The term "oracle" was intended to mean "source of truth and wisdom", and the term "officious", rather than being related to the word's normal meaning, described the many office workers who would use the Yahoo database while surfing from work.However, Filo and Yang insist they mainly selected the name because they liked the slang definition of a "yahoo" (used by college students in David Filo's native Louisiana in the late 1980s and early 1990s to refer to an unsophisticated, rural Southerner): "rude, unsophisticated, uncouth." This meaning derives from the Yahoo race of fictional beings from Gulliver's Travels. Like many search engines and web directories, Yahoo added a web portal.I think in 2014, the only chat service still around is Facebook but I never hear much about it. evolution once folks got tired of AOL they moved on to the FREE Yahoo!

The first I received the "manager" that was interviewing me had so many misspelled words and was so unprofessional I thought this has to be a scam and I ended the session and told them I wasn't interested.

made a surprise move last week and shut down its user-created chatrooms.

state farm spokesman phil supple said, “we were thoroughly appalled when we were told that our ads were appearing on those sites.

we took immediate action to see that they were withdrawn.” chatooms that yahoo!

I can remember spending HOURS in those chat rooms in the late 90's.

Truth be told, I was a mid-20's single male around that time and it was a great way to meet women. AOL had search filters where you could type in a ZIP code and it would show all the females currently online near you.

I received the email from Joseph Boyd who told me to set up a yahoo messenger name and add [email protected] told me to sit on line from 8am - 3pm and she would interview sometime in that period.

So today I received another e-mail saying that they thought I would be a perfect fit for a job and I thought back to my research.

This is really sad that there are so many people honestly trying to find work and come up against people to want to scam you and waste your time.
