Yahoo, Muslims, Catholics and Jews

Recently Yahoo! was forced to change a policy which prohibited any e-mail address that included the letters "allah". Ostensibly this was to prevent insulting Muslims, but e-mail address including Jesus or priest or Jew were allowed, even in contexts that would be offensive.

Because of news attention on the fact that even those whose last names was Callahan would be banned, Yahoo has since lifted the ban.

My advice, leave Yahoo! and use a different e-mail system.
