YATANIC! ICEBERG! DEAD AHEAD!

yatanicFor weeks we’ve been striving
To save Classic Groups.
Since Yahoo just wants us
To jump through their hoops.

A group was created
To further our goal.
We threw ourselves into
The cause, heart and soul

There were 100 members
In no time at all,
All joining together
To stop this downfall.

We wrote Yahoo’s Execs,
And the media too,
Even told Advertisers
What they planned to do.

We feverishly worked,
Though it was a gamble,
While in her blog, Layla,
Continued to ramble.

“Stop this remodel”,
We shouted as one,
“You have no idea,
Of the damage you’ve done!

You’re destroying our archives!
Post numbers are gone,
Threading is chaos,
And our subjects are gone!

We don’t want your silly
Grey grinning ghosts!
Bring back our home page,
It mattered the most!

Our photos are scrambled,
Some even are missing,
Why are you doing this?
Our pleas you’re dismissing!

We simply can’t function
With your new “Yabook”!
Just give us an opt out,
To keep Classic Look!

Things that were private,
Have been compromised!
Members lists show,
And even archives!

We have no control of our
Management functions,
Some people are thinking
Of filing injunctions!

The thousands of posts
In the Suggestion Thread,
Are all going ignored,
Can’t you hear what we’ve said?

STOP THIS REMODEL,
We don’t want this mess!
You’ve upset us all,
And you’re causing distress!

If we wanted Facebook,
Then we would be there!
Our groups are our “homes”
Do you even care?

You came with a bulldozer,
You’re crushing them flat!
Don’t do this, we’d rather
Just stay where we’re at!

Don’t you know thousands
Of users are leaving?
And all of the rest are
Just sitting here grieving?

Please listen to us,
While we are still here,
Because if you don’t,
Then surely I fear,

No one will be left,
To hear what you say
We’ll be in our lifeboats,
All paddling away

Cause we see the iceberg,
And before it can hit,
We’ve all made our plans,
We’re ready to quit.

So please take a minute,
Slow down and think?
Because your Yatanic,
Well, it’s doomed to sink.”
