All Your Data Are Belong to Microsoft

That's right - if Microsoft manages to buy Yahoo - they get all of that information you have trusted to Yahoo for the past several years. All of your email. All of your contacts. All of your bookmarks and photos and comments and contacts and notes. All of it:

We transfer information about you if Yahoo! is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Yahoo! will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

I know this is America and we're only supposed to care about stockholders, not stakeholders, but the thought of Microsoft having all of my data is not something I take lightly.
