To whom it may concern, I’ve discontinued the use of my old Yahoo! account – daniazz that I primarily use for chatting (Yahoo! Messenger).

My new ID is safirulalredha.

The old Yahoo! account has been serving me for nearly 5 years and the reason I use it in the first place because of the online game I played back then. Me and my friends use it as an alternative communication medium to avoid our conversation be snooped by the game administrators.

Why not just create another Public Profiles?

Some of my friends did ask this question. But why I still insisted on creating a fresh new Yahoo! account?

In March 2007, start to discontinued the old email-based Flickr sign in. “Old Skool” Flickr user has been forced to merged their Flickr account with an existing or new Yahoo! account to continue using the service. Instead of using my old Yahoo! account, I create a new new one and merged it with my Flickr account. This is when I actually started realized that my decision to use my full name as my Yahoo! ID was a brilliant idea instead of just picking some random nickname or gaming handle. Now people will stop asking me stupid question on how I came up with that user name.

Furthermore, it’s only a matter of time del.icio.us (a very popular social bookmarking site which was acquired by Yahoo! Inc. too) going to jump into the bandwagon and stop the use of email-based sign in on their service. Mark my word my friend its time will come.

And there’s this thing called Spam

To convince myself even more I have to admit that my old account Yahoo! Mail inbox is full of spam. Even if it’s a legit email but still it’s just an invitation to join some random social networking sites sent by an idiot from my Yahoo! Messenger contacts. I find this quite annoying especially looking at my Yahoo! Mail inbox and look at the email subject that start or have the word “invitation”. Yes, these irresponsible asshole is doing random-mass-email-and-i-dont-care-who-i-send-it-to.

Zombie Contacts

I also found out that I have hundreds of contacts that I’ve added but only 1/3 of them that I still chat with. I still wonder whether the other 2/3 are still alive or not. Well, most of them are friends during my studies and also online game buddy. Other than that is just some random dudes from the interweb asking question related to my work. My biggest mistake in the past is that I add people that I barely know when it was just a short term relation.

In conclusion, there’s no point of having someone on your IM buddy list that you don’t chat with anymore. It’s better to get rid of them once and for all.


Need I say more?

Wrapping it up

After narrowing down the list, I’ve imported all the contacts (which I believe is still alive and of course important) to my new Yahoo! Messenger buddy list and sync it with my Address Book. So, if you don’t received any buddy request from my new Yahoo! ID safirulalredha this past few days, probably I left you out unintentionally somehow.

But please, do add me if you really wanted to and not because you have to.
