Yahoo!’s bizarre email recycling decision comes back to haunt the company

A scant four months after we first broke the news that Yahoo! has implemented a bizarre system of recycling old email addresses once users close their account, things have got a whole lot worse. As we predicted at the time in our report, ‘this seems like one of the most bizarre things we’ve heard for a long time, and something which is potentially open to massive abuse if people aren’t careful.’
