This morning, I was searching for a specific Yahoo message board and came up with nothing, so I assumed it was not there. Then I see that Slashdot reported the message boards have been removed.
Yahoo informs us that they are “working on new ways for readers to comment on the news and participate in a discussion around it.”
Very weird that they would just pull it, as Slashdot logically says, “I can understand wanting to fix the boards so they’re more useful but to take them down for months before a replacement is released?”
But is this surprising? Yahoo has done the same thing by “temporarily” removing blog search, which has yet to come back to this date.
