"It has come to our attention that you may have violated the TOS (Terms of Service)," said an anonymous Email received by the 10Q Detective on Sunday. “Pursuant to the TOS, Yahoo! reserves the right to terminate your account in the event that, among other things, Yahoo! believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the TOS."
Of interest, the anonymous (gutless) Email did not reference specific violations.
Did the 10Q Detective post content that was abusive, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable? Offensive, no—unless the readers prefer idle gossip to empirical-grounded data.
Did the 10Q Detective falsely state or otherwise misrepresent its affiliation with a person or entity? Contrary to countless allegations by our detractors, the 10Q Detective has never worked for Jim "Mad Money" Cramer or any third party looking to short Raser Technologies common stock.
Did the 10Q Detective upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that infringed any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party? No. But if Yahoo! prefers to get technical, its message boards often violate the copyright protection afforded the 10Q Detective, for we often find our postings uploaded to its Message Boards without our prior written permission!
Does the 10Q Detective disrupt the normal flow of dialogue on the Message Boards? Yes! If one assumes that those long the geothermal stock wish to engage in Al-Anon support-like talk on many of their threads, absent fact-based information.
"Kum Ba Yah!"
What’s next, getting together to do 'trust falls' in each other’s arms?
