually see an "outside the network" section, there is a little "click here" line of blue text you can click on to opt out. Click only once.

    Thanks for the info, webmaster.

    I've used google for quite awhile now. I figure, if they're all powered by Google, why not just use Google?
