jholder, that's nice to hear, but I need to know that this acquisition is good for me, not that you will courageously struggle against the Yahoo overlords in the interest of the community. Reassuring us that you will do the right thing almost makes things worse, by implicitly accepting the assumption that absent your efforts, Yahoo would do the wrong thing.
Personally, I think this *is* good for me, and for others similarly situated.
I would assume that you are talking to your SaaS providers separately, and I accept that there are possible ways this could be good for them, too, but they're ultimately none of my business.
It's unfortunate that the news leaked, preventing you from giving the news to the SaaS shops in a more appropriate manner.
