In the meantime, if anyone receives an IM or e-mail purporting to be from that ID, especially if it was sent after February 1st, send it my way. Also, if you sent an e-mail/IM to that ID since Monday morning (right before I started my train trip with my company), consider that info completely lost and re-send it, if possible, to my e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The only good thing about this is that I never used that address for e-mail, and I barely used the Yahoo groups anymore. If the account is blocked, I might just switch to a backup account (yohannon1), at least for IM purposes. Yahell messenger users, please re-add me there!
(And yeah, there is a lot of other non-yahoo related stuff to talk about/post... I'll do that later)
