Yahoo bans all email usernames with the word Allah in it.
Enquiries to Verizon revealed that a partnership with Yahoo! was to blame. Yahoo! will not accept any identies which include the letters “allah”.
Nor will Yahoo! accept yahoo, osama or binladen. But it will accept god, messiah, jesus, jehova, buddah, satan and both priest and pedophile.
Now this would be a wonderful time to be one of those tribes that when they invented a written language decided to adapt the word Allah in their name for god. I smell a wonderful lawsuit.
yet another reason to not deal with repressive regimes as Yahoo has…because when you do making that Repression come home is easy peasy
