Yahoo has found a new way to annoy its users, by denying them access to their emails.
No, this isn’t a joke, although people are actually laughing at the Sunnyvale company’s service for doing this.
Here’s what happened. Some users reported that Yahoo was blocking their inbox, because they were using Ad Blockers. Users who tried to login to Yahoo Mail with AdBlock Plus enabled for the website, were greeted by the following message.
