    Um, is there a particular reason places like Yahoo couldn’t simply just delete/erase accounts from servers if nobody’s using them and a platform is making them available to anyone who wants them…complete with last-known personal details?

  2. That should have logically happened, but for some strange reason, Yahoo decided to released the unused email IDs & usernames.

    There’s no special reason that Yahoo shouldn’t just delete dead accounts.
    They are showing a decent behaviour by alerting the owners of these accounts.
    It shows some kind of good costumer care, even though they do not need to with the free accounts.
