Sign A Petition Against The Yahoo Acquisition

by Karthik on February 2, 2008 · 7 comments


If you think that the proposed Microsoft and Yahoo Merger isn’t all that good for the Internet Community as a whole. If you think Yahoo would rather live than die at the hands of Microsoft please sign the petition.

I’ve already outlined just about all the reasons why this acquisition isn’t a good idea in my previous post What Does A Combined Microsoft Yahoo Look Like. Please read it and consider signing the petition. The power is in the hands of us bloggers who could get the attention of mainstream media, and make the regulators rethink, and try and stop this deal from going through.

Forget all the crap that Steve Ballmer said in his press release, incase Microsoft does go ahead with the deal, it gets nothing out of it. There is no way it can defeat Google by acquiring Yahoo, and it means that we see the end of Yahoo, one of most longstanding Internet companies out there.

Please sign the petition over here

Come on guys, we need more people to sign up the petition. So far about 25 people have signed.. We need more people. Come on let us all show some love for Yahoo.

I think there could be some good coming out of Windows Live and Yahoo 360 merging together so I am going to have to say No to signing the petition.

Microsoft CANNOT be a Internet Company with its bad business & consumer policies.

I HATE Microsoft Online.

It looks like the petition page is broken. I have the following error when I try to sign it:
Method Not Allowed
The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /wp-content/cache/supercache/

@Andriy : Everything looks fine from my side, try visiting the petition page from the above link, and it should work fine, and there’s no index.htm at the end of the URL.

@Karthik: Thanks a lot. The link above works fine.
