Maybe people were a bit harsh with a short editorial. But what the heck did they do with all the WT's and patches archive??? Would have at the least appreciated some sort of warning, Hey we are going to erase a huge resource listing. Grab them while they still exist.

As for the text. Well it is on the pandering side of things. Take a devisive tone and things can get.. well.. devisive. wink

Well guess what, Yahoo- I'm happy to admit I'm 62, retired and have recently discovered(2yrs ago) the world of computer games. And there are lots more like me out there with the time and money to support this new hobby happydance

I play adventure, action, 1st person and 3rd person, mouse or keyboard, it dosn't matter as long as it's a good game that takes me into an imaginary world. thumbsup

welcome to boomers you two!!
Mary,
I got the same reply as you and nothing to date concerning a personal response-I didn't expect one, but they are the ones that said tehy would.
In our society today the babyboomers are now the approaching or at retirement age-WE are the largest age group in this country and I would think a few others. This generation has more time and may I add began and continued with the "computer age". Very rude to leave us out of any demographic that involves computers or age.
(I was thinking of unless you include diapers, however...Depends lol )

I think it's clear Yahoo is getting senile.Yahoo has all the symptoms. And you keep on writing angry letters. How dare you all. Why not sending them a nice postcard with a glitter fairy on it?

Well, at 72 I guess I'm way too far out to play computer games according to Yahoo. Since I've been playing before there was even access to the Internet or a Yahoo, playing Dungeons and Dragons on ARPANET, I guess I've outlived my time according to them.

Well, accordong to me, I enjoy the games, am as good as any at it, and will keep doing it until they plant me, not Yahoo my kids. Keep gaming you old foggys and kick ass.
